Radom- A Tribute

Radom- A Tribute

Postby Rag on Sun 20 Dec 2009, 4:57 pm

On 30th August the two pilots of a Belarus SU-27 were killed when their aircraft crashed during a display at the Radom Airshow in Poland. They were not reckless idiots as some suggested at the time but were both fullblown Colonels in the airforce and experienced pilots. The next day the locals said they stayed with their stricken aircraft to guide it away from a built-up area and that it crashed 6 Kilometres from the airfield. Our thoughts are with their families at this special time.
I was priveliged to watch their practice on Friday and these shots were taken then apart from the first three which are the take-off sequence on their last flight

Very nicely done rag.
I was there on Sunday, and there's not a day goes by when i dont think about those guys... :sad: I still find it terrible sad to think that they lost their lives trying to entertain us.
Nice tribute...

Those first three shots are stunning! All top class. Its such a tragedy what happened to those two guys. I do not believe for a minute that those two guys were in anyway reckless. If it is the case that they stayed with the A/C to steer it clear of a built up area then they are hero's in my eyes.

A fitting tribute to the two guys. RIP

Thanks for posting.

It such a shame when people say that two gifted pilots were doing reckless flying.I mean look at the fantastic handling in here :clap:. I believe that the pictures show that reckless flying is a no go here. R.I.P the two of you.

A few days later, there will be a year that the Belarusian Air Force Su-27UBM lost aircraft and training pilots in the near Radom Małęczyn next to the village. The location near the highway 11/04/2010. memorial was dedicated in their memory. I made some photos of the area, where the machine exploded. The silence was very high ....
