Aircraft chashes mig 23


A MiG-23UB fighter jet crashed during the Yankee Air Museum's Thunder over Michigan air show on Sunday, August 14, 2023. 

The plane was performing a demonstration flight when it experienced a malfunction and crashed into the parking lot of the Waverly on the Lake Apartments in Belleville, Michigan. The two pilots on board successfully ejected from the aircraft before the crash. They were taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution, but did not suffer any serious injuries. No one on the ground was injured in the crash.

The FAA is investigating the cause of the crash.

 The MiG-23UB is a Soviet-designed fighter jet that was first produced in the 1970s. It is a two-seat aircraft that is used for training and ground attack missions. The plane has been involved in a number of accidents in the past, but this is the first time that one has crashed at an air show in the United States.

The crash has prompted Thunder Over Michigan organizers to cancel the rest of the air show. The museum said in a statement that it is "deeply saddened" by the crash and that its "thoughts and prayers" are with the pilots and their families.

The crash is a reminder of the dangers of air shows. Even though these events are carefully planned and executed, there is always the risk of accidents. It is important to remember that these pilots are putting their lives on the line every time they take to the skies.
