The plane that crashed on a residential building in Irkutsk, Russia, crashed due to the poor quality of the repairs carried out. This was stated by the Main Directorate of Ukrainian Intelligence.
According to the Main Intelligence Directorate, as a result of flight tests of two Su-30SM aircraft over Irkutsk, one of them crashed and fell on a residential building. The crew died. It is known that both aircraft were tested after repair work. One of them, after fulfilling the flight plan, landed at the airfield, the second remained in the air, and the crew did not get in touch for 20 minutes.
The first plane took off again and approached the emergency ship. The pilots visually witnessed that the crew of the crashed aircraft died, likely due to a faulty oxygen system. After running out of fuel, the defective aircraft crashed on a residential building in the Novolenino area.
The crash of the Russian aircraft was associated with a low level of repair work. As a result, the cabin was depressurized during the flight. The crew failed to eject, resulting in the death of both pilots. The name of one of the dead – Viktor Kryukov.
It should be reminded that in Russia the reason for the death of the Su-30 crew that crashed on a residential building in Irkutsk was the nitrogen residue in oxygen cylinders. Even earlier, they announced about the birds that got into the turbines.
