          Just the opposite. Airplane - take from storage. Two trained pilots - no. The point is that the pilots are in the red - much better than the old plane. And here both that and another.
          Well, Tolstoyans note. If it comes to a big conflict, it is these pilots who will bomb them at home. Toch pity them is clearly not worth it. am

            The US is not our allies and not even a neutral country, they are enemies to us and this is not our decision, but theirs ... Their generals urge to kill as many Russians as possible, their instructors teach and arm terrorists in Syria and Iraq, nationalists in Ukraine ... So what should we worry about them ?! I see no reason for hypocrisy, I am glad that every American military aircraft crashed, because it is quite possible that very soon they will have to be shot down over Russia ...

          Interestingly, there are always such people here - “I feel sorry for the pilots” - phew, it's disgusting. Personally, I don’t feel sorry for them because - this is our enemy, and the enemy cannot be spared. am And the fact that our authorities now call them "partners" should not confuse anyone. We must take time and focus. Will there be a war with them or not, I do not know. There will be no war only if we are strong. And if we are weak, then the war WILL BE EXACTLY. For they do not fight against a strong enemy. I have the honor. soldier

      It is not enough to stay alive, it is necessary for the pilot to return to duty after bailout. Our systems are precisely geared towards this, and there are no equal bailouts systems for this indicator. Kowtow to Guy Ilyich Severin!

        How the card will lie down - it's about the American bailout system. On Severinsky systems, more than 95% do not just remain alive, but return to duty, fully suitable for further flights. Not to mention the bailout modes.

          Again. Ejection is a dangerous and not healthy thing. Overloads adversely affect the state of the body as a whole and the spine in particular, regardless of whether it is a highly spiritual catapult or a bourgeois one. On the 10 of February 2018 of the two of our pilots ejected from the F-16. One immediately returned to duty, the other recovering from shrapnel wounds. On the other hand, in Kulbakino, the Tu-22 crew ejected during take-off. No one survived.

          Total how the card will fall. hi

            I agree with overloads, they reach 21 units ... And the spine and internal organs suffer ..
            Usually, first after the bailout, a medical examination, then a vacation, then again the VLK and usually the suspension from flights (but not from service) for six months with the next VLK and only then a decision is made on access to flights .. And the fact that your pilot was immediately put on the plane they wrote somewhere that he had a flight with the commander), this is nonsense, or PR, or you don’t protect your pilots like that ...
            On Tu 22 the ancient rescue system of CT 1M, no need to compare ... Some kind of incomprehensible example you brought ..
            Today's K 36 DM series ... almost 100% crew salvage.
            F18 fell 1,5 km to the strip, engine fire, a small height ...
            I dare to suggest that they catapulted with a big roll and at a low height, they simply "smeared" on the surface of the water .. the imperfection of the chair. This is my guess //

      Apparently drowned or sharks, judging by the statement on Twitter the US Navy.
      “We are sad to inform that both pilots recognized dead. We pray for their families, "

      If recognized as dead and not dead, then the bodies were not found ...aviators have been declared deceased. . This is how the phrase is translated from Twitter, according to my poor knowledge of English.

          the plane is not visually destroyed catastrophically. and plus shallow water ... everything is not clear ... maybe they catapulted at too low a height, parachutes could not absorb the blow to the ground.

      You are sitting in a chair to which a rocket is attached. And you start from an airplane that flies at a speed of 480 km / h. Yes, the rocket engine is really attached to the chair. He pushes you out of the plane and carries another 60 meters through the air on a jet thrust. In general, gaining altitude with acceleration in 22 g. If we compare with the rides, then there the maximum acceleration is 2 g. I feel like I’m one and a half tons in weight. Legs, back and ass are heavy. Acceleration presses me into the back of the chair, tries to bend into an arc - forces me to bury my forehead in my knees.

    Then just don’t spew curses on the part of the gloating of others when Russia is in grief. And the military man is forced. And judging by your rhetoric of our artillerymen and flyers, you also need to dunk in the liquid, alkhan yurt, bamut and a bunch of places. fulfill the order. in peacetime at that time it was possible to go for 2 years of a diesel engine.

    Mr. Gozman !!! You have mixed up the site. You need to Echo Moscow.

        It is known that in 2017, the crews of the aircraft of this squadron took part in the bombing of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

        This is not just a neighbor, it is a murderer who killed a peasant for money, but that the Nazis all said in captivity amicably and didn’t absolve them of responsibility for their deeds.

    The hornet car is good and reliable. If the catapult worked and the pilots were not shot while landing, they survive. Most likely the plane crashed on the deck. but it is unlikely.

    Again in the comments there are those who rejoice at the fact that the neighbor "cow died"! You can’t express condolences; nobody is hot and cold from them! I myself do not express them ..., and to whom ?? But frothing from the mouth gloating and rejoicing in someone else's misfortune - this is the height of cynicism! I understand that now is not that time, but I think that things like nobility and generosity still remain in the minds and souls of Russian people! Some infantile shortcomings should be ashamed !!! Turn on your head and be prudent!

          Russian is my native language and it disturbs me when this great language is humiliated. As for the dictation, it’s a sin to conceal, the lowest marks, fours, I just had the language. It is interesting that I had 2 teachers in language and literature, both Jewish, but they taught me to love and respect this Language. Almost like in Zhvanetsky:

        In the off-duty time and outside the ranks, officers can address each other not only by military rank, but also by name and patronymic. In everyday life, officers are allowed to use the affirmative expression “the officer’s word” and when saying goodbye to each other, it is allowed to say “honor I have” instead of “goodbye”. This is from the charter. Our Charter. We, professor, do not teach Hebrew. But you do not teach us Russian. Good?

      What are you blaming the gods for? And when our guys 39 people in Syria recently crashed, did you also remember your God and honor ???? Or were there everyone so sinful that your god punished them themselves, their children and their mothers ??? I once heard how in one of the sermons, Patriarch Kirill said that the Great Patriotic War was sent to the Russian land as a punishment for the years of godlessness in which the country lived. It turns out according to his logic the Wehrmacht - is God's punishing hand ???
      So God, if he is, has nothing to do with it ... another reason ...
      With the help of the gods, people are trying to explain what there is no rational explanation!

    In general, when someone starts to answer for this ?! Or will they again appoint switchmen ?! The planes are old ?! And how did they either catapult, or perish or perished during the bailout?!?! How much can you endure this lies of power and continuous corruption?!?! Trump or the State Department at least expressed condolences ?! Have you met your relatives ?! They created a commission ...

    Alas, planes from time to time fall for technical and other reasons, nothing can be done about it. But the fact that when bailout pilots get injuries and injuries incompatible with life is of course a big jamb of the aviation industry and specifically the manufacturer of security systems.
    Not all is well with them there in Pin-dostan, as they want to show. For a long time already standing in service with a machine with, it would seem, tested and proven systems, the most important characteristics did not justify the verification.

    They wrote that over the past year, Americans have crashed 11 F-18s. Due to the impossibility of full use of the F-35 Air Force as a temporary measure, it was compelled to remove from conservation the F-18, for which many spare parts are no longer manufactured.
