Russian pilot landed Su-25 with unreleased landing gear

A video is gaining popularity on the network, in which a Russian Su-25 attack aircraft lands on the runway of an airfield with its undercarriage not extended.

The time and place of landing of the attack aircraft remain unknown. In all likelihood, the Russian combat aircraft, which was returning to the airfield after a mission in the NVO zone, had a landing gear release system. Despite this, the pilot was able to land the plane.

As experts emphasize, what happened is a rather rare event. Most likely, the attack aircraft refused the main method of releasing the chassis using a hydraulic system. The emergency landing gear release mode using the aircraft pneumatic system did not work either.

The instruction for pilots in such cases prohibits the landing of the aircraft. The pilot had to eject, because at the slightest mistake during landing it would be simply impossible to correct it. But, probably, the pilot decided to keep the car and took the risk.

The footage clearly shows how the Su-25 sits on its belly. For several tens of meters, the car slides along the concrete surface, but, in the end, it stops safely.

It is important to note the highest professionalism of the pilot, who managed to save an expensive combat vehicle, and his courage. In numerous comments to the video, users literally demand to submit a pilot for a state award.

    The Star of the Hero is the smallest for the pilot who piloted this aircraft.

    The plane is, by and large, a piece of iron, which anyway either takes a long time to restore after such a landing, or even for spare parts.
    A pilot is a living specialist whose training takes much longer than building an aircraft.

    I don't want to sound like a cynic, but I don't quite understand what's heroic about risking your life for a piece of iron. Moreover, a trained pilot is still a greater deficit than an airplane. In theory at least.

    Well done. Perfectly controlled the aircraft on holding. Purely, without overload, "priter" it to the strip. Such work causes pleasure and admiration

    Millions of people around us do their job perfectly and professionally, so we don't even notice them around us.
    The more disgusting is the existence in the same reality next to us of bastards who daily betray and sell the interests of Russia, parasites who row everything for themselves, depriving the country of resources that could save it for decades, pests who turn the most beautiful undertakings of others into useless trash depriving the country and us of a chance for the future
