Romanian Air Force IAR-99 crashes, killing pilot

Post by gvla on Thu Aug 23, 2012 11:45 am

A Romanian Air Force IAR-99 Falcon trainer aircraft has crashed whilst conducting a routine training exercise, killing the pilot and injuring others.
The pilot was killed upon impact, however the trainer was able to eject from the aircraft prior to the crash. Emergency responders arrived on the scene and treated him for his injuries, with local authorities confirming him to remain in a critical condition.
Several fire crews were called to the scene to extinguish the resulting fire, with some reports alleging the crash to have occurred approximately 2km from Craiova airport in a housing area.
Craiova airport technical director Adrian Predescu informed local media of the crash, confirming that the aircraft crashed during a routine training flight.
"There's been a plane crash. A military plane, crashed during a training exercise near the airport on the north side. From what it seems the plane is totally destroyed. One of the pilots died, and the other is receiving care from SMURD," said Predescu.
The IAR-99 aircraft, noted for its good handling, made its first flight in December 1985 and has been in service with the Romanian Air Force since 1989. The latest variant of the aircraft, the IAR-99C, was first delivered to the Romanian Air Force in 2001.
