    How come it crashed with a bird in the engine, shouldnt it fly with one engine?
    Or did both engines get birds in them?

    Bird hits have been known to take out even four engined aircraft, they don't' need to be sucked into engine, hit in the wrong spot is often enough

    Considering it is in process of taking off, most probably it didn't have enough altitude to save plane. RIP to the crew.

    Could easily have been more than one bird too... birds sometimes fly in groups...

    RIP to crew.

    Dare I say it, they should have ejected and saved themselves and let the plane crash... nobody will go to the funeral of a plane...

    Russian Ka-52 has crashed in Syria earlier today. Both pilot & WSO died as a result, bodies have been recovered. MoD claims technical malfunction, Kommesant source that it might have been shot down by hostile MANPADS.

    As I have said countless of times, Kommersant is total fucking shit and sorry George, but posting it reduces your credibility by a huge portion.

    No evidence needed. Just trying to make money from a story over dead people due to a malfunction. They should be shot.

    Agreed. Kommersant is pure trash, making claims without any real evidence it's basically the National Inquirer of the CIS, especially considering that of all the CAS aircraft that the Ka-52 is arguably the least susceptible to be defeated by manpads. RIP to the pilots.

    Ka-52 has DIRCM suite and should be one of the hardest targets to be shot by MANPADs. I alos think it most likely BS.

    Of course it was. It crashed near Syrian Army positions. It would have been rather easy for them to know for sure if it was shot down or not.

    It was even disclosed in the report that they were fighting to save the jet till the last moment. They should have bailed. But its more proof that it was probably a bird. They probably initiated the procedure for a bird and thought they could save it.

    Hmm they stayed with it far to long, shoulda punched out. I wonder if this is cultural. An experience flight crew is much harder to replace then a plane.

    What a joke.  Far too many crashes.  At least with these old birds.

    I think a replacement is needed sooner than later.

    There is also the theory it is a newly renovated aircraft, and at that point, facility that modernized it needs to be investigated cause this is happening far too often.

    Accidents need to be properly investigated before decisions on action are taken... accidents because of mistakes or errors or just bad luck are not evenly spread out over time... some times there are clusters of unrelated accidents, and other times there are gaps.

    The one thing to note is that now they are getting more air time then problems will show up too... but the best way to prevent all air crashes is to never leave the ground...

    Good point.

    But Russia has a rather bad, much like US, crash rate. Both have very sloppy forms of QC.

    USA can afford it due to printing funny money.

    Russia doesn't.

    So hence next step is for Russia to increase quality control. Maybe have a third party from government monitor all QC.

    Are you so sure?
    Charly015 counts don't look too bad really.

    Tass has done a list of MiG-31 incidents in last 10yrs https://tass.ru/info/5582757
    Its 9: 1 per year except 2009, 2012 and 2 in 2010, 8 lost planes, 4 incidents seem to be from crew error.

    Vann keeps going on about quality control too... which is funny, because he really has no fricken idea what sort of quality control Russian aircraft manufacturers have, or implement.

    I would say what I normally say... wait for the investigation to be completed and then look at their recommendation and work from there...

    At the end of the day accidents will ALWAYS happen... even with perfect quality control... the best you can hope for is training to make sure if they can't save the plane that they save themselves instead.

    And no it is not necessarily a Russian thing... most pilots I know have a special relationship with their planes and will try to save them if they can... of course they can always be wrong and when they are they die with the plane.

    Obviously ejecting at the hint of a problem is not good either... finding a middle ground is the problem and the issue... and there will always be mistakes that will either cost an aircraft when it did not need to, or will cost lives when it should not have... clearly the latter is much worse than the former...
    Needless to say when there are thousands of aircraft with thousands of pilots flying every day in good weather and in bad weather then you could expect rather more accidents... you can bet that over the last 10 years there were more car accidents than aircraft accidents in most countries... and most cars are very well made and don't normally leave the ground.

    You can't really compare US crash rates to Russian. The US flies 2 million flight hours a year, we are in the low hundreds of thousands.

    No they don't, especially not anymore.

    Anyway, MiG-29UB crashed today in Moscow region. Thankfully no one hurt or killed.

    Of course you can compare US crashes with Russian crashes but you need to be very careful about the conclusions you draw...
