A Su-25’s crew accidentally launched a missile near a transport aircraft (video)
N’DJAMENA, (BM) – The Su-25 attack aircraft, under currently unknown circumstances, launched an uncontrolled aircraft missile into the French military transport aircraft C-130, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing news agency Aviapro.
The incident occurred at one of the military air bases in Chad, while the fired rocket passed just a few meters from the French military aircraft, almost destroying it.
In the presented video, allegedly made by an outdoor surveillance camera, you can see that the incident occurred during the maintenance of the aircraft.
Obviously, due to careless actions, the weapons of the Su-25 attack aircraft were activated, after which a spontaneous launch took place. By a lucky coincidence, the victims and the injured were avoided, however, local news agencies reported some material damage, in particular, there is unconfirmed information that the rocket destroyed one of the buildings of the military airfield infrastructure.
What kind of rocket in question is still unknown, however, experts say that due to a flagrant violation of safety precautions, the tragedy was avoided only by a miracle.
