"The MiG-31 aircraft carried out a planned test flight after repair. The plane was piloted by experienced test pilots who had 2 hours of flight, in thousands of hours," the department said.

The Defense Ministry said: "During the flight, one of the engines failed. The crew brought the plane to a safe area and ejected." "The catapulted pilots were taken for examination at the military hospital of Vladivostok. Nothing threatens their health," the agency’s interlocutor added.

        Something you guys are today, Monday wink some .. "obsessive" wassat Or the weekend passed .. "not according to plan" wassat

        "Xsperdy", by the way, they write such .. "news" fool

        Firstly, 322 ARZs, not 3022.
        Secondly, he is in Knevichi, and not in Vozdvizhenka soldier

        And if in essence, then the "reason" ... voiced in the article ... is a hat, because:

        After the Repair (specifically you need to know which Capital or Restoration) or Discussion (Periodic or Replacement of components and assemblies) the aircraft always performs 1 or 2 flights, Test or Control (on map No. 1 and No. 2)
        The program of flight (flyby) necessarily includes a stage-shutdown of the engine in flight, with subsequent launch.
        I will not write about how this is done and how many cold scrolls need to be done and what actions with electrical equipment.
        In my time, I also practiced starting the engine from autorotation speed, as I don’t know now, because. All test crews at Aircraft Repair Plant-REDUCED.
        Those. There are LIS, but there are no pilots, now they are inviting either from the Plane-building factories, or from the Regiments (the level of the castle is higher). Or with the pulp and paper center.
        But what happened after the start of the attempt to start the engine ... here the reasons may be SEA-starting from the fuel automation and the failure of the "body kit" of the motor, up to the destruction of compressor stages, failure of ACS, power system, etc. etc.
        In principle, the case is ordinary, although not pleasant, but Iron is IRON !!!
        I will not tell you about the case of the fall of completely new aircraft at various stages of flight testing - there are many of them.
        The most important thing is that the pilots are alive, which once again proves that Severin Design Bureau seats are the best catapults in the world !!! soldier
        And the cause of this accident will be precisely the consequences, after trying to start the aircraft engine, which led to this outcome!

        Entering this aircraft with one engine running (the second is "removed" to MG modes) is an ordinary stage in the training of a fighter pilot according to KBP IA! soldier and it requires only increased attention and compliance with speed limits when flying in a circle and approach! soldier

      Denis Scream grief - "experts"
      To many, he throat


      -Who will yell? to whom and what across the throat?

      They yelled yesterday about the order from NVO (the same order was recently there in the case of the German camps) about the non-existent Cossack, the price taken from the ceiling at the UDC, and other lies - and what we heard -give all the enemies a tower!

      But is everything normal here? Don’t have to give the tower? - who took the plane, military acceptance, directors, managers who carried out repairs - everything is okay here

      -the problem is that there are very few specialists at the enterprises, the salary is small, the equipment is old, the materials being purchased are of poor quality, the military acceptance does not exercise control, but the directors and managers are feeling chocolate

      these must be dealt with, with the quality of work performed, control and subsequent responsibility

        At least to various non-traditional and their owners
        The development and adoption of strategic cruise missiles in the United States put on the agenda the question of creating a successor to the Tu-128 aircraft in the USSR - a barrage interceptor capable of fighting a new threat. The concept, in accordance with which the design of the interceptor was conducted, was largely unprecedented for Soviet aviation. The emphasis was on autonomous execution of a combat mission, while all previous interceptors of the Soviet Air Force worked closely with ground-based guidance points, until the interception was carried out in fully automatic mode on commands from the CP. A promising aircraft was created, first of all, to cover the territory of the USSR from a strike by cruise missiles from the Arcticwhere there was no continuous radar field. Research as part of the development of a heavy barrage interceptor capable of detecting and hitting targets against the background of the earth’s surface in the altitude range from 100 m to 30 km began in the Mikoyan Design Bureau in the middle of the 60's

    Something often began to fall aircraft after repair at aircraft repair plants.
    Remember, in Kazakhstan on April 23, 2012, the MIG-31 crashed due to an unchecked nut at an aircraft repair plant.
    And again MIG-31, now engine failure after the aircraft repair plant.
    Yes, the trend is not good.

    Yes, he crashed because he did not fly for a long time, the plane was not of the first freshness, most likely, but in general, they began to fly on them, in order to revive the Contact complex, shoot down satellites. Right?

    During the flight, one of the engines failed.

    Here is another confirmation of education reform. Practice without theory is blind, we have all education built on the solution of tests. If there is no answer, then there is no solution to the problem. Weaned their mind to think, and to predict conclusions is an incomprehensible task. They do something and don’t understand what. Military acceptance is also of great importance, the specialists of which were considered superfluous in production. Well, gentlemen, effective managers, as they say, the result is expected.

      In May 1981, during the test of the MiG-31, the pilot Menitsky and the navigator-operator Ryndin managed to land the plane on the ground with the engines turned off.
      28.02.2001/31/XNUMX Lieutenant Colonel Satanovsky and Major Ovchenkov successfully planted the MiG-XNUMX with the right engine turned off and burning.
      08.02.2013/31/XNUMX MiG-XNUMXBM of the Perm air group "Sokol" successfully landed at the Bolshoye Savino airfield in Perm on one engine.
      In fact, similar situations are regularly worked out in the classroom, pilots make training landings on one engine several times a year.

    the plane crashed after repairs, and Kazakhstani also crashed after repairs. It means that something is happening at the plants. I’ll think of all this due to a lack of specialists. It’s impossible to explain otherwise.
    Given the fact that the MIG-31 is not produced, we can say so. In the Russian Air Force, one MIG-31 has become less.

    Not surprisingly, the service life is already extended more than once! The technology also has its own time. The aircraft is without a doubt, excellent, but it's time to think about updating, to a completely new design! The long-range interceptor is a promising type of aviation, with our territories, it has exceptional importance and constantly upgrade old equipment will come out more expensive.
