Twice hit by SAMs (second time could be friendly fire). One of two Su-25s lost on Aug.9. Pilot was Col. Sergei Kobylash, Regiment Commander; ejected safely and later awarded the title Hero of the Russian Federation. It seems that South Ossetian officials mistakenly claimed this aircraft as Georgian.
