MiG-31 crashed in Primorsky Krai


Emergency services of Primorsky Krai reported the crash of a MiG-31 in a forest near the village of Alekseevka. According to preliminary data, there are no casualties or damage at the accident site. The crew of the aircraft ejected, the condition of the pilots is being investigated.


The Ministry of Defense clarified that the MiG-31 was performing a training flight without ammunition. The crash occurred in a deserted place in the Nadezhdinsky district, a few kilometers from the nearest settlement Alekseevka.

The interceptor fighter reportedly crashed into a wooded area almost immediately after taking off from an unspecified airfield. The plane could take off from the nearest airfield in Vozdvizhenka, 35 km north of the scene, where the 322nd Aircraft Repair Plant of the Russian Defense Ministry is located.

Another airfield is located 130 km away, in the village of Chernigovka, where the 18th Guards Assault Aviation Regiment "Normandia-Neman" is stationed. But, based on the open data of the Ministry of Defense, MiG-31s ​​are not based at any of these airfields.

Recall that the MiG-31 is a heavy high-altitude fighter-interceptor. Modifications of the MiG-31K / I, capable of delivering strikes with the Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, are part of the joint Russian-Belarusian group of forces and are based at the airfield near Minsk.

    What is there to croak, what a pop, such is the arrival. According to statistics, among the leaders in accidents in aviation. It's only good that the pilots managed to eject. .

    I didn't quite understand you about the priest. Do you mean the commander of the pair? link? Squadrons? shelf? VKS? MO? Countries? UN? Local Group of Galaxies? :)

      Replica. As you understand, it is. Pop personifies the leadership of all in the parish. Here, probably, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation acts as a "priest" and is responsible for everyone, and then down in order. It should be: after the catastrophe, all the heads of the units should not sleep at night and put things in order, so that another catastrophe does not happen, otherwise "head off". And here, catastrophe after catastrophe, - the priest, "either the drunk is sleeping" or the deaf, is inactive.

    Did you serve in the army? And if so, how far from aviation?

    In fact, absolutely everything that flies ends up on the ground anyway. Sometimes - in an unrepairable condition. And the more intense they fly, the more often they fight.
    You can ban flights. Then they won't fight (temporarily). But as soon as you start flying again, they will start beating again. Moreover, after the lifting of the ban, it is much stronger. Just because detraining has set in, they have forgotten how. It needs to be re-commissioned.
