Su-25 attack aircraft crashed in southern Bulgaria.

One of the 14 attack aircraft in service with Bulgaria crashed the day before in the south of the country. The combat aircraft was in fairly good condition, since it had recently undergone modernization in Belarus and was practically not operated. Nevertheless, as it turned out, we can talk about one of the attack aircraft that Bulgaria intended to transfer to Ukraine in the near future.

“The Military Prosecutor's Office of Sliven has taken over the investigation into the plane crash that took place this afternoon at the Bezmer airbase in southern Bulgaria. The accident happened during a training flight. For reasons unknown so far, the pilot lost control of the Su-25 attack aircraft, after which he ejected. The combat aircraft crashed and burned down completely. The pilot, taken to the Sofia military hospital, is in relatively good condition, said the prosecutor of the Sliven military district, Colonel Hristo Tinev. The pilot is a senior officer with great experience, - Radio Bulgaria reports.

According to a number of sources, the flight of the Bulgarian Su-25 attack aircraft itself was carried out as part of an inspection of the aircraft for transfer to Ukraine, however, the Bulgarian defense department has not yet officially commented on this information.
