      It is possible that the Turks are also, and kerosene to the left is business request And they forgot to warn the Kurds.
      From an anecdote: Note "Masha, do not dilute the sour cream. I have already poured kefir into it."

    The main thing is that the cadet and the instructor are alive. And the plane can be replaced.

    Looks like an outbreak of airplane flu. We urgently need to kill all Turkish aircraft in order to avoid the spread of the infection.

    If this is not a failure of technology, then the level of training of pilots raises very strong doubts.

      On March 25, 2020, two planes, Su 27 and L39, crashed, and the pilot was never found after drying. No one is safe from disaster!
