    First of all "I CONDOLE THE DEATH OF THE TWO BRAVE SOLDIERS"....

    But then was it a pilot error or any technical glitch?

    How far has the investigating agency gone through the evidence?

    If it was a crash due to technical glitch then we have introspect Su-27UBK.......

    These types of accidents do happen.

    Very sad.

    Think of the unfortunate families and their grief!

    It doesn't appear to be the failure of ejection seat.

    Several news reports with sources in PLAAF have said that the pilots were attempting to safely crash land the Flanker, but failed. I guess wrong choice by the pilots did them in.
    You cannot blame them though. Maybe they wanted to insure no civillian was harmed or property destroyed. Add to that their confidence in landing the plane and they gave their lives in something they believed in.
