Indonesia Air Force plane crashes into residential area

In Indonesia, the country's Air Force plane crashed. According to some reports, we are talking about a British-made Hawk Mk200 attack aircraft with a twin-shaft turbojet engine.


It is reported that the attack aircraft crashed in the Nurjadin Kampar region in the province of Riau. This region is located on the island of Sumatra and has a maritime border with Malaysia.

According to local sources, the Hawk 200 pilot survived. He managed to catapult. Possible casualties on earth are not reported.

According to recent reports, the Indonesian Air Force plane crashed into a residential quarter of the village. When falling, at least one building is destroyed, a fire broke out. At the crash site, rescuers and firefighters work. They disassemble the rubble and spill it with water so that the fire does not spread to the forest.

As can be seen from the published photo, the plane did not collapse completely. Its central and tail parts remained almost intact.

There are no details at what point the flight fell at the moment. Perhaps this happened when trying to take off. Official data on the causes of the accident has not yet been published.

    I hope there will be no casualties among residents ... although I understand the crowding of the local population - this is unlikely!
    Condolences to the Indonesians! Pilot ... well, I don’t know, I’m not a flyer, but ... The pilot must do everything - to take the plane away from residential development! And - They do it, sometimes at the price of their own Life ... but not in this case.

      Only Soviet-Russian pilots do this.
      The cost of training a modern pilot is much higher than the likely losses on the ground.
      Sadly, this is a fact.
      Therefore, the lives of the pilots are not at risk. Everywhere except Russia.
      There are situations when you consciously send people to death.
      Losing a car is half the trouble. Losing a professional military pilot is a disaster.
      If a pilot dies, then who will take a military aircraft into the air? And from bombs and missiles of the enemy much more people on earth will die. Exaggerated, but short.

      It’s absolutely true, but ..... situations are different and ... all .... it happens that a plane after a series of failures already has "brick aerodynamics" and you can’t do anything with it.
      Specifically for this occasion ... the fire is strong, the fuel output is full ... therefore, it fell almost after takeoff.
      Here is the screen of the air base, the take-off was at 180gr course .... the place of the fall .. "red" (Desa Kubang Jaya, Kecamatan Siak Hulu, Kabupaten Kampar, Propinsi Riau) ... Watch and draw conclusions (there are places .... spit nowhere recourse ) ..... what could a pilot do .....

    I wonder how the pilot will feel after this, and even if someone died?

    It’s interesting how long the scheduled maintenance took place on this Hawk 200, is the car not new at all?
    Condolences to all the families of the victims

      Cars, just new ones, a modernized version.
      Something went wrong either with the pilot or with the car. What else is there to say.

        The plane crashed into a densely populated area, and an Air Force spokesman confirmed:
        “We are still investigating the cause of the accident and the number of casualties,” said Air Force spokesman Fajar Adrianto

      Perhaps the plane was uncontrollable, any pilot at the level of instincts will turn away from the village.

      It’s also good for the Americans to know, this morning the American F-15 fell into the North Sea, they are still looking for a pilot.
