Su-30SM fighter crashed in a residential area of ​​Irkutsk


On October 23, in Irkutsk, during a training flight, a Su-30SM fighter crashed on a two-story residential building in the Novo-Lenino microdistrict, taking off from the airfield of a local aircraft factory. A fire started in the crash zone and clouds of acrid smoke rushed into the sky.


Employees of various services quickly arrived at the scene. According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the fire was localized, there were no casualties among the population. At the same time, both crew members of the crashed aircraft, unfortunately, died.

Eyewitnesses published footage documenting the moment the plane crashed. The video shows how the Su-30SM falls on a residential building in the private sector. Apparently, the aircraft was completely uncontrollable, and the crew, probably due to overloads or a breakdown in the oxygen system, was unconscious, since the fighter fell almost vertically (nose to the ground).


According to available footage from the scene of the accident, the fallen Su-30SM was still unpainted, i.e. in yellow primer. This indicates that the board was tested after construction.


On the fact of the incident, the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case and launched an investigation. The aircraft belonged to an aircraft manufacturing company and was tested without ammunition. We express our condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

    Isn't it often? Isn't it time to start looking for hidden schenevmerl in airfield workers - both military and test?

    Condolences to the families of the pilots! A terrible tragedy!

      Apparently, the aircraft was completely uncontrollable, and the crew, probably due to overloads or a breakdown in the oxygen system, was unconscious, since the fighter fell almost vertically (nose to the ground).

      There was a preliminary version of the strange state in which the pilots were.

      Immediately after the crew of the Su-30 aircraft that took off for testing stopped communicating, a second board was sent. Having flown into dense air, the pilots of the second aircraft saw that their colleagues from the Su-30 were unconscious.
      The available footage shows that the engines of the crashed Su-30 aircraft continued to operate, but the aircraft fell down like a stone and the crew did not take any, even minimal, actions to save the aircraft.
      Given that the fighter pilots spend the entire flight in oxygen masks, the cause of the loss of consciousness could be a malfunction of this system.
      It is emphasized that the car was brand new ...

    Planes are made like space rockets. Start - fell.

      What, nothing caught on in the tragedy, didn’t skip a beat anywhere?
