Where there are two, there is a third. Following the RQ-4 Global Hawk, the MQ-4C Triton crashed


As the newspaper writes, the accident occurred on September 13 in 2.45 standard Pacific time (13.45 MSK) during a test flight of a drone. During the flight aboard the MQ-4C Triton, a problem arose that did not allow the drone to continue the task. After the return order was submitted, the engine was turned off, the landing gear did not come out, the drone "sat down" on the belly. According to representatives of the Navy, the damage from the accident exceeded 2 million dollars, as the nasal sensor sensors and the advanced radar located in the UAV fuselage were damaged during landing.

At the moment, the causes of the accident have not been established. In addition, the commission set up to investigate the emergency cannot determine who drove the UAV at the time of landing, as Point Mugu operators controlled takeoff and landing on previous sorties, and in the air of the UAV it was controlled by ground control station in Jacksonville, Florida.

The MQ-4C Triton is a naval version of the strategic intelligence UAV RQ-4 Global Hawk. Recently it was reported that at the end of June off the coast of Spain, the strategic unmanned reconnaissance RQ-4 Global Hawk fell into the sea, a similar UAV crashed in the summer of 2017, crashing into the land in California, USA.

    I am glad that no one was hurt from the civilian population.
    Well, the fact that Petrov and Bosharov were not in California at that time smile

      This year, the stripes are notably falling, Global Hawk, C-130, Black Hawk, F-15, Apache, F-22 braking 100 meters belly and F-35 without a chassis - this is what came to mind in recent months.

    So that their drones all "land" just like that! So that the number of unmanned aerial vehicles that took off was five times higher than the number of those who landed !!!

    the commission cannot establish who controlled the UAV at the time of landing,
    Wow! They can’t figure out who controlled the other thing. Computer games have completely played out in war, which confuse reality with virtuality.

      Of course they can’t! Because Triton was controlled by our operator in the MCC via a satellite hanging over California! bully

        knock down, of course, it's easier than creating your own. Only now they will correct the mistakes, and whether we will have such an analogue, is a rhetorical question. Stop throwing enemies' caps.

    Of course, it is possible to gloat, only the statistics say that the emergency is more where there are more frequent flights and more boards. So we can sleep peacefully, we do not have a GLOBAL UAV, and, apparently, will not be long. Global, this is when the board flying over Ukraine is controlled by an operator from California, via satellite. And there they receive a television signal from the board. And you can launch such a handsome man and serve at any air base. We cannot even provide regimental needs for UAVs.
