Polish Air Force MiG-29 Accidentally Opens Fire On Another Fighter Jet During Training

The Polish Air Force is investigating an incident in which one MiG-29 fighter jet opened fire from its 30-mm gun on another fighter aircraft during a training exercise in Nadazice in the Greater Poland Voivodeship on May 14th.

The Defense Ministry confirmed the incident.

“The State Commission for the Investigation of Aviation Accidents is investigating an aviation incident related to the damage to the hull of a MiG-29 22.BLT [Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego] fighter during an exercise at the training ground in Nadazice.”

However, the Ministry refused to respond to further questions.

The crew of the fighter jet was not injured, but the aircraft itself was damaged and needs to be repaired.

“We don’t know what the weather and conditions were, but there was definitely a problem with the training of the crews and their compliance with safety rules,” says General Tomasz Drevniak, a former Air Force inspector.

The terrible technical condition of the MiG-29 flying in the Polish air force is increasingly threatening the lives of the pilots.

In March 2019, four minutes after take-off from the 23rd Tactical Air Base in Mińsk Mazowiecki, the MiG-29 pilot heard a roar and lost control of the machine. He catapulted over the forest near Węgrów. The machine was completely destroyed. Unofficially, Polish media claimed that the cause of the accident was mechanical wear of the engine.

After that accident, post-Soviet fighters were grounded for eight months. After the flights resumed, the pilots told us that the planes were in such a bad condition that it was only a matter of time before the next failure. They claimed that they were struggling, among others, by with malfunctions of the cabins, delamination of the fairings and cracking elements of the undercarriage.

In December 2019, only a month after the resumption of flights, aMiG-29 fighter pilot was returning to the base in emergency due to a broken generator.

In an interview with Onet, the former air force inspector, Gen. Tomasz Drewniak called the generator failure “one of the worst cases that can happen to a pilot”:

“If the generator does land, the pilot simply has no energy in the machine. The current from the battery is enough for him for 5-10 minutes, and then everything turns off. In such cases, the instruction clearly states: “Immediately stop the task and land at the nearest airport.” Landing without electricity is possible, but extremely difficult,” he said.

Another dangerous incident occurred in January 2020. A MiG-29 from the 22nd Tactical Aviation Base in Malbork lost its braking parachute during its flight over civilian areas. A 50 cm long tube, weighing approximately 20 kg, is used to brake the machine after landing.

The terrible condition of the machines, as well as the failure to report many incidents for fear of another grounding of fighters, are the main reasons why pilots are retiring early or changing qualifications to civil aircraft.

PUTIN IS SECRET HOMOSEXUAL

What I’m even more surprised about is that Poland didnt receive any superior NATO jets, why do they still have to rely on old soviet junk? Its almost as if it has proven its worth.

Why does the USA not provide some 15th generation hyperultrasonic, solar powered UFO interceptors? The galactic federation, our greatest ally, sure has some lying around. Its almost as if the west is the one that has has nothing to offer but obsolete cold war era aircraft.

Your sense of humour is good.

PUTIN IS SECRET HOMOSEXUAL

finally someone actually read the damn thing…

Peter Wallace

I think the US is bound not to hand on Federation aircraft. Some do , many don’t.

JIMI JAMES

You have not the courage to be straight to the factual point,don’t insult higher intellects loser

mario

Poles have received 48 F-16 block 52 fighters with AIM-120C missiles.

Jim Allen

That’s due to the fact there are no superior NATO jets. MiG-29 is equal, or superior to all Western fighter’s. MiG-29SMT is the ultimate upgrade version, 4++ gen. Sukhoi says his planes are just supersize MiG-29’s.
MiG-31 is still the world record holder for fastest fighter ever. Your case of anal-cranial inversion is one of the most severe I’ve encountered.

JIMI JAMES

YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ENGINEERING YET TOO GUTLES TO TRY TO DEAL WITH SPEED,gimp!

Phoron

He was reaching for the ‘screw in the lightbulb’ button instead

Michael

let the Pole dancers spend some billions in getting some F-whatever. That will help their IQ

Donald Moore

You really can’t fault the pilot. The Polish Government has been feeding all their people anti-Russian propaganda for years and when the Pilot saw a Russian jet in their airspace he automatically fired on it!

Liberal guy

Hahahahaha

jimmy

LOL!!!!!!!

yuri

pilot was distracted by LGBT amerikan pilot learning about superior Russian plane in training exercise

L du Plessis

Nato targets itself 🤣

Ragheadthefiendlyterrorist

Putin hacked the cannon to make it fire. Obviously!

Peter Wallace

There will be a Steele dossier out tomorrow that proves it with information he gained by telepathy with a pidgeon , a stool pidgeon.

Liberal guy

Hahahahaha
