Ex-Russian Pilot Flying Mig-29F Shot Down in Sudan

Recommended Posts


Why can't you edit the thread title?!?



Interesting article about an ex-Russian military pilot in Sudan to "teach" was shot down by ground fire in sudan while flying a Mig-29F during heavy fighting.


Two notables for me if the information in this article is accurate: he had to be flying pretty low to get shot by a large caliber machine gun; the famed Russian ejection system failed this time.

...or maybe the pilot or the G shock detectors never hand a chance to activate ejection and the plane went balistic into the ground.

May 29, 2008 (WASHINGTON) — The Russian government confirmed that one of its citizens was killed during clashes that erupted near the Sudanese capital earlier this month.




Russia’s news agency (Interfax) quoted an unidentified official as saying that a retired military pilot died in combat

Looks like a simple newspaper hoax for me
