Another Russian Transport Military Aircraft Crashes

In a recent unfortunate incident, another Russian transport military aircraft crashed. The aircraft involved in the accident was an Il-76MD heavy transport aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces. The incident occurred near Dushanbe, Tajikistan. After the crash landing, the aircraft caught fire. Despite the severity of the crash, the crew members were able to evacuate the plane.


In a separate report, it was mentioned that the plane exploded in a massive fireball while it was on the runway. The explosion occurred while the plane was carrying an unspecified military cargo. There were reportedly eight individuals on board who were moving this unspecified military cargo. They managed to escape from the craft before it burst into flames.


The aftermath of the incident left a burning Russian defense ministry aircraft at Ayni airbase near the capital Dushanbe in ex-Soviet republic Tajikistan, also known as Gissar air base. This is not an isolated incident. There have been similar accidents in the past. In fact, this is the second Il-76 to explode on the runway in just a month.


The plane's registration number was initially not disclosed. However, it is believed to be RF-86900 – used previously to supply Putin’s war effort via Belarus. Details of its cargo have not been disclosed 'for wartime political reasons', according to a source. The investigation into this incident is ongoing. As we await further details, our thoughts are with those affected by this tragic event.
