سانحه برای شکارچی متاسفانه صبح امروز شاهد سانحه برای شکاری رهگیر اف-۱۴ تامکت نیروی هوایی ارتش ملی ایران بودیم که منجر به اجکت هر ۲ خلبان شد. هواپیما در حال امرجنسی لندینگ از باند منحرف شد. خلبان بدلیل بازنشدن ارابه فرود هواپیما درخواست امرجنسی لندینگ کرده بود. خلبان و افسر تسلیحات (سرهنگ اقدامی و سرگرد عربی) هر ۲ به سلامت اجکت کردند. اخبار تکمیلی متعاقبا ارسال خواهد شد.
It is said that the IRIAF only have some twelve to fourteen operational F-14A and F-14AMs left. The IRIAF faces large problems to keep their Tomcats in the air (the AM version is locally modified and equipped with new avionics and multi-function displays in the cockpit, countermeasure systems, radar warning receivers and an inertial navigation system).
This is developing a story so till now information about the crash in very limited
We will Update it and soon as we get more info
