Chronicle of the An-26 plane crash in Syria


6 March 2018 about 15 hours Moscow time, the Russian military transport aircraft An-26, belonging to the Air and Space Forces of the Russian Federation, was preparing to land at the Russian military base Khmeimim in Syria.



The aircraft took off from the Quires airfield (a suburb of Aleppo), and most likely carried out the transfer of troops, as evidenced by the fact that on board the military transport aircraft, in addition to the six crew members, there were 33 passengers.

Despite the fact that only a few seconds remained before the landing on the Russian military base of Khemeymim, the aircraft crashed in about 500 meters from the runway.

As a result of the incident, no one survived.


Preliminary versions of the crash of the An-26 in Syria



At the moment, it is known that specialists investigating the plane crash involving the Russian military transport aircraft An-26 will consider all possible versions of the tragedy. According to experts, there are mainly three main versions of what happened.


The bombardment of the An-26 aircraft


The version that the Russian military transport plane An-26 could be shot down, appeared one of the first, while experts are considering various options, in particular, it is reported that the aircraft could be shot down as if directly approaching the airbase Khmeimim , and during the flight through the areas of Syria, which still have the militants of radical terrorist organizations.



If the plane was actually shot down, then most likely it was used for small arms, however, to assert that this version is the main reason for the destruction of An-26, until the investigation is completed, it is not worth it.

In turn, it is important to clarify the fact that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the aircraft was not fired, however, experts believe that this version will still be considered in the framework of the ongoing investigation.


Technical fault



At the moment, the version of the fact that the Russian military transport plane An-26 crashed in Syria due to a technical malfunction is the main one. This is due primarily to the fact that the military transport aircraft An-26, which are in service with the Russian army, are already obsolete and in need of their soon replacement.

Among the main circumstances that could lead to a tragic catastrophe, experts consider the failure of the control system, however, it is likely that the catastrophe could also contribute to the simultaneous failure of two engines.


Unfavorable meteorological conditions



One of the versions of the 6 March 2018 tragedy involving the Russian military transport airplane An-26 is also considered unfavorable meteorological conditions, in particular, eyewitnesses report that a strong gusty wind was observed in the region of the Russian base of Khemeymim, which could well be the cause for wreck. no official confirmation of this information was found, however, given meteorological reports, the wind speed in the air base area reached 12-15 m / s.

And why is there no video of the landing of this airplane? I find something I can not. They say that it can be seen from the video that the aircraft STAFF was going to the landing and from a distance of about 500 m sharply pecked its nose. on ERB it seems.

Do not know. The truths are afraid of resonance in society. I do not understand one thing - why on the plane seat belts if everyone dies. Yes. And where else 8 died in the list

A car and the weather does not matter. Truth or who does not say.

Someone will say why they are still talking about 39 dead, but in the list of all 31 name ???
