More about that strike aircraft crash
Thanks to reader 'a bear' for providing the link to this article about the crash of that Sukhoi Su-34 last year, about which I posted a video earlier today. Here's a picture of the plane at the end of the runway. Click the image for a larger view.
There's more at the link. Looks like it was a wild ride!
According to another commenter, speaking of the Russian-language exchanges heard on the video recording, "As soon as he lands, the air traffic controller is saying 'brake, brake, BRAKE!' " Clearly, those instructions weren't obeyed; but fortunately, the two crew members escaped with light injuries. The aircraft wasn't so lucky.
