Самолетът, Су-27УБ с бордови номер 63, изпратен на авиошоуто от Беларус, изгубил управление при изпълнение на акробатични номера и паднал далече от пистата и зрителите.
Двамата пилоти на самолета са загинали -
полковниците Александр Морфицки (заместник командващ на Западното оперативно-тактическо командване на ВВС и ПВО на Белорусия) и Александр Журавлевич (заместник командир на 61-а изтребителна авиабаза).

30.08.2009//11:17 по Гринвичу
Крушение белорусского самолета Су-27УБ на авиашоу в Польше в воскресенье произошло, по предварительным данным, из-за попадания птицы в воздухозаборник, говорится в сообщении пресс-службы белорусского президента.
Для расследования катастрофы создана совместная белорусско-польская комиссия.
Официальные источники сообщают, что двое пилотов высшей категории профессиональной подготовки, летчики-снайперы полковники Александр Марфицкий и Александр Журавлевич не успели катапультироваться, поскольку стремились предотвратить падение самолета на зрителей авиашоу и населенный пункт.
"Осознавая опасность страшной трагедии, белорусские летчики смогли увести падающий истребитель в сторону. Однако ввиду слишком малой высоты маневра времени для того, чтобы катапультироваться и спастись самим, им не хватило", - отмечает пресс-служба президента.
|Два изтребителя Су-27 от групата
за демонстрационни полети "Руски витязи" се сблъскаха при тренировъчен полет
16.08.2009//09:00 по Гринуич
Русия/Москва/край летището на Жуковски/Белозериха - Захариха
Два изтребителя Су-27 се сблъскаха по време на тренировъчен полет над летището в Жуковски в Русия.
Най-вероятната причина за инцидента е грешка на пилот от групата.
Групата се е подготвяла за авиошоу при откриването на авиоизложението "МАКС-2009".
Оломки от двата самолета са паднали в район от няколко стотин метра. Единият от самолетите паднал на поляна край село Захариха, но другият е сринал триетажна вила в с. Белозериха.
От разразилия се пожар са пострадали и съседни постройки.
Един от пилотите е загинал, а другите двама - Игор Куриленко и Виталий Мельник - са с наранявания без опаснот за живота им. Пет са общо пострадалите на земята в района на катастрофата. Четири от тях са настанени в болница за лечение и са със сериозни наранявания, най-вече обгаряния от пожара.
Загиналият е командирът на групата „Руски витязи" Игор Ткаченко. Той също успява да се катапултира, но парашутът му бил обхванат от пламъците на възпламенилия се при сблъсъка самолет.
Бордовите самописци на двата самолета са открити и са в добро състояние, което предполага скоро да бъдат изяснени причините за катастрофата.
Семейството на загиналия пилот ще получи компенсации от 300 000 рубли, а пострадалите на земята по 50 000.
21.08.2009 - Жената ранена на земята при падането на един от изтребителите е починала без да дойде в съзнание. Така жертвите от катастрофата стават двама, а ранените - четирима на земята и двамата оцелели пилоти.

"Русские витязи" столкнулись в воздухе
16.08.2009//09:00 по Гринвичу
Россия/Москва/Белозериха - Захариха
Два истребителя Су-27 пилотажной группы "Русские витязи", которые выполняли учебно-тренировочный полет в преддверии авиасалона "МАКС-2009", в воскресенье столкнулись в воздухе неподалеку от аэродрома в подмосковном Жуковском. Погиб командир "Русских витязей" Игорь Ткаченко, еще двое летчиков, Игорь Куриленко и Виталий Мельник, пострадали.
По предварительным данным, причиной столкновения самолетов стала ошибка в пилотировании при отработке одной из фигур высшего пилотажа, впрочем эксперты также не исключают возможность технической неисправности узлов одного из самолетов.
Обломки самолетов разлетелись на сотни метров друг от друга. По свидетельству очевидцев, один из самолетов упал недалеко от деревни Белозериха, второй - в деревне Захариха. Между этими населенными пунктами, расположенными в Раменском районе Подмосковья, около полутора километров.
При падения самолетов пострадали 5 человек. Четверо пострадавших при пожаре, возникшем при падении истребителя Су-27 в Подмосковье, в дачном товариществе рядом с населенным пунктом Белозериха, находятся в ожоговом центре при 36-й городской больнице Москвы. "Состояние двоих мужчин оценивается как средней тяжести, еще двое находятся в тяжелом состоянии", - сказал врач.
Семье погибшего командира «Русских витязей» выплатят 300 тыс. рублей, а москвичи, пострадавшие при аварии на МАКСе, получат по 50 тыс. рублей.
Найдены бортовые самописцы с обоих разбившихся в воскресенье в Подмосковье при тренировочных полетах истребителей Су-27. "Черные ящики" в удовлетворительном состоянии, что позволит выяснить причины аварии.
21.08.2009 - Женщина, пострадавшая при столкновении двух Су-27 в небе над Жуковским, скончалась в пятницу в ожоговом центре московской городской больницы № 36. Она умерла, не приходя в сознание. Таким образом, жертвами аварии стали два человека.
|Two Russian Su-27 fighters collided
near Moscow killing one of the pilots
RUssia/Moscow/near the Zhukovsky airfield
Two Russian air force fighters rehearsing acrobatic manoeuvres collided near Moscow today, killing one of the pilots and sending the aircraft plummeting into holiday homes, a military official said.
The Su-27 fighter aircraft were part of the elite Russian Knights flying group and had been preparing to perform at the Maks-2009 air show, the largest and most important exhibition for Russia's aerospace industry.
The jets collided near the Zhukovsky airfield, east of Moscow, where the air show opens on Tuesday.
The three pilots in the two aircraft managed to eject from the jets, but one was killed. The other two were in a stable condition.
The Kremlin identified the dead pilot as the Russian Knights' commander, Colonel Igor Tkachenko.
The two jets crashed into a row of houses near the airfield, setting three on fire and scattering debris over a wide area.
One woman on the ground was seriously injured and up to four others may have also been hurt. Later, on 21.08.2009, the injured woman died.

A small private Piper PA-32R-300 plane (N71MC), owned by LCA Partnership, carrying three people and a New York tourist helicopter, Liberty Helicopter Sightseeing Tours Eurocopter AS 350 BA (N401LH), with six collided in midair and plunged into the Hudson River off Hoboken, N.J., opposite Manhattan’s West Side, just before noon on Saturday. All 9 people on board the two aircraft were killed, the authorities said.
|The cause of the accident was under investigation. But what perhaps thousands of people out on a crystalline summer day saw from both sides of the Hudson was a stunning, low-altitude accident in which the plane rolled up and into the helicopter, striking with a crack like thunder as the helicopter’s blades and one of the plane’s wings flew off, and then both aircraft fell and vanished into the river.
As witnesses watched from parks and balconies, three bodies were recovered, one floating in the water and two others from wreckage believed to be that of the helicopter, located by divers on the murky riverbed 30 feet down. The search for the plane was impeded by visibility of only two or three feet at the bottom.

|Crash at Polish air show
kills 2 pilots
A Belarusian fighter jet crashed Sunday during an air show in central Poland, killing both pilots on board the two-seater plane, officials said.
The Su-27 jet with registration 63 went down while performing maneuvers at a festival in Radom, 65 miles (105 kilometers) south of Warsaw.
The plane turning in the air, then dropping behind trees. A giant cloud of black smoke appeared on the horizon. The Su-27 was not near the tarmac or crowds attending the air show when it crashed.
The two Belarusian pilots were killed. A joint Polish-Belarusian panel of experts was investigating the cause.
When the plane began to lose altitude during a stunt flight, the pilots "did not eject and steered the plane away from the town, avoiding graver consequences at the cost of their lives," ministry spokesman Vyacheslav Remenchuk said.
He identified the pilots as Col. Alexander Morfitsky and Col. Alexander Zhuravlevich. He said Morfitsky was deputy commander of an air force unit in western Belarus, and Zhuravlevich was deputy commander of a fighter base.
