Just breaking...


Russia says a military cargo plane has crashed at the Russian air base in Syria, killing all 32 people onboard.

The Defense Ministry says the An-26, with 26 passengers and six crew members onboard, crashed Tuesday just 500 meters (1,600 feet) from the runway.
The military blamed the crash on a technical error.

Russia, a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, leases a military base in Syria near the Mediterranean coast.


No survivors on the crash... May God confort the family of the victims.


And what's up with the Russian planes lately?

Another incident on February 11 killing 71

This is proving to be a taxing endeavor for Russia.

This isn't good news right before their "election".

Though we all know the results.

Quite timely................... If another goes down then something's going on.

If something else happens that's far to convenient to explain, I'd expect the inverse for us.

If you look at the time lines there are a few questionable connections.

So was Vietnam. Easier for them though because they are a lot closer compared to the US, EU (NATO) and "Coallition".

You've never followed plane crashes much, have you. They always seem to happen in multiples of three when they happen. The Russian Air Force, and Russian aviation in general isn't exactly known for their safety records. Their Air Force went through a two month period last year or the year before where they lost 8 aircraft (including a helicopter) in seven weeks. Several of their airlines have been blacklisted,and are banned from flying outside of Russia because of their issues.

Yeah it is true the Ruskies do seem to suffer from plenty of air incidents. The fact that Russia survived the past 25 years post USSR is a miracle from all the external pressures placed upon it now there is a lack of dosh too and this must be filtering down to the crashes. Plus they lost their empire and half the population with it along with much of the industrial complexes. I'll give Russia one thing though, they keep trying to play it large
