on 2 July 2019, the Военно-воздушные силы Украины (Ukrainian Air Force) lost an L-39ZA in an accident near Starovirivka, Kharkiv region, around 16:00 hours local time.

An L-39, the jet trainer crashed during a training flight in Kharkiv region.

It appears the L-39 Albatros got caught in the wake turbulence of another aircraft flying nearby, which caused the trainer aircraft to violently roll and the pilot eventually losing control altogether.

He managed to eject safely.

Given the location/region it is likely the Albatros belonged to  203rd Training Aviation Brigade (203 TrAB) of Kharkiv Air Force University. A serial is yet to become known.

The preliminary report says that the incident was caused by the engine malfunction.

L-39s are the training fighter jets mainly used by Ukraine’s Air Force.
