CRASH D’UN AVION MILITAIRE À ORAN
Plus de peur que de malUn avion de chasse probablement un Mig 23, stationné à la base de Tafraoui s’est écrasé hier aux environs de 11 heures dans un massif boisé au lieu dit Sidi Bakhti non loin de Boutlelis, une localité rattachée à la daïra de Aïn Kerma à la sortie sudouest d’Oran. Le pilote qui est sorti indemne en réussissant à s’éjecter de l’appareil, a pu, grâce à une bonne maîtrise, éviter à l’avion de s’écraser sur une zone peuplée ce qui aurait pu avoir des conséquences dramatiques.

FEEDBACK

DID the above the above ejection take place. ??
The above information is extracted from the considerable media speculation and reports.

NO
- The aircraft was on a test flight over the  Mediterranean sea and made a Mach bang. Algerian media mis-reported the incident. The aircraft landed safely and normally at Bousfer air base

YES - It has also been reported that this was single seat MiG-29 the pilot ejected OK

YES - It has also been reported that this was two seat MiG-29U and both instructor and student ejected OK. The pilot took avoiding action to avoid ground casualties

YES - Its a MiG-23 from Tafraoui

NO - "Information from Algeria"
 

FEEDBACK

Wreckage of the C-130H Hercules which crashed on 30th June 2003 is being shown in some reports as the crashed MiG

 


 

Wreckage being shown in some reports as the crashed MiG-29 is obviously that of the C-130 lost on 30th June 2003 -
"that crashed into a wheat field . . ."

The latest opinion is that NO CRASH occurred and that the Sonic Boom is the correct version
