Do not worry, friends, if for about 2 weeks I will not appear here because I am going on vacation in the north-eastern parts of Poland (I will also visit the Russian Kaliningrad region if there are no obstacles)
 
Some sad news, today (06 July 2018) one of Polish MiG29(nr. 4103) crashed. pilot used his ejection seat but unfortunately died. Name wasn't told officialy so i wont write it.
He had totally 800hrs flown, and 500hrs on MiG29. Rumored cause for now is stall, which is kinda strange because last crash had similar cause but pilot didn't eject(and survived)(~1year ago).
Last evening his unit posted photos before training

This is a very sad news. I was then traveling about 50 km from this place, I learned about the accident from the radio. This is already the second Mig 29 accident in a year, which is strange, because MIG 29 has the opinion of a safe aircraft. I feel sorry for the family and the closest pilot. Rest in peace.

Very Sad News, RIP brave pilot
 
On 9-10 June as part of the "SABER-STRIKE-18" exercise, in the Chełmno area, one of the tasks of engineering support was to organize and maintain crossings. Subunits of the 5th Engineering Regiment from Szczecin, to which sub-divisions were subordinated from the 2nd Engineering Regiment from Inowrocław, the 3rd Road and Bridge Battalion from Chełmno and 1 Road and Bridge Battalion from Dęblin received the task of supporting the moving troops of the 12th Mechanized Brigade. On June 9, soldiers of the 25th Air Cavalry Brigade (25BKPow) conducted a helicopter landing on the eastern and western banks of the Vistula River in Chełmno, near the axis of the crossing with the task of securing the planned crossing of troops across the river. The air insurance was provided by two Mi-24 assault helicopters from the 1st Aviation Brigade of the Land Forces and two W-3 Sokół helicopters from 25BKPow. On June 10, from the early hours of the morning, engineering troops joined the equipment and maintained the ferry crossing on the Vistula.
