MOSCOW, March 28 (Itar-Tass) — A Su-27 jet of the fourth generation has safely landed after one of its engines failed at the altitude of 600 meters.
Military experts have been investigating the circumstances of the incident which occurred in the Kaliningrad region on Tuesday evening.
A approximately 7.00 pm Tuesday a meter on board the jet signaled an emergency on board - the left engine has failed. The pilot, who reported the situation to the ground control, cut short the flight, switched off the broken engine and began a landing approach with the jet supported by one engine only, the press service of the SK Head Military Investigative department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
As soon as the jet touched down a strong wind forced the jet off the runway; as the jet was sliding onto the ground its undercarriage broke. The pilot had managed to switch off the remaining engine before the jet rolled onto the ground. The pilot left the cockpit on his own. There was no fire. No casualties have been reported. Experts are estimating the damages inflicted by the accident.
Military investigators and experts are examining the aircraft equipment and questioning technical maintenance workers who had checked the jet before the training flight.
