    The loss is not great, a new one will be built, or what a combat old one will be converted into a training one.

        Both crew members managed to eject and received minor injuries during landing.

        Parachute training is weak, however, both were injured, or is this show-off to create a heroic halo?

          Perhaps, flights at low altitudes were practiced ...
          Sorry for the plane, beautiful ...

            64 jumps. God had mercy on everyone I know too. Although before our eyes there were cases when almost everything, but or above, but rather skill (then in general there were PDSniki), even without injuries. Well, it happens and is lucky. Yes, there are a lot of cases and I know accidents :( We have 2 jumps a year obligatory, but I did more on adrenaline. During a break, the desire disappears from the word, of course, but obligatory. the comment above is just a thought out loud and does not pretend to be true.

              113 jumps, two injuries. Once, in a strong wind, I pulled my elbows off from dragging, and the second - both laughter and sin - fell into a hole of some beast and twisted my leg.

                Before my eyes, there was a serious case, one was 2 athletes converged and uncoupled about 30 meters, 40 above the ground, each hung on the main and spare parts, the rest of the emergency situations are mostly humorous, one of our cadets (well, very light hovered over the strip for 2 hours, the second shift was transferred by 2 times. :) Well, there were also cases, even seemingly serious, but the Lord made it so that everything ended with laughter. :))

        I will support the toast.

        Since people are alive, although they are enemies, I do not want to wish them death, but the minus of the technique of the probably "partner" is nice. therefore
        drinks

        By the way, have you noticed that a series of accidents always goes on in a chain? First with some, then followed by others.

        Why am I, here the British people on the forums laughed and gloated over the Russian dead and got ... an answer. Karma. Even without sacrifices, which is good in my opinion.

    Hmm.
    Both pilots are alive.
    Does not counterbalance the accident of the Tu-22M near Kaluga No.
