Russian Sukhoi 30 Fighter Jet Crashes Into Residential Building in Irkutsk, Siberia Sunday

A Russian Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter jet has crashed into a residential building in the city of Irkutsk in Siberia today. Two crew-members died as the jet went straight down into the apartment tower. A group of children on a nearby playground reacted, but were unhurt.

Reportedly, the Plane had just taken off from a repair shop nearby. The 30 year old plane had been flight certified, apparently in error.

The Sukhoi Su-30 (Russian: Сухой Су-30; NATO reporting name: Flanker-C/G/H) is a twin-engine, two-seat supermaneuverable fighter aircraft developed in the Soviet Union by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. It is a multirole fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air interdiction missions.
