Russia. MiG-29 aircraft crashes due to failure
Save the two pilots who have been ejected -VIDEO
This morning a Russian MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter aircraft crashed near Moscow in a forest close to the village of Dmitrovskoye, due to a problem with the control system that forced the pilots to eject after taking the aircraft to an area uninhabited. The Mikoyan-Gurevich in question had taken off from Zhukovsky airport for a training flight during which the technical problem occurred. In the last 3 years it is the ninth MiG-29 to precipitate -one has been knocked down-; with the last one had fallen last July, killing a Polish Air Force pilot. An investigation was opened on the incident by the armed forces and the United Aircraft Corporation to ascertain the reason that caused the problem to the twin-engine control systems from air superiority.
