Mig-29 jet crashes near Russia's Kuznetzov aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean during Syria operation
Three Russian MiG-29K fighter jets took off from their Soviet-era aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, and flew in the direction of Syria. Once airborne, one of the Russian jets appeared to have mechanical difficulties and turned around in the direction of the aircraft carrier.
The pilot of the doomed aircraft ejected safely and was rescued by a helicopter while the Russian Navy radioed all the nearby vessels to remain 5NM away from the crash point.
It is not the 1st time, when plane unsuccesfully landed on Admiral Kuznetsov
