A MiG-29 fighter jet has crashed in the Moscow suburbs. Both pilots managed to eject from the aircraft, local media report.
The twin-engine jet belonged to the Gromov Flight Research Institute, media reported, citing sources in law enforcement agencies.
Both pilots ejected from the aircraft and survived.
One of the pilots allegedly received an injury after he ejected from the aircraft.
The plane, which was flying from Zhukovsky Airport in southeast Moscow, reportedly fell in the forest near Dmitrovskoye village, away from populated areas.
One of the engines of the jet caught fire and the blaze led to the plane crash, sources familiar with the situation revealed.
Locals recorded the aftermath of the crash on the video, released on NTV channel. The footage shows plumes of smoke and debris allegedly belonging to the jet.

Recently, there is a lot of military jets crashing. Last time F-35, now Mig 29…

Nope, it happens on regular basis. It was the 1st F-35 to crash in 17 years… 109 Mig-29 crashed since 1986, incl the 0000 prototype. 4th crashes in 2018, 9th since 2016, including 2 Mi-29K (naval version, similar to Mig-35 w. folding wings), considering how it’s very recent and less than 70 built (45 for Indian Navy, 24 for Russia)… Mig-29K seems having problem with ski-jump. Since aerodynamics are excellent, hydrodynamics must be so… Future submarine drone? Russian engines are pretty powerful but need high maintenance and are very thirsty.

Was it a test for S-300?

They obviously lost a lot of pigeons…
Note that Kerosene is not great to prepare roasted pigeons.
I enjoin you to avoid Putin pigeons (or any other meat) skewers in the exhausts of a Mig-29, meat will smell funny.
VKS (RuAF) already sells vodka with kerosene in, don’t go further, their skewers are to be avoided.
