Sukhoi Su-57 fighter jet has crashed during the test flight in Khabarovsk Krai, Russia's Far East. According to The Moscow Times, "the incident occurred days before Russia’s Aerospace Forces were due to receive their first serial-produced Sukhoi Su-57 (...)".
The pilot reportedly bailed out and was rescued by a helicopter crew.
The Aviationist elaborated on the issue. "This latest crash of Russia’s most advanced tactical aircraft, the Su-57, also follows the Dec. 17, 2019, crash landing of a Tu-22M3 Backfire (whose crew members escaped without injuries ) and the crash of a Russian Mi-28 two-man gunship helicopter, NATO reporting name “Havoc”, that killed two crew members near the Korenovsk airfield in the Krasnodar region”, the outlet wrote.
In October 2019, the Republic of Korea's fighter jets intercepted Russian Air Force bombers in its air space identification zone. This was the 20th violation of this zone without early warning from the Russian side over this year.
