The US strategic bomber B-52 lost its engine in flight

139
American media report that an emergency occurred during a planned training flight of the US Air Force B-52 strategic bomber. The materials say that one of the aircraft's engines came off in flight. The B-52 strategic bomber has 8 Pratt & Whitney TF33-P-3/103 engines. On the remaining aircraft, the aircraft was able to safely return to the US Air Force Minot airbase.


The US strategic bomber B-52 lost its engine in flight


The incident with the American strategic bomber occurred in the state of North Dakota. None of the crew members of the B-52 was injured. The report says that the strategic bomber did not carry any weapons on its board.

According to the latest data, there are no victims and destructions on the ground after the fall of the aircraft engine. In the emergency area, there are search teams made up primarily of the Minot air base personnel.

Another state of emergency with the B-52 in the United States caused a new wave of discussion about the fact that these machines have exhausted their resources. It must be recalled that in the United States strategic bombers of this model have been in operation for almost 65 years (since April 1952). In this case, the B-52 is still the main long-range bomber aviation USA.

Airbases with B-52 in the United States in addition to North Dakota are still located in Louisiana.

The previous strategic bomber incident occurred last May, when the B-52 crashed shortly after taking off from the Guam air base.

                And how many vigorous bombs the Americans lost, so they themselves do not know for sure.
                << Thus, a simple calculation shows that on the seabed there must now be somewhere around fifty lost nuclear warheads. Of course, given that, according to current estimates, more than 125 nuclear warheads have been built throughout history, this figure is probably a drop in the bucket. But nevertheless, I hope that the times when an accidentally dropped nuclear bomb could fall from the sky are still forever in the past. >>

          Well, if without backbiting and to be honest, then yes - the planes are far from new. They are the same age as our Tu-95. The last time the B-52 was modernized was over 20 years ago, as far as I know. Yes, and something tells me that they are watching those. the state is worse than we for "Bears". In other things, I have always been amazed at the design of the B-52 with its 8 engines ...

      Now it becomes clear why they are going to change the engines:
      It is assumed that the B-52 with new engines will serve in the US Air Force until 2060, that is, up to more than 100 years from the date of adoption.

        Every 48 months, B-52 aircraft undergo scheduled maintenance at repair and storage facilities, including preventive maintenance and verification of all on-board systems, as well as a partial modification and verification of avionics operation. The design of the aircraft is periodically inspected using non-destructive testing methods. In parallel with this, a limited number of aircraft are examined to monitor the appearance of fractures and fatigue cracks and to identify trends in this direction.

      And what's funny ? The Russian Air Force took an honorable second place in the ranking of the world's oldest aviation magazine Flight International, losing only to the United States. America surpasses the Russian Federation in the number of military aircraft by almost four times. The United States Air Force unequivocally gave the first place to Flight USA, noting that today this country has 78% of all combat-ready military aircraft created in the world. The second line was given by Flight International experts to the Russian Air Force.

          Chassis "bicycle" type - that is, with the location of the racks along the axis of the glider in the bow and stern with supporting "parking" racks at the ends of the wings. With a fairly narrow track and such a wingspan (56,39 m), additional racks are simply necessary. By the way, the designers removed the dependence of the machine on weather conditions during take-off and landing by the fact that the design of the landing gear wheels allows them to be installed at an angle to the center axis of the aircraft body. Thus, having received information about the speed and direction of the wind, the pilots, using the calculation table, can arrange the wheels so that the aircraft moves somewhat sideways when running along a strip.

    Still, news, this is not a strong point of the site. You will never get complete information.
    "The American strategic b-52 bomber fell off during a training flight," Defense News reports, citing a representative of the US Air Force.

    The incident occurred in North Carolina, in the vicinity of the Minot Air Force Base. Pilots were able to land the plane (it is equipped with eight TF33-P-3 / 103 turbo engines), no one was injured in the incident. B-52 flew without ammunition.

    Debris was discovered 40 kilometers northeast of the base in an uninhabited area. An investigation is being conducted into the fact of the incident, the circumstances of the loss of the engine by the plane are being clarified.

    The B-52 missile carrier has been in service with the US Air Force since 1955. There are 74 such bombers in the fleet. They are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. "

      This is after the fall of the engine, the area was depopulated. Well, who else but the Americans should know that their flyers are mistaken through time and hammer on their own. So someone choked where, out of harm's way without waiting for a second gift.

    I recall an old toast-joke:
    A boy was born, but instead of a belly button he had a bolt? !!! While small, - the parents went to the doctors. The answer is that this is not known to science. He became a kid - he pushed himself: the girls laugh, do not give. As a result: I spent half my life searching for healing, traveled the whole world. In the end, they prompted some shaman in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Arrives there, already an elderly man. Shows. The shaman takes the 8-10 open-end wrench and turns the bolt away !!! At the same moment, the peasant fell off J. so drink in order not to look for extra adventures on his M laughing

    By the way, the Americans upgraded their B-52s to turbojet versions, and our 95s "Carcasses" are still turboprop pterodactyls with engines that became obsolete under Khrushchev. Even before the air defense detects them, they will be detected by the locals by the howl of antediluvian engines.

    And Obama made a statement in this regard that it was a Russian rocket flying by that tore off the engine of a B-52? Such a statement would be a worthy final chord of his "presidency."

    Yeah ... But even 20 years ago, they dreamed of changing the "pratts" for "Rolls-Royces" so that it was not 8, but 4. Either they regretted money, or "leavened patriotism" did not give laughing

    I saw a similar case with a passenger on TV: After that, the engine was lifted by a lift, the pylon hit - a microcrack. The engine came off after take-off

    The materials say that one of the engines came off the plane in flight.
    Even the engines protest against the aggressive policies of the Macington macaques [b] [/ b] laughing
