Su-24MR Crash (photos, videos, names)

No comments, the article speaks for itself...I think all of the details anyone would need are here...interesting that this plane was also involved in a prior accident.  I'm also going to include a whole list of sources...

1TV video says that "Su-24 flights have been suspended"  (direct link to that video is here).  Also shows search and rescue operations being conducted by a DOSAAF Mi-8TV RF-93103.

Video first...I translated the parts not in the article...

The video report adds to this article:  (:56) The aircraft crashed near the village of Volgodonskoy and it is not known if the pilots survived.  (1:01) The aircraft tookoff from Marinovka, and in 2011 at this airfield this exact same airframe during landing caught fire and the pilots successfully ejected.

According to a source at Marinovka Airfield, where the Su-24 tookoff from, the aircrew did not report any problems during flight

В Волгоградской области разбился Су-24МР

Тактический разведывательный самолет Су-24МР Минобороны РФ разбился практически на берегу Карповского водохранилища. Самолет пропал с радаров около 11:20. Во время ЧП на борту находились командир экипажа Игорь Кукарцев и майор Анатолий Волосков. Как отмечают очевидцы, пилоты сумели катапультироваться, однако их пока не нашли
— Проходил учебно-тренировочный полет воздушной разведки погоды, самолет потерпел крушение во время посадки, — сообщил LifeNews источник, — борт обнаружен, ведутся поисковые работы.

Подполковник Игорь Кукарцев командует разведывательным подразделением в составе авиации Южного военного округа. Высококлассные пилоты-разведчики под командованием Кукарцева выполняли воздушную разведку на Су-24МР во время обеих Чеченских кампаний и конфликта в Грузии в 2008 году. В их задачи входило слежение за действиями противника и вскрытие систем ПВО, что сопряжено с высочайшим риском.
