Su-24 crash in Amur region

January 19, 2006 on 9:21 pm | In # Avia news |

Su-24 crashOn the 17th of January blackbox of the Su-24 frontline bomber was found. Su-24 has crashed on Monday, the 16th of January near the “Vozhaevka” airfield in the Amur region. As the head of the Air Force press-service colonel Alexandr Drobyshevskiy said to RIA Novosty, blackboxes are in good condition. Right now Moscow committee under command of deputy of the Air Force Commander-in-Chief Alexander Zelenin is working on the crash site.

Frontline bomber Su-24 crashed on Monday, at about 15:00 during its regular flight by far-east union of Russian Air Force and Air Defence. Pilots guided plane into a safe zone and ejected. By the Drobyshevskiy words, both pilots are in satisfactory condition and right now they are on their airforce regiment territory, under doctors supervision.

The official version of the bomber crash reason wasn’t declared yet. By the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Forces army general Vladimir Michailov words, it will be determined in the nearest days. He said that blackboxes should show the exact picture of the accident.

By the preliminary data, the reason of accident became the plane’s technical defect, to say exactly - malfunction of the wing geometry variation system. “Definitely, it is not a pilots fault”, said Vladimir Michailov.

As he added, “Before landing the wing of Su-24 didn’t take the sweep position, pilots had made 20 landing approaches. It was unsafe to do landing, in any case it would cause aircraft destruction, so it was no point to put this risk on pilots.”

We need to mention, during the all Su-24 aircraft operating life it’s only the second crash. The first one happened in August 2003 near the Chita and caused death of two pilots. That time Su-24 crashed into the mountain during it’s regular training excercises.

Crashed SU-24 airborne recorders discovered At the place of the Russian air force bomber SU-24 crash airborne recorders have been discovered.

Investigation commission from Moscow has camped and started their work at the place of occurrence.
"Russian air force is represented in the commission by the deputy commander in chief general-colonel Alexander Zelin", - informed Drobyshevsky on Tuesday morning.

According to his words, the two pilots of the crashed bomber are in satisfactory condition. "They have undergone check-up, at the moment they are in the air regiment hospital under medical supervision-, said the chief of the Air force press-service.

SU-24 crashed on Monday in the course of scheduled flight in Far East unit of air force and air defense. According to the provisional data, the crash has been caused by the aircraft technical default, managing the change of wing geometry.

Su-24 plane crashes near Komsomolsk-on-Amur (Part 2)
MOSCOW. Feb 12 (Interfax) - A Su-24 plane crashed while making a scheduled flight over the Khurba airfield, ten kilometers from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, at 6:52 a.m., Moscow time, on Thursday. "The pilots managed to eject. No casualties or damage were reported from the scene of the crash," Alexander Drobyshevsky, spokesman for the Russian air force, told Interfax on Thursday morning. "The crash was due to malfunctions in the wing mechanism that sets the plane in landing mode. The pilots steered the plane to a safe area and ejected 30 kilometers from the airfield," Drobyshevsky said. The crew was found by a search and rescue team and brought to the airfield, where they were given medical attention. The incident is under investigation, Drobyshevsky said, adding that there were no weapons or ammunition in the plane. He also said that the incident with the Su-24 bomber was the first crash in the Russian air force in 2004. When a MiG-29 fighter in the Rostov region was damaged on January 28, it "was a serious air incident," he said. Dobyshevsky added that the crashed Su-24 was making a training flight that was not part of the command-post exercises currently being held in the Russian armed forces.

On 10 June, two pilots died when their Russian Su-24 combat aircraft exploded while preparing to land at a military airfield outside Ostrov in the northwestern region of Pskov. The crash was the result of an apparent midair explosion approximately 300 meters from the end of the runway. (ITAR-TASS, 1034 GMT, 10 Jun 98; FBIS-SOV-98-161, and Mayak Radio Network, 1630 GMT, 10 Jun 98; FBIS-SOV-98-161)

The Su-24 is a twin-engined supersonic tactical bomber attack aircraft. This particular aircraft was registered to the Baltic Fleet. Reportedly, the aircraft had undergone technical and maintenance servicing prior to its flight from Chernyakhovsk to Ostrov. While most recent accidents and incidents have occurred due to poor training (such as insufficient flight hours), the unexpected and sudden explosion indicated a mechanical failure.

Today in Russia, current average accumulated flight hours are nearly one-tenth of the annual operational requirement. This lack of training can have obvious repercussions. But while flight hours may be easier to quantify, no less detrimental to safety and operational effectiveness are the hours allotted for maintenance training and quality assurance. With recent reports of spare parts shortages to hinder further proper maintenance, it is little wonder that such incidents occur.
