Russia: June 16, 2001



Russian troops in Chechnya have found the wreckage of two Su-25 aircraft rebels claim to have shot down on the 14th. The black boxes were recovered, which may indicate if the aircraft were shot down, or simply collided. The Su-25 is a ground attack aircraft similar to the US A-10. The Su-25 is built to take a lot of ground fire and keep going.
