Defence Minister: All decisions from the investigation of the MiG-29 crash have been correct

“All decisions from the investigation of the MiG-29 crash, in which lieutenant colonel Valentin Terziev was killed, have been correct,” Minister of Defence Georgi Panayotov said at a press conference.

Valentin Terziev’s wife Dimitrina Popova asked: If it is not human error and if there is no technical failure of the aircraft, what does “loss of spatial orientation” mean, and why is that not pilot error?
“It would be an error if the pilot was aware of the situation but had not taken action,” the Defence Ministry officials explained. “After striking the target and shifting his gaze inside the cabin, the pilot must check the position of the aircraft, and he has not done that.” /BGNES
