    At first, I was convinced that no one would be hurt on earth, and then he was already catapulted. Young man. Respect.

    The pilot is clearly a pro, which means most likely a technology failure.

      but the technique is really getting old
      it was this aircraft that was produced in the 83 year.

      Today’s Su-25 disaster is already the second in the Belarusian Air Force in the current decade. Previous occurred 12 June 2012 year in the Novogrudok region near the Neman military training ground. Then, unfortunately, unlike today's incident, there were some casualties: the pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Nikolai Gridnev, died as a result of the plane crash. The crashed plane belonged to the same 116th assault airbase.

      The Ministry of Defense of Belarus reported that on the 30 of September this year, during a scheduled flight during one of the exercises (flying in the zone) in the 11.50 area of ​​the day, the Su-25 aircraft of the 116 air assault base of our air force and air defense forces lost contingency management.

      Now experts are working on the site of the crashed attack aircraft. They have to figure out the reasons for what happened. In the meantime, all possible versions are considered. Fortunately, neither the pilot nor the people on earth were injured in this incident. An experienced pilot was able to prevent the tragedy. The plane crashed at the edge of the forest into a small pond. An emergency message about the crash of a military aircraft near Lida arrived around noon. The military department reported that the attack aircraft of the 116 air base made a scheduled flight.
      During the exercise, the pilot lost control, but was able to withdraw the 20-ton machine from the village and only making sure that the fall path is safe, catapulted. The pilot himself reported a crash at the base. From the air, the search and rescue team noticed the canopy of the parachute, the crater from the blow and smoke from the fire. All operational services arrived at the scene of the accident.
      Investigators said different versions of the crash were being considered, but it was too early to draw any conclusions. Therefore, official comments can still be called dry.
      “The Investigative Committee on this fact opened a criminal case under Article 465 of the first part of the Criminal Code - this is a violation of the flight rules and preparation for them. An investigation team of the main investigative department, representatives of the Ministry of Defense and the State Committee of forensic examinations work at the scene, ”said Oleg Shandarovich, head of the main investigative department of the Investigative Committee.
      Before sending the wreckage of the winged car for examination, they still have to get it: the impact on the ground was so strong that the attack aircraft a few meters went deep.
      The Su-25, nicknamed the Rook, is an all-weather armored attack aircraft. Designed to support ground forces on the battlefield. This type of aircraft is in service in many countries and has proven its reliability and striking power in many military conflicts.
      It is known that the flight of the Su-25 was planned. An experienced pilot was at the helm. At the time of the accident, the aircraft was 20 kilometers from the air base and 30 from the training ground. Now work continues at the crash site.

          So what kind of Air Force is there - we need to build all sorts of ice palaces, hold the 2014 World Championships, hold "holy veski - dazhynki", make new Belarusian goods for the warehouse. And the fact that physically worn-out Soviet-made aircraft fly here does not bother anyone. fool
