      It looks like a hard landing.

      The wings are whole, the chassis are released. Rather, there wasn’t enough thrust on take-off - it crashed. Probably a couple took off.

        The fuselage behind the front landing gear is broken up ... It seems that it has “gotten it down” on landing and capsized.

          Only he is lying near the taxiing for some reason, the strip on the left, as I understand it.

        As you can understand from the message, everything happened already in flight, and not on takeoff. And then what is some kind of "craving"?

          In YouTube there is a more complete video of this disaster.
          In addition to this side (which lies on the lights), further about 500 meters on the same side of the runway, and also on the ground there is a second side (only on a broken chassis, and with open lights).
          Judging by the released flaps on the second side, a collision while taking off (or landing) in a pair ....

        In fact, all civilian pilots are engaged in transporting people. And all military pilots in wartime destroy people.
        The guys did not die in the war. And besides, it so happened that after joy at the VO about the dead pilots of the United States, there were incidents with the dead pilots of the Russian Federation.
        So we will not gloat another's grief.

            Any aircraft like any sophisticated technique tends to break. While the planes fly, they will fall. What do we have there. Nowhere to go from this. That is life.

            In general, under similar topics, if this happens we have full of characteristic comments. Which for some reason is not under this news. Namely: The truth will not be told to us anyway. Again everything will be blamed on the pilots. In any normal country, this plane would have been sent for scrap long ago. Officials shoved the money for repairs and the purchase of new equipment in their pockets. And of course, Putin is personally responsible for this disaster. What prevented him from replacing obsolete aircraft for so many years. In this case: it will sound like this: - Trump is personally responsible for this disaster. What prevented him from replacing obsolete aircraft for so many years. , this is it: Make America Great Again?

          And can you find in the USA a pilot who did not kill a single civilian in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia? Even some sort of S-130, converted into a gun-thorn.
          They have been forbidden to brag since 2006, otherwise the Internet would be inundated with the exploits of democratizers.
          What did the helicopter pilot who shot the ambulance in the center of Baghdad say?
          "There was a child ... But they themselves are to blame!".
          These two will not blame anyone that they fell under their shells.

            Set a table at home, invite your friends, and rejoice. Perhaps he will depart from the heart.
            We all walk under God. It is not known what will happen to us tomorrow. Therefore, gloating over the tragedy does not see the point.

              Only here is the nuance - American soldiers are not taught to defend their homeland. To study the topography of their native states, to provide lines of defense, to build shelters for their population. They are taught to go far abroad - and to take away: oil, land, life. And they know this, and go to this work. These guys probably dreamed of "going on a business trip", doing good work, getting higher salaries, benefits to the university, and interest-free housing loans. To send to the beloved, on occasion, the skull of the personally killed "terrorist". Who was hiding under the guise of a seller in a jewelry store.
              But here is a work-related injury incompatible with life ...
              I have more sympathy for the Taliban than for American soldiers. Those at least native land they fight for an idea.

                In this, I agree with you.
                But with regard to the topic of the article, an example is even how the representatives of Israel react to the tragic death of Russian pilots. They always express condolences, no matter how we relished the destruction of Israel F16.
                There is a good Russian proverb - about the dead either good or nothing.
                From the fact that two American pilots died, nothing in the World will change dramatically.

    The names of the deceased pilots were not disclosed - not at the request of relatives, this cannot happen, but only after notifying the relatives themselves. And only after that the ranks, names, surnames of the deceased are publicly announced. Competently work.

        In the video, this furrow comes from taxiing itself. Apparently, he walked almost parallel to the earth, but in an inverted form. And you can’t use the catapult. Therefore, the pilots died. IMHO, of course. There is no whole picture of what happened. request

      With such a long life, they should soon begin to fall one by one. Of course, if they flew, but did not stand without flights.
