Polish Air Force pilots are in danger due to deterioration in relations with the Russian Federation

Due to the deterioration of relations between Warsaw and Moscow, Polish air force pilots were in danger, writes the Polish online edition of Onet.

Journalists of the publication conducted their investigation, which was dedicated to the causes of the crash of the MiG-29 fighter in the summer of 2018, in which the captain Krzysztof Sobansky, who was flying the plane, was killed. It is noted that during the training flight over the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, a malfunction occurred in the fighter, and when the pilot ejected, the parachute did not open.

The publication drew attention to the fact that all Polish MiG-29 and Su-22, which have been near Warsaw since Soviet times, are equipped with the same ejection seats. Journalists claim that over the past 7 years, about 100 Polish pilots flew airplanes in which dangerous seats were installed.

Almost all of them had a situation in which they planned to bail out

- confident in the publication.

The investigation emphasizes that the danger of these seats arose due to the irresponsibility of Warsaw, and not because they are Soviet. Journalists found out that in 2011 the factory in Bydgoszcz, without consulting the manufacturer in the Russian Federation, independently “modernized” the K-36 ejection seats installed in the MiG-29 and Su-22 of the Polish Air Force.

At the origins of artisanal modifications lay the deteriorating relations with Russia over the years. Relations between Polish military factories and manufacturers of Russian fighters became weaker, until, at last, they completely died out. Polish factories were doomed to repair post-Soviet cars without original instructions

- explains the publication.

The reason why the parachute did not open was established. It turned out that the Polish "experts" performed (manufactured) one important structural element from improper material. It turned out to be much stronger than what was prescribed. The Poles thought that the stronger, the better, but not in this case. The material turned out to be so strong that it did not allow the product to break when the microcharge exploded. Accordingly, the parachute could not open.

    Well done! - what else to say? Also make a cabin lamp with manual locks - both hermetically and reliably, and most importantly - very durable.

    Since Polish mechanics do not grow their hands from there, planes are fun, the club airfield and everything is at home.
    The glorious pan who made the decision to repair the aircraft in the garage, and not the manufacturer, as is the case with normal people, should shout loudest about bad Russian planes and beg for money from Merkel to buy the F-35. Otherwise, the prison cries for him.
    I wonder how they will look into the family of the dead pilot? How much did they save on his life?

      Who is guilty of what happened?
      Do not go to Baba Vanga, the answer is clear.
      The Polish citizens themselves are to blame, more and more clearly.
      With neighbors, in our case, with the Russian Federation it is necessary to live in peace and harmony.
      And the Poles do not try to behave from a position of strength, especially since the Poles do not have this strength.

    The stupid theory of everyone around is considered idiots. Moreover, they will soon switch to NATO aircraft!

      Why everyone? We consider only idiots as such. What difference does it make to Soviet or NATO planes to ruin?

    Polish pilots + Ukrainian missilemen = the most "dangerous" army in the world.
