Another August crash in the Russian aviation: the fall of the MiG-29 near the Ashuluk test site is confirmed

A series of August plane crashes continued with the fall of a MiG-29 fighter in the Astrakhan region. Late in the evening the day before, the first reports began to appear that the combat aircraft crashed during a training flight in the area of ​​the Ashuluk training ground.

The press service of the Southern Military District says that the plane crashed in a deserted place. At the same time, the data on the death of the pilot were confirmed.

To establish the causes of the plane crash with the MiG-29, a special commission was created, which included representatives of the High Command of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Details about whether the death of the pilot occurred during the ejection attempt or already during the collision of the fighter with the ground has not yet been provided.

This is the third plane crash with Russian military aircraft in the past few days. Earlier, the plane of the Ministry of Defense Be-200, extinguishing fires in Turkey, crashed into a mountain in the southeast of this country, the crew of the car was killed. A prototype of the Il-112V military transport aircraft fell in the Moscow region - the plane fell due to a malfunction of one of the engines. The pilots took the multi-ton car away from residential buildings. None of the three crew members survived.

At the moment, experts have expressed various views on the plane crash in the Astrakhan region. Among other things, a version is traditionally expressed about a possible failure of the equipment of the MiG-29 fighter. Other versions are not excluded, including a possible error in piloting.

        There is no need to whip up this superstitious nonsense about August. The result is a "self-fulfilling prophecy": people talk about "terrible August", then they get nervous, they make mistakes from their nerves, mistakes lead to catastrophes, and now there is a reason to talk about some kind of "curse."
        Let me remind you that the biggest disaster in the history of Russia happened in June The 41th ...

        Let's not croak. I'm talking about August. There will be no more disasters this month. As a prophetic Oleg, I tell you this. I did not know that MiG-29s still fly, except for ships. Low height again? The ejection seat is good there, in Le Bourget the pilots survived after the collision. A military aviator (not just a pilot) is an honor. Get fewer civilians, risk more.

      The reason is simple: they began to fly more, therefore they began to fall more. Be-200 - extinguished fires. IL-112 - still raw, was being tested. Mi-8 - carried tourists. MiG-29 and Su-35 - military, which always fall more often than civilians. All over the world, a common thing, alas. And the Americans are fighting no less.

        19 August 2021 07: 44
        And the Americans are fighting no less.


        Much more simply because of the difference in quantitative composition. From 2013 to 2020, the U.S. Air Force lost 224 aircraft and 186 pilots in non-combat situations. In RF:

        In total, over the past 4 years (2016-2019), the Aerospace Forces in the Russian Federation itself have lost 57 combat and transport aircraft due to accidents along with this Su-16: 1 Su-57, 3 MiG-31 fighters, 1 MiG-29 fighter, 2 combat trainer aircraft Yak-130, 1 trainer aircraft L-39, 3 attack aircraft Su-25, 1 strategic bomber Tu-22M3, 2 bombers Su-34 (in one accident), 1 fighter aircraft Su-27, 1 transport An-26 ...

        The strategic bomber Tu-22M3 and the transport Il-18 were badly damaged. In Sochi, a Tu-154 plane of the Russian Defense Ministry crashed into the water.

        Well, for example, American passenger airliners practically do not fight at all. While we have a rare year that goes by without disasters.

        And for military aircraft - it would be interesting to see the calculation in relation to the number of accidents to flight hours in hours. True, it is not a fact that such data is in the public domain. But I suspect that in this case, too, the comparison will not be in our favor.

          So Americans don't fly on old stuff either. And the aviation industry was not in their enclosure. From the very first flight of the Wright brothers, aviation in the United States only DEVELOPED. And here it was destroyed, twice in the 20th century, and we had to recreate it.

            An interesting statement, if we recall the losses of the Su-57, Su-35, Su-30, Su-34, and here is the recent Il-112. And take into account that very often the age of the technology has nothing to do with it. The pilots stick planes into the sea, into the mountains, into the runways, into each other, and are ejected from serviceable planes. Or the cannons in a mock battle are suddenly loaded. Or, in a two-engine aircraft, both engines fail at the same time (this is not in the army, this is about the recent An-28). No, it's not old stuff, it's a mess.

            I confirm about natural influences. A couple of years ago there was a case with me. I left work in the evening, felt great, on the way home I drove into the store, already in the store I felt wrong and decided to go home faster, and on the outskirts of the city there was a sluggish traffic jam !! Head like a steel hoop with nails pulled together! The further I go, the worse, it has already darkened in my eyes and there is no place to turn at all for kilometers (we are cattle for the city administrations, which should be on the road like in a corral!). So this was the only day when no one overtook anyone at all, and one SUV turned off the road right into small bushes, apparently it was just as bad as I was. We drove about 5 kilometers and everything started to go by itself. I came home healthy. What was that ?! I started browsing the Internet at home, but it turns out that there was a strong flash in the sun!

      - Why aren't the pilots ejected ??? - Why then catapults in general ???
      - No, well, it's just darkness ... - the plane will crash anyway ... - so it is necessary that the pilot also perishes !!!
      - And then ... - this hackneyed "Eternal Memory" and so on ... - This already sounds just blasphemous !!!
      - Who needs such an "Eternal Memory" ...
      - Pilots that ... - are they afraid to eject ??? - They are afraid of "consequences" from their command; if he catapults and stays alive ??? - So, or what ??? - Most likely the way it is !!!
      - And what are these "training flights" that are constantly "not far from settlements" ??? - Russia has such a gigantic territory that you cannot utter ... - And nevertheless, the same thing is always the same ... - residential areas and clusters of civil buildings and people are constantly nearby ...
      - Already completely got this "song":
      - "And the city thought that the exercises were underway." ..

      - The pilots tried to take the falling plane away from houses and residential buildings as far as possible ...

      - Damn, well, then equip aircraft for training flights with explosive devices to destroy the aircraft itself, which will go off after the pilot is ejected ...
      - Damn, we live in the 21st century ... - and a mechanical device continues to be valued more than a human life ...
      - And it must be the same ... - came up with an "excuse" ... - "Eternal memory"; "Earth to him (them) in peace" and that's it !!! ...
      - Yes, this is so, and without you ... - there is someone to tell ... - This is the family and friends will say and the children of the dead will say ...
      - How long can this "heroism" last ??? - Who needs it ??? - We need professionalism !!!
      - Crap ; it is "good" even though there are no aircraft carriers in Russia ... - Otherwise, the losses would have been many times greater ...
      - In Russia so soon, there will be no more experienced pilots - neither military nor civilian ...
      - It's time to invest all funds in the UAV ... - at least you can always replace them ... - But a deceased person - nothing can replace ...

              It shouldn't, it’s like words. In fact, pilots, they live in two environments. They think differently. And not only everyone can become a pilot, but only a real pilot, just a few.

        It seems that de Gaulle said that there are no irreplaceable people and to be convinced of this it is enough to visit the cemetery.
        The pilot did not eject because he did not have time. And the question why there was a lack of time should be answered by the commission to investigate the causes of the accident.

      Can anyone explain to journalists that the Il-112 was on a landing course, where are they being taken away from residential buildings?

      Rarely does a week go by without our plane or helicopter or, at worst, some kind of watercraft crashed or severely damaged. The obsolescence of the funds is superimposed on the often low culture of exploitation and the growing documentary formalism - and this is the result ... but this is in peacetime.

      In the early 1980s, in just one flight day just after the May holidays, the USSR Air Force lost eight or nine aircraft. P.S. Kutakhov addressed the personnel with a telegram, which allegedly began as follows: "Sons ..."

      Quote: A. h.52
      And this is a burp of the Soviet era. The plane is everything, the pilot is nothing. In any emergency, the first thing a Russian pilot thinks about is how to "save the car." Well, he dies at the same time. And it should be like in the USA. The plane is iron, the pilot is the highest value.
      Right to the point! SCOOP. Some damn symbolism above all else. Who knows what happened to an ordinary member of the party, the foreman, when the ticket of a member of the CPSU was lost? And what happened if a responsible party worker, the secretary of the district committee, allowed such a thing. HORROR! Yes, these guys kept it in a safe and once a month they took it out with trembling hands to mark the payment of contributions. And in the same USA and England some kind of Tories, although the Secretary General thought about it ten times? I am generally silent about the loss of personal weapons (look at the mountains left by the Americans in Afghanistan).
      From the naval communications regiment in Kaliningrad, the Ural-kungs were expelled for loading onto ships in Baltiysk. I came across a boy driver (yesterday from DOSAAF, I saw only GAZ-51) The standard was tough

        (Something knocked out) the standard was 20 minutes to leave the park (the time of arrival of cruise missiles from Germany). I see we won't even start with this guy. I get behind the wheel myself, I look at the checkpoint on the floor of the DKBF headquarters and both doors of the car in front are open, they are recording something. I put the guy behind the wheel (he will pass the gate somehow), and in the dark I slip behind the car and quietly stomp through the pedestrian checkpoint. Passed through and got cold - both machine guns were strapped at the right door of the cab while standing! I think the Ural cabin was ready to melt, while I was standing outside the gate, staring at it, without blinking - and it stands and stands - well, forever straight. I got under way, grab the door-fu ... my AK is in place
        broke off, I did not understand.
