Tu-95 Explosion of strategic bomber
8 June 2015. Ukrainka airfield, Amur Oblast, RF.
"One of the co-pilots died instantly and the commander of the crew who suffered burns to 75% of the body died two months later.
In the course of routine training flights during acceleration Tu-95 skidded off the runway. One of the engines blew up and then the burning bomber spun around 180 degrees."

These old Ty-95's are being pushed to there limits. The young pilots flying them lack training. Sad.

One more casualty of Putin's ramp-up of aggression. He's determined to have his place in history as the man who brought Russia back to its role as a world power, no matter the cost.
