Actually it's fourth one since May, not third - one F-22, one F-35 and one F-15 crashed before (plus one Navy F-18F in the same time period).

Afghan air force Super Tucano crashed in an area controlled by the Taliban carrying a US crewmember on board (it could have been shot down). It seems that the injured US pilot was rescued however it is not clearl if there was a second pilot and if so, if he was saved as well.

Slovak MOD released the final statement regarding the investigation of the accident of one of the few operational MiG-29 from last year. The report basically confirms what was circulating around already at the time of the accident. The plane simply run out of fuel due to a rapid change of weather and subsequent inability to land on Sliač airbase. Instead the pilot tried to reach Bratislava airport but he didn't have enough fuel for that.

Slovak MOD declassified another investigation report. This time from the worst air accident in the history of independent Slovakia. In 2006 an An-24 carrying KFOR soldiers from Pristina, Kosovo, crashed into a hill near Košice airport. 42 died, one soldier surived. According to the report the most probable reason for the accident was an error of the crew which resulted into a controlled flight into the terrain. They executed the landing in purely visual manner without paying enough attention to the instruments which according to the report worked well.
