A Russian Navy Su-33 carrier-based jet has crashed during a failed landing attempt on the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov on Saturday.
According to reports, the jet crashed during its second attempt to land on the aircraft carrier in good weather conditions. Circulating information points out that that the jet may have missed the wires and failed to go around falling short of the bow of the warship.
The pilot successfully ejected and was picked up by a Russian Navy search and rescue helicopter.
On November 14, a MiG-29K also crashed while returning to the aircraft carrier. This would be the second loss for the air wing embarked on Admiral Kuznetsov in less than three weeks.
