The location where a Bulgarian Air Force MiG-29 fighter aircraft crashed in the Black Sea in the early hours of June 9 during a nighttime training exercise has been confirmed.
Debris from the crashed aircraft is scattered across a large area on the sea bed. The black box has not been found, Commander of the Navy, Rear Admiral Kiril Mihailov, told a briefing for the media on June 17.
We are checking what could have gone wrong to lead to the MiG-29 crash. Hypotheses - as much as you want, speculation - as much as you want. It is clear that something sudden and unexpected has happened, what is it that the ongoing investigation should show, the Minister of Defense Georgi Panayotov told BNT today.
The Atlantic Council of Bulgaria demanded the suspension of all MiG-29 aircraft flights repaired by the Russian Aircraft Building Corporation and the immediate launch of a detailed quality check of the MiG-29 repairs carried out by a team of experts from NATO countries and Alliance partner countries.
