During experimental aviation in Egypt, the MiG-29M fighter collision was a problem in the aircraft control system. This was announced by the representative of the Egyptian Defense Secretary Tamer al-Rifai on Facebook.
United Aircraft Building Corporation technical experts will soon go to Egypt to help investigate the accident.

A month ago, in the Moscow region, a MiG-29 fighter hit the Gromov LII. There were two pilots on board, managed to get out. According to preliminary information, the event caused one engine to fire.
Recall that the MiG-29M and MiG-29M2 fighters are among the most modern aircraft in the Egyptian Air Force. They are equipped with advanced radars and optical positioning stations that allow even small-scale aerial targets to be detected at long distances. Overall, Egypt has acquired some 50 such aircraft. Egyptian armed forces have been using MiG aircraft for more than 60 years.
The ability to climb up to the height of 20,000 meters ranges from the third-generation vehicle destruction zone and fourth-generation warriors.
United Aircraft Corporation delivered over 90 combat aircraft last year to customers. To date, the MiG-25 is in service with the Air Force for Algeria, Syria, North Korea and Libya.
