Russian fighter jet skids off aircraft carrier in Mediterranean

A Russian Sukhoi Su-33 fighter jet skidded off the country's sole aircraft carrier deployed in the Mediterranean after completing a combat mission in Syria, and the pilot successfully ejected, the Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.

"After a combat mission in Syria, the fighter jet rolled out of the deck while landing on the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov," the ministry said in a statement, without specifying when the accident happened.

The pilot was immediately taken on board of the aircraft carrier, the statement said, adding that the accident was caused by a broken cable of the aircraft's arresting gear.

It was the second accident involving Admiral Kuznetsov in a month, since the aircraft carrier arrived in the Mediterranean to provide support to Russia's air campaign in Syria.

On Nov. 15, a MiG-29 fighter jet crashed during a training mission as it approached the aircraft carrier for a landing due to technical failure.

Three fixed wing, one shot down in an ambush by Turkish f-16's and two in accidents on Kuznetzov, both due to mechanical failure rather than pilot competence. In fact, in all three instances the crew manage to eject safely. One pilot was then murdered on the ground by Kurdish(?) terrorists, as I remember.
