Aircraft crashed in Mississippi

32
There are reports from the United States that the training plane Northrop T-38 Talon crashed in Mississippi. This is a two-seater jet aircraft, which performed a training flight with a crew consisting of an officer-commander and a co-pilot - a cadet of the Air Force Academy. More accurate data for pilots is not given.

It is known that the pilots managed to eject. They were discovered by representatives of the Mississippi military base. The servicemen were taken to one of the local hospitals.



Aircraft crashed in Mississippi


It is reported that a supersonic aircraft crashed outside the US Air Force base - a few dozen kilometers from it. The brigades of the investigating bodies, as well as the commission of the same air base, which the plane belonged to, work at the crash site.

According to some reports, the crew commander reported on the ground about the problems with the technical condition of the aircraft during the flight. What kind of problems were discussed, not reported.

Aircraft of this type are among the most "long-lived" in the US Air Force. Were put into service in the already distant 1961 year. For more than half a century, tens of thousands of pilots were trained with their help, not only for the US Air Force, but also for the air forces of other countries, including South Korea, Turkey, etc.

          Sanya, hi! hi It is bad that in the news only the type of aircraft is indicated, without modification. If the T-38A, then this is an old plane, but if the T-38S, that is, what mattresses should think about ...

          Men! I apologize to everyone! There is no concept of a “flyer” ... There is a “pilot” and a “pilot” .... All pilots can become “pilots”, but not a single “pilot” (with rare exceptions) can become a PILOT! I apologize to everyone who became - PILOTS!

      No, please wait! Let's figure it out !!! Where did technical services look ?! Where were they taught ?! Do you need to check diplomas ?! How much can one risk the lives of American pilots and fly on such a junk ?! Where is Traaaaaamp ?! Why climbed into Syria ?! How much does this Syria cost the USA ?! How many schools on the reservations could be built and asphalted completely ?! Mess, theft and betrayal! Trump leaked everyone!

        However, gasoline in the United States does not rise in price, as in our country the retirement age does not increase with a bad Trump. And Unas, with good Putin, the opposite is true. How so? request Either Trump is not such a stupid person, as they say here, or Putin with his gang has us winked

    Fell and fell, why suck on the details. Only that which does not fly does not fall.
