Tu-22M3 bomber got into the field due to engine failure

On December 17, 2019, a Soviet / Russian long-range supersonic missile bomber with a variable sweep wing Tu-22M3 made an emergency landing on the ground in the Astrakhan region after the failure of one of the engines. The Russian Ministry of Defense emphasized that the flight was planned and went without ammunition, and the crew correctly took the plane away from the village.

On December 17, 2019, in the Astrakhan region, during a scheduled flight on a Tu-22 aircraft, an engine failure occurred. Thanks to the competent actions of the crew, it was possible to take the car with the failed engine from the village and land on the ground

- reported from the press service of the Russian military.

It is specified that the pilots were not injured. There are no destructions and victims on the earth either. The crew, after landing, independently left the plane and is already at the base airfield. The command seeks the submission of pilots for state awards.

It must be recalled that the Tu-22M3 was adopted by the USSR Air Force in 1989. Serially produced until 1993. Russia has more than 60 such aircraft in service.

In addition, it should be recalled that in August 2018, the general director of the Tupolev company Alexander Konyukhov announced that under the contract with the Ministry of Defense in 2019, a deep modernization of the Tu-22M3 fleet would begin. At the same time, UAC President Yuri Slyusar said that the deeply modernized Tu-22M3M aircraft will begin to enter the army in 2021.

In January 2019, we Reportedhow the Tu-22M3 crashed in the Murmansk region.

        Pilots are alive. And why is it impossible to inquire about the state of the aircraft?

    Suspicious silence about the technical condition of the airplane, probably it is no longer technical, but a bunch of color, which cannot be restored. He has exactly about 200 km / h landing speed, in addition, with one dvigunom, you must have a speed margin. We can assume that the field has received them harshly ...

    There is nothing surprising - everything is logical.
    If you "use" the remnants of the Soviet legacy, not being able to rivet a new one in the same quantity (and even if in the same outdated form), then:
    First, the need to stop puffing out (imitating pseudo-steepness)and
    Secondly, you need to be prepared for such troubles.
    And to the fact that they will happen incrementally. Which, in principle, is happening.

    One thing I can say. All is well that ends well. It’s good that everyone is alive and well, it’s good that everything happened in the Astrakhan region. And not in Syria, in a place where militants control.

      Yeah, in Syria they will immediately be circumcised, and then they will separate the head from the body, they probably also saw how the Komsomol members of the PMC mocked the "civilian" - this is according to Sergey Brilev ...
