The Il-18 that crashed this morning was a Russian Air Force Il-18V, registration RF-91821.

Lack of trained personnel, particularly experienced pilots, is a key challenge for the Russian military:

The Russian Navy doesn't have a NCO program unlike the Russian Army, which has in recent times. Even then, the Russian NCO's are considered to be lacking:

The "Jamestown foundation" has (and always had) a very anti-Russian/Soviet bias. I wouldn't put much trust in an article about Russia coming from them.

A Russian Air Force Tu-154 crashed in the Black Sea this morning, about 20 minutes after take-off from Sochi. The aircraft was on its way from Moscow to Syria and had made a refueling stop in Sochi. It had 83 passengers and 8 crew members on board.

The Tu-154 was carrying the Alexandrov Ensemble and accompanying journalists to Syria for a New Year's event.

The aircraft concerned is reportedly RA-85572.

Just curious, what's the point of this thread? If we're going to start up threads cataloging military aircraft incidents, perhaps there should be one for each of the major powers? (US, UK, China, Japan) This thread seems redundant seeing as how it's two years old, and half the replies are from the same poster who seems to keep track of Russian aircraft crashes for fun, and thinks the Ukrainian Air Force is just the tops.

It's a Russia bashing page, the Yanks have just as bad a safety record, why this week there were apparently several US aircraft involved in emergency landings. I agree, there should be balance as well as intelligent discussion on thes incidents.

The issue is rate of incidents, not the sheer number.

There's a bigger issue, if say an airline that records 20 incidents a week with 100 flights, versus an airline that records 500 incidents a week but has 10,000 flights in the same time period.

With how big the US military is, the sheer number of aircraft in service with all branches of the US military, and the very high flight time that is achieved by US military pilots, there's bound to be a large number of incidents. But if the number of incidents is just less than 5% of the total number of flights the US military performs, that's an impressive safety record.

If memory serves me, these Mig-29K, with folding wings and other bells and whistles for carrier operations, were a rather rare commodity. Are they still in production?

Might be still possible to order one, but all deliveries are complete.

If this crash is also confirmed, that's 2 MiG-29K's lost in a period of half a year... with a fleet size that was originally 24 aircraft, not exactly an auspicious safety record.

Two RuAF Yak-130s reportedly crash-landed on the same day.

In Borisoglebsk in Voronezh Oblast, a Yak-130 crash-landed after the front landing gear failed to deploy. After multiple manoeuvres to try to get the landing gear to deploy, the crew landed without the front gear, resulting in serious damage to the front section of the airplane.

On the same day, a Yak-130 belly-landed in Krasnodarskiy krai, reportedly also after the front gear failed to deploy.

Are these total serviceable hulls? Or active hulls?
Because it could happen that harvesting of usable components from this frame could be sufficient to reactivate a parked frame, sitting somewhere "stored" or "inactive".
USSR built a lot of equipment, and it was not unusual for Russia to operate a fraction of what it inherited.

As I understand it, around 500 Tu-22M were build, although a number were inherited by Belarus and Ukraine, the mainstay was within the Russian Federation.

Around 500 were built, but a large part of that number were Tu-22M2, only 268 were Tu-22M3. Of those, at least half have been retired, scrapped, or crashed. Right now only the Tu-22M3 is left in service.

Around half of all Tu-22M were Tu-22M3. As I mentioned, around 60 Tu-22Ms were left in Ukraine after the breakup of the USSR. Those are all scrapped now. I’m not sure how many were M2 and how many were M3, maybe about half/half. Around 15 or so Tu-22M3 were scrapped in Vozdvizhenka after that regiment was deactivated around 2010. The rest were transferred to Belaya. An old repair plant in Russia has 3 of them sitting there dismantled with no future. The Naval Tu-22M3s at Mongohto were transferred to the air force several years ago. 8 remain at Mongohto, probably because they were not flyable. A handful are at Kazan and Zhukovsky in various states of disrepair. Based on latest Google Earth images.

Belaya – 34 (20 seem stored)
Mongohto – 8 stored
Ryazan – 11 (5 seem stored)
Shaikovka – 23 (4 seem stored)
Soltsy – 7 (probably all stored as it is not an active base but only used for Shaikovka deployments)
Ostrov – 1 stored
Kaliningrad – 3 stored
Kazan (overhaul plant) – 7 (4 stored)
Olenegorsk – 39 (26 seem stored)

That makes a total of 133 with ~78 stored. Which gives 55 as “active”. However there can be errors in this methods:

1) Aircraft airborne when satellite photo was taken (less visible than real amount)
2) Aircraft inside hangars or inside overhaul plant (less visible than real amount)
3) Deployments from one unit to another (possible “double counting” of airframes)

That being said, the amount looks realistic and I’d consider the google earth imagery to be slightly less of the real count because of the factors above. In addition, the following “RF-“ numbers have been noted on Tu-22M3s (53 total). RF-94233 was just lost.

However, some are still flying without RF- numbers. And some RF- numbers might now be stored. So yes, based on the RF- numbers and google earth count, I’d say around 60 are active.

Wow, at about the 57 seconds mark, you can see the left wing going up in pieces! Luckily the fuel in it did not ignite. (maybe there are no fuel cells in the "variable wing" portion?)

That was a very lucky escape there for that crew. There is a cutaway drawing of the TU-22M:

afaik never. Think about the complications.

.... but anyone got a translation for
97: deposito integrado en ala barbor

( "60: deposito combustible en raiz ~= fuel tank in root )

"barbor" should read "babor". Talking about tank integrated into the port wing.

46: depósito integrado en ala estribor (starboard)
97: depósito integrado en ala babor (port)
101: depósito integrado en caja articulación alar

If that is what I take it to be, then it's a miracle it didn't go off like a bomb. What would be the typical fuel loading for these planes I wonder, and how is it distributed across the tanks the plane has?

There are indeed fuel tanks ("deposito") in the variable portion of T-22Ms wings (as per above linked cut away).

Those tanks must have been empty (and without much fuel vapors) or indeed, something close to a miracle occurred.

Maybe those (little?) vapors caused the wing to go up in pieces.

It was reported that the airspeed indicator failed, so the captain aborted takeoff past V1.

Hmm. Interesting, but must have a been a close call even with that kind of fault. Try to fly without knowing airspeed, or crash and burn at the end of the runway? Luckily they didn't burn, but no one could have known that when aborting...

Su-24 has a reputation as a very unforgiving plane to pilot. In general, Soviet variable-geometry bombers (Su-24 and Tu-22/Tu-22M) seem to be not easy on their pilots; particularly Su-24, AFAIR was singled out by a public report some years ago as the type with the highest amount of mishaps (or fatalities, I might mix up) of RuAF.
