A Russian Su-30 fighter jet that crashed during a training flight in Russia’s Tver Region on September 22, was shot down by accident, Russian state-run news agency TASS reported citing informed sources.

“Preliminarily, the cause of the emergency is the accidental hit of a shell in the Su-30 during an exercise. The shot was fired by another aircraft,” the source said.

The incident did not led to any casualties. Both pilots safely ejected from the warplane before it crashed.

According to REN TV, the second fighter was performing the training flight together with the Su-35. According to the plan, the fighter jet was supposed to make a photo shooting – to photograph the pursued aircraft from the camera after entering the target. Instead, however, the warplane fired a shot from a cannon. REN TV says that a possible cause of this could be a technical malfunction.
