Yuri Gagarin air crash details emerge

 

 

New details have emerged about the air crash on 27 March 1968 that killed Yuri Gagarin - the first man in space.

 

Fellow cosmonaut Alexey Leonov claims an "unauthorised" plane flew too close to Gagarin's fighter jet, sending it into a spin.

 

Gagarin and his flight instructor Vladimir Seryogin died when their MiG-15 went down near the town of Novoselovo, about 90km from Moscow.

This is not really new. Leonow told this story since years. I have read it in two books and saw some years ago one interview were he told the story that two Su-7 caused Gagarins MiG crash.
