Re: Military Jet Crashes In Libyan City of Tobruk *video*

Technical failure is thought to be the cause, it was a Mig-21, introduced in 1959: it's strange that it was still able to fly, not that it crashed.
This one crashed (killing three) during a memorial ceremony for ANOTHER pilot who died when his plane crashed, killing him, a couple of days before.

Black boxes will likely answer what really happened.

Operation Dignity jet crashes during Tobruk flyover

An Operation Dignity jet has crashed, killing its pilot and others, during a flyover at Tobruk Air Base.

In a cruel twist of fate, the plane crashed during a memorial ceremony for another pilot who died when his plane crashed, killing him, just four days ago. Both crashes are believed to be the result of technical failures.

An Air Force officer at Tobruk airbase told the Libya Herald that the Mig jet crashed into a building as a result of the fault. There are a reports that a young boy was also killed by the impact. It is not known if this is the full extent of the casualties.

The pilot killed int the accident this afternoon has been identified as Rafa Al-Farani. Farani was in his fifties and lived in Tobruk with his family. He was originally from Benghazi.

The crash took place during a service of remembrance for Air Force officer Ibrahim Al-Manifi who died on Saturday when his aircraft suffered a technical fault over Beida while flying from Tobruk to Benghazi.

In July a Mig jet fighter being used by the Operation Dignity crashed into waste ground in Kuwaifiya in Benghazi. However, no one was hurt after the the pilot was able to eject safely. Operation Dignity said at the time the crash was due to a technical problem although Ansar Al-Sharia claimed it had shot down the jet.

Don't know that very plane, i meant that Mig21 was introduced in 1959 (first flight in 1956): basically, it's based on a 60 years old technology. Actually, while obsolete, is not that bad plane, russian still have 800 Mig 21 fishbed: however, many of the planes belonging to Free Libyan Air Force have some serious maintenance issues, i would never fly with any of them.

Sorry, I meant the pilot being in his 50's and still flying for the military.
I don't know exactly how things work in Libya, but here he'd have been phased out in his mid to late 30's. (I'm sure there are some pilots older than that, but I haven't met more than one.)

Add age into mechanical-old plane issues and you have a problem. Vision changes, weight, reaction time.
