The Last Flight of Russian aircraft

Description

Its a calm Saturday afternoon. Were at aviation festival near Samara. The pilot flying the prototype is the famous Russian aircraft designer Igor Vakhrushev. What no one knows, however, is that this will be his last flight. Everythings going according to plan. Heres the take-off, the plane levels off and passes the aerodrome. There are a few seconds of calm before things go horribly wrong. It seems that the tail of the plane had been damaged, perhaps as the plane was transported onto the field. The plane literally falls out of the sky from about 90 feet (up). Sadly, despite local medical technicians best efforts, Vakrushev did not survive. His legacy does, however, as many planes that he designed still fly today.
