    It happens. Crew error.
    By the way about the "Apache". I saw it in "live". Quietly, the parasite flies quickly. But their other helicopters are still thundering like .. And they do not shine with speed.

        It seems that the notorious "human factor" played a role here. The pilots overestimated their capabilities.

      Right. "Cobra" is heard on approach, long before it is on the head.
      And "Apache" only when it has already flown over.

      But Apache requires the perfect tech. service. And it’s beneficial to use it at night,
      when he sees the earth and shoots like in the afternoon.

        But Apache requires the perfect tech. service.

        Any equipment requires perfect service ... even the AK-47 ... but not always what it needs is the same as what it is.
        This raises the question, "what is the limit for forgiveness of mistakes" for our Hunter and Alligator ...

        "Cobra", yes, you can't see it, but you can already hear it. And the "Iroquois" is generally only for the militants to shoot. Thunders like a barrel from the mountain with jellies pushed. And speed! Fallout. You have to be blind so as not to get into it. There is no armor. about CH-53E. The miracle of hostile technology laughing Once I watched the latter lying on a lounger. He flew over the sky forcibly. But the only helicopter from which he was delighted is the "Apache" Like a strong rustle of leaves. By the way, in terms of noise, this is perhaps the only thing that our ka52 and mi 28 are still inferior to "Apaches."

      Well, yes, one plus only is that it flies quietly, quietly falls ... and you can bring it down from the usual single machine gun. no armor, glass-plexi glass,. all that is on it is its accuracy and noiselessness. the rest is upright.

            what does the crisis have to do with it, they don’t want to fly on them, they are constantly falling this Apache. but there are no others here and they fly, on what is there. and the pilots are not at all to blame if the cars are shit.

        interesting)) where the pilot error is visible on the video? when the helicopter stupidly lost traction and had to put it hard on the water, so as not to fall on the heads of the American marines sad helicopter shit! this is the third drop since 2010. 4 more were damaged before that. he has so many problems with this helicopter that it is time to start a catalog on his tricks. out of 12 turntables, 3 were irretrievably lost, and the pilots had nothing to do with it. our pilots are masters of their craft. and the technique is shit with a propeller.

    On one side, of course, we can talk about the pilot’s mistake, who did not calculate either the trajectory or the ability of the engines to unscrew the screws to the required speed in order to increase the lifting force. We can say that over water there is a layer of air highly saturated with water vapor, which completely changes the processes of interaction between the propeller blades and the medium, just as a bullet flying above the surface of the water changes its flight properties. But the most important thing is to say that it is necessary to change the propulsor itself, namely from open blades with highly inertial properties to turbines with a high speed of response to any changing properties in the medium.

      One part of the mechanism of the human brain is constructed in such a way that the saturation of knowledge based on life experience forms an associative perception. That is, experience is always an opportunity to compare new events with the novelty of current circumstances. However, the nature of physical events is so diverse in the dimension of its transformations. as energy interactions, that pilots need special intellectual preparation for the search for optimal solutions in the algorithm of their sequence, and not just in a single separate decision. Therefore, an increase in flight speeds of an aircraft, an increase in the density of information events, an increase in their tension and contrast require, moreover, coordination of the operation of mechanisms with the work of the brain. Replacing individual devices of augmented reality deprives the brain of the ability to accurately determine these decision algorithms. In general, simple teaching methods will also fail to solve similar problems as everyone else. Pilots are not children - they are also under a complex of subjective reasons affecting their consciousness, and therefore the decisions they make in extreme situations.

    Drew attention to the fall of Apache. Both in Greece and in Afghanistan (it still seems to me that in Pakistan) the helicopter crash occurred after the same maneuver. He is not a pilot himself and can eat specialists: is it possible to have a system in these accidents?

    21 September 2016 18: 10
    It seems to me that the Mi-28 had problems with the tail rotor gearbox. But Apache seems to have problems with the bearing blades (possibly geometry). Those. he has a systemic problem limiting the performance of some aerobatic figures. Maybe I'm wrong.
