SU-57 crashes during routine flight tests...

Thanks to S300V4 for the news!

via RT.
One of Russia’s cutting-edge Su-57 fighter jets has crashed during routine factory test flights near the Komsomolsk-on-Amur aircraft plant in the Far East. The pilot ejected safely and was picked up by a Mi-8 rescue helicopter.
The aircraft involved in the incident belonged to the manufacturer and was undergoing a series of flight tests some 110 kilometers of Dzyomgi air base in Russia's Khabarovsk region.

There were no casualties or damage on the ground, the manufacturer confirmed in a brief statement. The crashed jet's black boxes are yet to be recovered.

Hmm.  What happened with this I wonder.  Military Aviation is inherently dangerous and shit happens but this will be shouted to the rooftops by F-35 supporters.

They got word out quick, and I hope they're as quick with an explanation of the "hows and whys"...
