Russian Sukhoi skids into Mediterranean

Moscow: A Russian Sukhoi Su-33 fighter jet skidded off the country's sole aircraft carrier deployed in the Mediterranean after completing a combat mission in Syria but the pilot successfully ejected, the Russian Defence Ministry said on Monday.

"After a combat mission in Syria, the fighter jet rolled off the deck while landing on the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov," the ministry said in a statement. The pilot was immediately taken on board the aircraft carrier, Xinhua news agency reported.

The accident was caused by a broken cable of the aircraft's arresting gear, according to the statement. It was the second accident involving Admiral Kuznetsov in a month, since the aircraft carrier arrived in the Mediterranean to provide support to Russia's air campaign in Syria.

On November 15, a MiG-29 fighter jet crashed during a training mission as it approached the aircraft carrier for a landing.
