MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. Russia’s Sukhoi-33 fighter jet crashed in the Mediterranean while landing on The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement obtained by TASS.
"After performing a combat mission over Syria a Sukhoi-33 fighter-jet overran the runway while trying to land on The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier. The arresting cable’s rupture was the reason," the report says.
The pilot ejected himself and was promptly taken on board The Admiral Kuznetsov by search and rescue service. His life is not in danger, the Defense Ministry said.
"Deck aircraft keep performing their missions," the report runs. The Russian aircraft carrier-led group keeps operating in the Mediterranean in accordance with the long voyage plan.
