Military Review

F-35 began to fall apart in the air

87
The US Air Force acknowledged that an element of the 35 size fuselage on 30 centimeters fell off in one of the fifth-generation fighter aircraft F-60A Kadena airbase (Japan), reports Lenta.ru report message resource Defense News.




Before the flight, they exterminated the test without fail, so the US military reasonably suggested that the fuselage element was lost in the air. Missing parts found after landing the F-35.

“The incident occurred on November 30 2017 during a training flight a hundred kilometers east of Okinawa, at the same time Japanese media wrote about it, in particular, the Nippon News Network,” but the US military leadership acknowledged the fact that December 4 only happened.

Earlier it was reported that the US Air Force over the past few months recorded a "significant surge in" physiological episodes "(cases of inexplicable deterioration in the health of pilots) accompanying the operation of F-35 fighters."

Recall, the F-35 Lightning II is a family of 5-generation multi-purpose fighters, which the American company Lockheed Martin has been developing and releasing since 2001. The machine is available in 3-x options: A (normal for the Air Force), B (with a short takeoff and vertical landing) and C (deck).

        There is another question.
        Technological hatches, due to under-locks, lose both us and them. We have such incidents strictly For Office Use. They immediately blow the whole world, they take off their iPhones and upload them to the network. Here either their command does not see anything wrong with this, or their Specialists instead of picking up service, picking their nose.

          Sometimes hatches lost and then they lived and served. No one was shot or hanged. The maximum that threatened the culprit is a warning about an incomplete official. And if you quietly put the hatch in place after-flight training, then you can do without consequences. So when we had a blister of a radio operator gunner vomit on one of the sides in flight, there was a lot of noise, but they recognized it - CIT.

            This is how much Chassis liquor is needed so that the propeller is not screwed as it should?

    Recalled a story:

    Revised pictures. I remembered the story. I tell you.
    We are flying to the Russian-American exercises “vigilant eagle”))))) (yes, there were earlier exercises together with them). The route is long. Three intermediate landing refueling. The performance check of the systems and equipment is completed, the complex is turned off, the calculation is on relaxation, we are leaving on the second deck in the technical compartment to stretch our legs. We fly to Yekaterinburg. Height is about 3000 meters. We talk with a friend, drink tea)))))) do not touch anyone.
    Suddenly a light pop (not loud vaabsche) and the plane rocked slightly. We looked at each other, looked into the salon, everyone was sitting, they weren’t running, they don’t put on parachutes, in general, it’s quiet and smooth. HZ what is it. There is no kipish, and okay. They sat down.
    All from the plane and immediately to the edge of the concrete floor, there is no “ballast discharge” - there is no toilet on our “swallow”, and you have to plow open spaces for 4-5 hours, or even a little more.
    Karoche. One warrior began to go around the plane and shouted “Commander, our hatch flew off” /)))). Well, the hatch and the hatch, flew away so flew away ... We’re going to look, and there ... A whole hood from the ube (on-board power plant) fell off and also demolished the antennas and poked holes while flying off (I hope we flew over the forest then)))) and nobody caught our hood.

    In general, during the flight, no one, did not notice anything from the crew (apart from a slight wiggle, which only my friend and I paid attention to, and that was because there was cotton).

    Close the hatch, turn three bolts clockwise a half turn. And this happens. Sometimes the hoods are not fixed. In 85. Flight U-Ude-Nizhneangarsk. The engine cowl broke during landing. The reason was that only 22 bolts were latched ! I then flew home on this flight. We sat down without any problems.

      On hatches, as a rule, not bolts, but locks. There is one with locking screws - I pressed the rod and turned it half a turn, but there are "push" type keys. In extreme cases, hatches, where you do not often need to look, are screwed, not bolted.

          Vague doubts torment me that msatrasas will allow you to get so deep, maybe they will only change what is on the surface, otherwise the meaning of f-35 is lost. Imha.

        Not. 911 and 913 are still extreme. At the beginning of the non-Jewish year should arrive in 140. The squadron is still mixed.

      And what do you mean by that? Is everyone now in Syria full of Tryndets and Russian Aerospace Forces, including? Euroaviation (in the sense of Jewish) on these pepelats now dominates the sky of Syria? laughing

    It feels like the entire F-35 project is the insidious hand of a bloody gebni! ))) The project came out surprisingly raw and incredibly voracious financially. And if the problems with the on-board software are clear, inevitable and still solvable, then everything else is surprising. Well, you solve the problems, and then continue the release, so no! We’ll make a bunch of planes, and then bring it to mind with a file. Not long ago the news was that one of the NATO countries bought (it seems Great Britain) some of these fighters, but the hangars for them will be ready only in a couple of years - the curtain
