          Yes. It happens. In Vozdvizhenka in 1960 - 1961 (I don’t remember exactly) there was a similar case with the SU-7 (or SU-7B): the pilot ejected, and the plane landed safely somewhere in the airport area.

    It would seem a "trifle", but nice. yes
    If the pilot did not kill anyone, it is good that he remained alive.

      A catastrophe is when with victims, and so an accident or incident.

      By the way, if there are no casualties as a result of the LP (flight accident), but it (LP) cannot be classified as a “disaster”.

    Anything that happens is not news, and she does not need to rejoice. But I am ready to please here with this news
    Test firing from a 9A331MU combat vehicle on a caterpillar chassis from the Tor-M2U short-range anti-aircraft missile system successfully completed in the Astrakhan Region, Almaz-Antey air defense group said on Tuesday.
    To date, the shelling of targets from the air defense system "Tor" was carried out only with a short stop.
    Shooting on the move provides an important tactical advantage that allows those accompanying military columns of the Tor air defense missile systems to repel an enemy air raid on the move.
    "As part of the tests during the movement of the combat vehicle along the highway, the possibility of detecting and taking targets for auto tracking in motion, the quality and accuracy of tracking targets in motion, the impactless rocket exit from the container and a number of other parameters were also tested and confirmed," the press service of the CEO said concern Yana Novikova.
    The tests were carried out to determine the possibilities of hitting the target "Saman" missile complex in motion. When a combat vehicle was moving at a speed of more than 25 kilometers per hour along an unequipped steppe road, a target was discovered, taken for auto tracking and shot down at a distance of more than 8 kilometers.
    The Tor-M2U anti-aircraft missile system is designed to repel massive strikes of high-precision weapons in flight.

    Recently a list of military aircraft that crashed in Russia was published. And a lot of comments on the poor condition of the fleet and the low level of training of the flight and ground personnel. But it turns out planes are falling everywhere ... And all media have delicately stated the fact of the accident and no political conclusions! Strange pattern.

      Firstly, I don’t see something joy. Basically, the reaction is normal.
      Secondly, an ordinary case that can happen in any Air Force. Therefore, let’s say this - it’s good that the pilot is alive, and the rest is destiny.

    The pilot is alive and that’s good. But it’s not a pity for the piece of iron, if everyone falls, then they won’t be able to bomb anyone and there will be HAPPINESS to everyone!

    American pilots! - in case of danger or in case of a premonition of a Tokawa, for example: overloads over 2g, lack of surging in one of the engines, dusting of displays, altitude over 1000 meters, too much fuel remaining in the tank (over 75%), as well as bad mood , dissatisfaction with the small salary, the Ministry of Health recommends to immediately leave the aircraft by counseling in order to save your precious life.
