      Since the days of Gagarin it has been commanded (1968.03.27).
      Flyers deserved fighting "ridiculously."

      Sergey, it shouldn’t be particularly surprising. Especially when it comes to the life of a person whose profession is associated with increased danger. Remember Gagarin. The same, according to one version, fell into turbulence ...

      According to the first information, the reason was a sudden gust of wind. And, considering that it’s two local, easy, it’s quite possible.
      And so - God rest the souls of the dead. condolences to family and friends ...

    Yes, it’s like a finger of fate - a person can go all his life near death and die in a banal plane crash.
    My condolences to the families of the victims.

    Specialists called the preliminary reason for the crash of the AI-10 “Icarus” in the suburbs: the passenger’s leg was stuck between the duplicate pedals of the aircraft. This became apparent at the moment when the bodies were removed from the charred fragments of the aircraft.
    A light-engine plane crashed about one o'clock in a kilometer from the Shevlino airfield. At the helm of "Icarus" was a 4-year-old guard retired Lt. Col. Sergei Vasiliev, former deputy commander of the Swifts aerobatic team.
    His passenger, 48-year-old Valery Bugaev, according to some reports, was also a pilot at one time. The plane went into a tailspin, possibly due to a gust of wind, but Vasiliev probably could not level it precisely because the passenger’s foot got between the pedals and jammed them, experts say.

    TTX AI-10:
    Engine power Rotax 912ULS 100 hp
    Take-off distance 80 m
    Flight range ~ 700 km
    Cruising speed 160 km / h
    Top speed 240 km / h
    Ceiling 4000 m

    It’s always a pity for the dead. But for a pilot, it’s better than from old age in bed, IMHO. Only early, Lieutenant Colonel, is this about 50?

    Eh hehe! Once again, I am convinced that upon retirement it is better not to tempt fate once again.

      You tell the pilots that summer cottage, wife, grandchildren, fishing. A real pilot always flies and at every opportunity. Especially for the extra denyuzhku to retirement.

    I imagine I didn’t even have time to blink, well, what kind of an airplane is it, which has the opportunity to hit the legs between the pedals. In 1966 took off from the Mi-1 parking lot and fell on its side. It cost a pilot and a cadet jumped out of the cockpit, the helicopter burned out in 10 minutes. It turned out that between the cadet’s seat and the control stick there was a tensiometer, which jammed the control of the machine. The technician who checked the tension of the control cables turned out to be to blame. Nevertheless, it is necessary to design and manufacture aircraft with the expectation of a fool. Eternal memory to the guys.

    The case is idiotic! More ridiculous can only be artificially invented. Not a car, a large model aircraft, and a combat PILOT dies on it!
