In the West of Syria, the MiG-21 fighter of the air forces of the SAR was wrecked. According to Syrian sources, the plane crashed a few seconds after taking off in the province of Hama. The pilot of the MiG-21 died. According to unconfirmed reports, the cause of the accident was technical problems that arose on board the Syrian Air Force fighter.


In Syria, the MiG-21 air force fighter ATS crashed. The pilot died


In the fall, the fighter collided with a hill in close proximity to a military airfield, destroying stone fences on the territory of a military facility. Attention is drawn to the fact that literally in 30 m from the crash site is a densely populated residential area. The Syrian official sources of civilian casualties are not reported.



The crash site of the MiG-21 Air Force ATS is cordoned off by police and military personnel. Work is underway to collect the wreckage of the aircraft to make an accurate picture of the reasons for the fall of the fighter. It is noted that the plane was lifted into the air without rocket-bomb armament.

For reference: MiG-21 is a Soviet supersonic lightweight fighter belonging to the 3 generation. The start of operation of such aircraft belongs to the 1959-1960's. Already within the framework of the MiG-21 program, 4 generations of this type of fighter are implemented. Over the years, more than 11 thousands of MiG-21 airplanes of various modifications have been produced.

    Sorry for the pilot! I was there on a visit (Thanks to e.vre.ya with "VO"), MIGs are technically a karachun, as they still fly. This is some kind of garage with mechanics in an alley. Themselves brew kerosene dogs .. And not only, they survive as We do in the 2nd world war.

      Experienced fighters are worth their weight in gold, it’s a pity, but the equipment most likely has developed its resource more than once.

        Very sorry for the Syrian pilot!
        Our sincere condolences to his family, friends and relatives, as well as his fighting friends and comrades!
        Hurry, a long-awaited peace would come in the SAR, and the exhausted country would finally begin to grow economically rich and revive nationally!

    Yes, this plane has already worked out fifty of its resources, and the Syrian pilots are real heroes and aces, who are still able to fly on such old planes and perform the tasks of disposing of barmalei.
    The blessed memory of the deceased pilot and sympathy for the family and the entire Syrian people ...

      The North Koreans still have the 17th and 19th MiGs flying. I don’t know how in Syria and in Guinea I saw how Aboriginal people exploit aircraft. All NIAS and regulations are on the side. I started the engine and forward. In front of my eyes, the Mi-8 took off, scored 10 meters and collapsed. It turns out at night, someone from the guard drained kerosene from him and took him home. And the pilot (a black woman with an awesome ass) did not even bother to look at the fuel gauge. There were no casualties.

      The MiG-27 is still there, but due to improper "storage" all of them are no longer suitable for flights and are cut into metal.

    The Marine has died yet.
    MOSCOW, 19 Jun - RIA News. Andrei Timoshenkov, a serviceman of the humanitarian convoy of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, died, having prevented the car from breaking through with explosives to the point of delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians in the province of Homs, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    "Sergeant Timoshenkov Andrei Leonidovich stopped a car filled with explosives, opening fire on it from small arms. In the explosion of a car driven by a suicide bomber, Andrei himself received an injury incompatible with life," the message says.

    Here is the most likely video of his death (in the gerbil, with PPE and helmet):

      How do you answer?
      Reliability at 21 is already zero, by the way you have not a bad overhaul for the tweaks did. By judging the flag.
      Kiev engineering and Kharkov were not bad specialists released.
      Ayda is the EAEU before us, although I know that there are a lot of scumbags, a jamb of Donbas and Lugansk and Crimea.
      I just can’t imagine Ukraine in the EAEU at the moment.
      Kazakhstan will get visa-free visa with the EU faster than Ukraine, now I have half a year now, this is due to the fact that I have relatives in Germany smile and did not mow laughing

    Something strange is the Syrian army. Pilots who are well aware of the state of technology like kamikaze often try to compensate for caveman non-professionalism on earth. And on the ground, infantry often negates the results of pilots. Not all, of course, but the fact is clear - who ran to the Turks, who to the American coalition, who to ISIS, and who toppled to Europe to wait for the moment when everything will resolve itself.
    Recently, I have been more and more inclined to the idea of ​​dividing Syria according to interests. Although initially I didn't want it. Even if Assad succeeds in clearing the entire territory of the country (and even if Russia comes out on his side in the ground operation, which, in my opinion, is fundamentally wrong), it is not realistic to keep her by the army, militia and security forces. For the authority of Assad is no longer enough for the population to rally under his leadership.

    How do they still fly on this? Therefore, such disasters are natural, due to the extreme deterioration of equipment. And the other is not! Only the extreme fatalism of the Syrian pilots can be explained by the fact that they agree to fly on this.

    I’m thinking of why not give our Syrians a couple dozen SU25. On storage bases, they are even quite there. Podshamanit, and quite a roll of barmaley’s apparatus. For any newer aircraft and resource and technology. Much preferable in comparison with Mig21 for ground attacks NURS and FABs. He will not die from us; he will do anything for a good cause.

    They will screw up these two dozen in one day! I was in the factory, warranty team providing warranty service and repair of Mi-14 helicopters; Mi-25; Ka-28 ... I remember how they (the airfield guard) shot with a smile, and in fact KILLED a woman with two children. To my question WHY ??? !!! I received an answer from the translator (the translator was a Syrian): - we must do this! If we do not kill these children, they will kill us and our children, they will avenge the death of their parents. I believe that we should not "rip our butts out to support the" Syrian people.

Assad’s fall, it was not death that was eaten, it was a very serious illness for Gazprom, but as a consequence for Russia. It is not cynical, but the war is for money and resources. Yes, in fact, like all wars.
