Irkutsk 23 October 2022: Sukhoi Su-30 dove into a building, at least two killed....

Please feel free to move this but "Russian 'plane crashes" doesn't seem to merit a new section:-

"A Russian military plane (reported as a Sukhoi) crashed into Irkutsk residential building on Sunday morning according to Russian state media."

Re: TLwG 74 from Neuburg to Pitch Black 2022

The westbound 54+08 was one of a number of Lw A400s transiting my area yesterday, Friday.
