Russia’s most advanced fighter jet crashes, pilot survives

Russian officials say a top-of-the-line fighter jet has crashed on a training mission but that its pilot bailed out safely. Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation said in a statement Tuesday that the Su-57 fighter came down during a training flight near Komsomolsk-on-Amur in the country’s far east. The Su-57, which made its maiden flight in 2010, is Russia’s most advanced fighter plane.
