A Su-33 Flanker carrier-based multirole fighter crashed during flight operations from Russia’s Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft-carrying missile cruiser, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on December 5. The incident took place on December 3.
The Su-33 skidded off the dock because of the cable of arresting device broke. The pilot successfully ejected and was picked up by a search and rescue helicopter. This was the second fighter jet lost by Russia’s naval task force. On November 13, Russian MiG-29K crashed in the Mediterranean as a result of a technical fault during the approach landing a few kilometers from Admiral Kuznetsov.
The Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov arrived in the operation aerea along Mediterranean Sea on Nov.8, ready to launch a strike targeting Daesh terrorists in the province of Aleppo.
