An audio recording of the conversations of the pilots who participated in the incident in the sky over the Tver region with ground services appeared on the Web.

A recording of the negotiations between the pilots and ground services during the incident was published on the Internet, during which on September 22, over the Tver region, a Su-35S fighter, participating in a training battle, shot down another fighter, the Su-30M2, with a cannon shot. The car fell into the forest, but both pilots managed to eject. In fact, it was planned that the Su-35S will take a photo shot, but it turned out to be real.

- Report what happened? - a question from the ground.

- At 348 the cannon went off, - the answer.

Then the voice informant Su-30M2 began to send information about the failure of the aircraft's hydraulic system and loss of control.

- Failure of the hydraulic system. In the absence of pressure, create conditions for leaving

The pilots decide to eject.

- Jumped.

“I’m watching,” a voice from the ground .

- Accepted, two domes.

- Have you successfully ejected?

- Exactly so.

The coordinates of the crew that ejected, as well as the location of the crash, are heard. Later, a command is given to the crew of another fighter:

- 348, let's get to the point.

The Su-35S pilot confirms that he is carrying out this command.

- Are the domes stable? - they ask him from the ground.

- Yes.

Then the person who communicated with the pilots from the ground reports to his superior that the gun of the Su-35S went off, but both pilots managed to escape...
