MURANOVO VILLAGE (Moscow Region), June 9. /TASS/. A Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jet from the Russian Knights aerobatic team that crashed in the Moscow Region most likely exploded when it hit the ground, an eye-witness told TASS on Thursday.
"I watched the flight but the plane wasn’t seen in the sky. Only an explosion was heard and then a column of black smoke came from a forest area," the eye-witness said.
It was reported earlier on Thursday that a Su-27 fighter plane had crashed in the Pushkino district of the Moscow Region. Russia’s Defense Ministry officially confirmed the plane’s crash and the pilot’s death.
