This purports to be a sukhoi 34 in a current conflict zone..

I thought these aircraft were designed to be able to recover from such regimes? I think I see flames from an angine partway through, could this be a flameout with insufficient airflow to relight?

So many options, including battle damage. Hard to relight an engine that has a bunch of holes in it, for instance.

The aircraft might also have been evacuated by the pilots (already ejected). Anyway, you don't relight an engine during a spin. You get out of it and then look forward to the engine flamed out procedure.

If you can definitively positively identify from that camera footage you’ve got better eye sight than I have.

Does SU-34 suffer from asymmetric thrust as badly as F-14 Tomcat?
