Disclosed details of the crash of the Su-57 in the Khabarovsk Territory

A representative of the aircraft industry spoke about what happened to the fifth-generation multi-functional fighter Su-57, which crashed on Tuesday in the Far East.

According to the expert, the accident occurred during a test flight, which the Su-57 performed at an altitude of 8 thousand meters:

Due to the failure of the control system, the fighter spontaneously entered a descending spiral (the aircraft moves along a helical path with a roll and loss of height), began to decline rapidly, and then fall.

All attempts by the pilot to level the plane using manual control were unsuccessful, and therefore, at an altitude of 2 thousand meters, the pilot made the only correct decision in the current situation - to eject. It is reported TASS.

The bailout was successful, and after relying on a medical examination in such cases, the pilot was released home from the hospital.

Edition Kommersant reports that test pilot Aleksey Gorshkov was at the helm of a crashed fighter, and this is not the first time that he has fallen into a situation where there is no other choice but to leave the falling vehicle.

In 2012, the pilot had already had to eject from an ignited Su-30 fighter, which was flying around before being transferred to the Vietnam Air Force.

    The publication "Kommersant" reports that behind the wheel ... fighter ...

    The merchant did not write about the steering wheel. The author, correct in the text, "walked on the oars" will be OK. As a last resort, "flying a fighter" will do.

      So, electronics refused, and whose electronics do we have? American, that’s the answer.

        "American" electronics are made in Taiwan.

    A corkscrew in aviation is a special, critical flight mode of an airplane (glider), consisting in its reduction in a steep descending spiral of small radius with simultaneous rotation relative to all three of its axes ...

    - this is "flying", comrades - so that a modern combat fighter of the fifth generation could not get out of a tailspin at an altitude of 5-8 km!?!?! It's just a kapets, no words ... Did he have the engine not working ??? In manual mode, planes learned to pull out of a spin a hundred years ago.

    I’m not sure that this plane is exactly the fifth generation. With stealth, very noticeable problems. The engine is also not what it should be. Of another not yet. Rockets those you need not yet either.
    As well as a full-time staff.
    So, for now, the Su-57 is only a "status air fetish" used to support the Kremlin's cheekiness.
    It is no coincidence, after all, it was the Chief Cheek Inflator who insisted that they be released as many as 76 pieces, against 10-15, as previously planned.

    Well, he wants to somehow catch up with the United States in terms of status.
    Let asymmetrically. However, as always.

      As you can see from the text, you are a very large expert in the field of aviation. In fact, a typical set of stamps of a liberal or a representative of a nation of great Sumerians. I think that I was not mistaken.

    No, small.
    But I know enough to say for sure - if someone is trying to show steepness, it (steepness) must be tangible.
    Since the mid-50s, the T-57 / Su-2010 has become a byword: every now and then it was extolled as having no analogues in the world. Well, well, the patriots began to bite at this business. They pecked and pecked, but they also wanted to see the "air fetish" in the ranks. And in response to them - Why hurry, We need to finish it, We have a good Su-35 too, If it will be necessary - then we will rivet, and all other "excuses" in the same style.
    And of course, a couple of times a year a "status air fetish" (a couple of individual pieces that have nothing to do with serial production) will certainly fly somewhere over Red Square - to raise the level of patriotism among the population.
    Then suddenly again "the sun came out from behind the clouds": after the intervention of the President of the Russian Federation, it was decided that the Su-57 would be produced in an amount of 76 units (versus 10-15 originally planned). The patriots again "got excited" - they began to count down the days until they were transferred to the troops. And then, in the process of checking a seemingly small-scale production (and therefore tested in all the main points) aircraft, it turned out that the Su-57 (at least that sample) had "problems with the tail." This can hardly be attributed to "childhood illness".
    PS Summarizing the above:
    The level of patriotism must be raised by the quality of life of the population, and its confidence in the future.
    Military "toys" are best left to the military.
    It is not worth using one-time "scarecrows" either to increase the level of support for the authorities among the population, or to try to take on the "foe".
    As the case of the Su-57 shows, this can cause the opposite results. Already the population does not care about the Su-57, and when it will be transferred to the troops.
    And the adversary chuckles quietly at the Kremlin’s attempts.

      Does the article talk about "coolness" or technique? And if you are a "specialist" in toughness, and not in military aircraft, how can you talk about airplanes? You have "vna" - how many planes in general have you created? Well, at least one military product? ("Dung" - you can leave it blank, so as not to make people laugh)

    The pilot ran out of fuel and catapulted with a light heart))
