162

An emergency with a long-range Tu-22M3 bomber happened at a military airfield near Kaluga, as a result, three soldiers were killed. It is reported by TASS with reference to the source in power structures.

At the moment, information coming from various sources differs. According to one version, the bomber crashed during landing, according to another, catapults were triggered when the engines of the Tu-22M3 standing on the ground were started, which, in turn, led to the death of three military pilots, including the regiment commander.

Catapults were triggered on the ground when the engines were started. Three people were killed, including the regiment commander, who was sitting in the instructor's place

- the agency leads the words of the source.

Previously announced information that the plane crashed during landing was not confirmed, the Tu-22M3 was just preparing to take off.

The Ministry of Defense confirmed the death of three crew members of the Tu-22M3 long-range bomber.

On March 23, during the planned preparation on the ground for the Tu-22M3 flight, an abnormal operation of the ejection system occurred at an airfield in the Kaluga region. Due to insufficient height for the deployment of parachutes, three crew members received injuries incompatible with life upon landing

- it is spoken in the message of military department.

A special commission of the Russian Aerospace Forces has been sent to the airfield, which will investigate all the circumstances of the incident.

              AVIAINCIDENT, [23.03.21 17:13]
              SHAIKOVKA. TU22M3 - PRELIMINARY REPORT.

              The composition of the crew, mainly the bosses:
              The commander of the ship is the deputy commander of the air squadron, Major;
              pilot-instructor regiment commander Colonel;
              navigator of the ship; navigator of the regiment, Major;
              navigator-instructor navigator-inspector 00 PPI and PLC Lieutenant Colonel.

              In preparation for the exercise flight, after launching the APU and working with the cockpit equipment, the commander of the ship, who is the deputy squadron commander, switched on all machine guns on the AZR panel with the lever of the packet switch. At the same time, the system of forced departure of the crew was triggered according to the standard scheme (the commander of the ship leaves the plane on his own).

              When the forced exit system was triggered, four lantern covers were dropped and three crew members were ejected. The mechanisms of the ejection seats worked normally, the separation of the crew members and the launching of the rescue parachutes took place normally, but due to the lack of conditions for safely leaving the aircraft (speed less than 130 km / h), the canopies of the parachutes were not filled.

              Three crew members were killed when they fell onto the concrete surface of the aircraft parking lot at high vertical speed. Chairs KT-1M.

              KT-1M is an ejection seat developed by the Tupolev Design Bureau. Currently installed on Tu-22M3 and Tu-22MR aircraft. The abbreviation KT-1M means "Tupolev's first modified armchair".

              Each member of the Tu-22M crew is equipped with a KT-1M ejection seat with a PS-T three-stage parachute system mounted in the seat.

              Ejection is carried out upward, facing the stream, face protection is carried out by a GSH-6A pressurized helmet, which is part of the BMCK-2M protective suit, adopted as standard equipment for the crew, or a ZSH-3 protective helmet (in the latter case, the crew is dressed in standard flight uniforms for the season , additionally put on a rescue harness of the ASP-74 type).

              Ejection is carried out in the following sequence: operator, navigator, right pilot, ship commander. Both individual and forced ejection are provided.

              Forced ejection of the crew is performed by the commander, for which it is enough to lift the cap and turn on the “Forced exit” toggle switch on the left side of the cockpit.

              At the same time, a red banner "Forced leaving" lights up at each workplace and the EMRV-27B-1 time relay for the seats of the right pilot, navigator-navigator and navigator-operator, which are set for a time corresponding to 3,6 s, 1,8 s , 0,3 s.

              After 0,3 s, the time relays trigger the EK-69 pneumatic system electrovalve on the navigator-operator's seat, while the “Manufacturing” system is triggered on the seat (triggering the arms and legs scatter limiters and tightening the seat belts) and pressing the limit switch for resetting the lantern cover.

              When the "Manufacturing" system is triggered, the ACh-1,2 temporary automatic machine is activated on the chair, which after 1 s pulls out the combat pin of the firing mechanism.

          Tu-22M3 entered service in 1978 and was produced until 1993. I don’t know what kind of catapults were on this aircraft, but for many years Aviation has used catapults that provide normal opening of the parachute when it is triggered, starting from zero altitude, and zero speed and ending with supersonic speeds.
          For example, K-36DM (installed on MiG-29, Su-24, Su-27, Su-30, Su-34, Tu-160, etc.):
          • Safety of leaving the aircraft in case of an accident in the altitude range - 0 ... 20 km
          • The ejection seat provides rescue of a crew member in the speed range 0 ... 1300 km / h, M numbers up to 2.5, including take-off, after-landing run. [2]

          The article did not write that the fourth crew member survived and was hospitalized. That is, it catapulted all four.

                I also don’t know for sure either the procedure for preparing for the flight, or the model of the seats. Chairs of the previous generation Km-1M like (I'm getting old) with H = 0 V = 100 there were limitations, cases of ejection from a parking lot happened and worked from zero. Well, it's all lyrics, here it seems they were not fastened. Our technician pulled out checks only before closing the lantern, already before taxiing out. As they do not know ...

              This is complete nonsense .., people write in general .. not competent in this matter.
              Since when entering the cockpit, the first thing to do is get a pillow from under the priests (so as not to get the cup with NAZ dirty when getting into the chair and exiting the cockpit), then the technician helps you to get into the hanging one and put on the shoulder straps ... you fully fasten (checkpoint , KM, GSH hoses) and only after that the technician pulls out the tourniquet with safety checks and gives them to you and you signal to him that you can close the lantern ... and so for each crew member ... but only then ... a report on the readiness of all crew members ..... reading the "prayer" before launching and .... the launch itself.
              No other way.
              The only thing when they did not wear it on the "race" of the engines.

        The RF Ministry of Defense confirmed. Condolences to the families of the victims.
        The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation confirmed the death of three people as a result of an emergency with a long-range Tu-22M bomber in the Kaluga region. This was announced on Tuesday, March 23rd, the press service of the department reported.

        According to the ministry, during the planned preparation of the aircraft for flight, an abnormal operation of the ejection system occurred.

        “Due to the insufficient height to deploy the parachutes, three crew members received injuries incompatible with life upon landing,” the department stressed.

        At the moment, a commission of the Russian Aerospace Forces has left the airfield to conduct a technical survey of the aircraft and establish the causes of the incident.

      engine start and catapult are NOT connected in ANY way
      The igniters are checked / installed before departure, which means a mess in the engineering service or ???, And was there a "shooting" of the cockpit cap?

      Sorry for the crew, an absurd tragedy. But sabotage here does not smell, this is carelessness! The ejection seat will NEVER operate on its own. Either the terms of routine maintenance and scheduled checks were violated, or they were performed with violations, or an error of personnel (or flight or technical) when landing in the cockpit and removing the set of fuses from the ejection seats. I see no other reason. My condolences to family and friends ...

        Before takeoff, all checks from the seats must be removed, but who after that who could pull the ejection handles is not clear and it is not known whether the lantern flaps fired back or not?

            Some inaccuracy in the information is hidden here, since theoretically the chair provides "work" with the parameters 0/0 in the gp mode. and on the ground at a speed of at least 130 km / h (discharge of the cab lights).

          Here, the escape system works on a different principle ... you at least pull the ejection levers ... nothing will happen ... because before that you have to manually reset the flashlight (1 I block the KSMT is removed) (with only an external grip) otherwise you will remain without a forearm (arm spread limiter .. will beat).
          And if individually .. then the one who pulled the levers jumps .. and here the third jumped, then the problem is in the forced ejection system.

    Is it possible for catapults to fire automatically? And why is this done, in case the pilots unconscious will throw them out automatically?

      Is it possible for catapults to fire automatically? And why is this done, in case the pilots unconscious will throw them out automatically?

      This type of aircraft is equipped with KT-1M, there is no automatic triggering, there is a forced ejection of the crew, performed by the commander, and it is enough to lift the cap and turn on the "Forced exit" toggle switch on the left side of the cockpit. At the same time, a red banner "Forced leaving" lights up at each workplace and the EMRV-27B-1 temporary relay for the seats of the right pilot, navigator-navigator and navigator-operator, which are set for a time corresponding to 3,6 s, 1,8 s , 0,3 s ..
      For individual leaving, each seat has two “get-off” side handles. To operate the system, it is enough to squeeze and press any of the handles. In case of leaving a de-energized aircraft, only individual ejection is possible with preliminary manual reset of the access hatch covers (until the hatch “leaves”, the seat firing mechanism remains blocked). All autonomous aircraft seat automation operates on pneumatic, pyrotechnic and mechanical automation.
      Ejection is possible during a takeoff run or a run on the ground, at a speed of at least 130 km / h (to guarantee the breakdown of entrance hatches by an oncoming air flow), in flight at a speed up to the maximum possible (2200 km / h) and a dynamic ceiling (18 km).
      Condolences to family and friends!

        It turns out that in order to eject from the ground, they had to get up and manually open the hatch (each has its own) and only then sit in a chair and eject? How could they all accidentally catapult so all at once?

          Each crew member does not have his own lever for resetting the lantern cover (right at face level, when turning 90g).

          They just could not ... an error in the forced abandonment system ... therefore, the crew member on the K.K. mesma remained intact and do not harm.

        So the one who was sitting on the left, in the commander's place, could theoretically accidentally turn on the toggle switch, which led to the sequential ejection of the crew. The human factor in most accidents and disasters remains in the first place.

        The sash should shoot back automatically, and by the oncoming stream it is carried away to the side for safe escape of the crew member.

              Yes I know! I tried to find a photo of the chair in the TU22m3 cockpit, but I couldn't find it.
              There were suggestions in the media that 3 crew members might not have been "fastened" during the system's operation. Hence 1 surviving crew member. In general, there are many assumptions, but one truth, and perhaps we will not recognize it.

    Actually, some kind of awkwardness comes out! Catapults, I remember the film on "Zvezda" were ground tests and on static, that is, stationary aircraft! There is a version that the fanar did not shoot back during the self-launching of the catapults, then people died from a strong blow to the fanar with their heads, and they were thrown out already dead? ??

        The commander pulls out the locked protective cap! Then the forced ejection toggle switch rises.
        After turning on the toggle switch, the boards of the crew members turn on. With an inscription about coercion. Covers and hatches are dropped. And with an EMNIT interval of 1.2 seconds, the Navigator operator, the navigator of the ship and the Pravak leave. The commander works himself out with his pens.
        Only this whole process is possible from zero altitude at a speed of 130+ km per hour.
        So if in the parking lot there is no chance. And they were not ready for this all over the place.

            They shoot back but not normally. Although as God puts it on life.
            The system guarantees rescue at a speed of 130+. And they were parked at launch. Lanterns and hatches fell off and did not fly off.

    The system allows ejection from the ground, even at zero speed.
    In 1987, in Bykhov, the pilots left the plane from the ground, pravak practically
    after stopping the plane. Both - even without injury.
    What happened in this case will be determined by the commission, but it is similar to the actuation of the forced exit system, which is turned on by the commander of the ship - fold back the cap, turn it on.

              But when, back in the distant past, they "studied" the instructions for these chairs and this ... "cascade parachute system" in the distant past, the "leader" said that, in general, the ideal height for using this system is 250 meters in the gp mode, and even better in the set mode H and preferably without rolls (well, you can) jo 40gr .... more ... no need .... there will be a mouthful of earth.

      Of course, when I was young, I may not remember everything, but then in Bykhov Tu-22M2 rolled out of the runway. It was winter, the racks were broken, he drove through the snow on his "belly". The crew left the plane through the hatches after stopping, and only the young "pravochok" could not resist and ejected. And in my opinion he broke either his leg or his collarbone ...
      But maybe I don't remember all the details.

      And before that there was an accident with the Tu-22M2 with the ejection of one of the crew members from the plane already burning on the ground. Alas, everyone died there. The ejected pilot fell into the hotbed of the spilled fuel.

I was surprised when the secret equipment was removed from the presidential plane and taken out, and now the pilots were killed and not on a mission but due to the usual negligence of the attendants !!! And this happens not only in aviation --- look what is done during the repair and maintenance of ships !!! The ship's crew sells the ship's propellers for scrap !!! The money allocated for the repair of ships is being stolen !!! Corruption in the army is booming and the minister of defense is chilling out on vacation !!!

    We had a similar case in 1985. I then finished my naval career and got a job at an aircraft factory in Artem. Have rolled into the shop for repair of the next TU-16. The first thing that the LIS (flight test service) does is, while still at the airfield, unloads the catapult squibs in the plane. In this case, something unprecedented in the history of the plant happened: the squibs remained in place ... Why, I am not in the know - the investigation was closed and did not concern me ... The specialist who was engaged in the dismantling of radio equipment in the cockpit, at some point sat down in the commander's the chair, and for some unknown reason, began to touch the handles that were not related to its profile ... The controls, which are strictly forbidden to be touched by anyone, are painted bright red. The catapult handles are also red. And after all, he knew about this and signed, as usual, in the work order, where the first security point clearly indicated this ... He pulled, the catapult fired, the chair with it broke through the roof of the workshop and fell next to the concrete road. On the TU-16, the armored back (35 mm steel) is a quarter meter higher than the rider's head ... The culprit of the non-standard flight died in the hospital.
