American planes fell into the sea when refueling off the coast of Japan

57
Another incident with the American aviation occurred in the area of ​​one of the US military bases in Japan. This time, an F / A-18 fighter-bomber collided with a KC-130 tanker. Both aircraft carried out a training flight with refueling in the air. An air tanker took off from the American military base Ivakuni in Japanese territory.


American planes fell into the sea when refueling off the coast of Japan


Both aircraft after the collision, according to some, fell into the water about 320 km from the same base. It is known that a total of seven people were aboard two planes, five of which were in KC-130.

According to the latest data, a collision was made during the refueling of the F / A-18. The media stated that the pilot dropped the speed to a critical point, and the tanker “caught up” with him in the air. This information is not officially confirmed. There is no data about whether the refueling was real or whether it was a training imitation of it. This would provide information about a possible large-scale spill of fuel into the sea.

In the official Twitter of the United States Navy, it is stated that one of the victims of the collision was found. He was taken to the hospital. The fate of the other six people at the moment remains unknown.

Earlier in Japan, protests were often held, due to the fact that the command of the US bases could not provide security during flight operations, which poses a threat to civilians.

        What is their budget? There, only 10-15% of the total amount allocated to Pontagon is spent on the purchase of equipment, so this is a tangible loss. Well and the most important thing - you will not return the six dead military specialists with any money.

      I agree with you and the sacrifices are considerable for peacetime. On the other hand, no one called them to this region, but came themselves following the results of 2 MV. Their ship defiantly passed by the Peter the Great Gulf, in order to probably show its "coolness" of the Pacific Fleet. The guys are completely and strenuously begged for trouble.

    An interesting movie is how a tanker could catch up with a fighter if he himself had to approach the tanker from the back for refueling. They have a relatively tight connection during refueling, unlike ours, providing greater freedom of movement of aircraft relative to each other.

      It is unclear which refueling option was practiced (bar or cone), but night refueling is one of the most difficult elements of preparation ..
      Most likely they jumped from f-18, but it’s unlikely that they will

    the pilot slowed down to a critical point, and the tanker “caught up” him in the air.

    With us, on the contrary, the pilot is catching up with a refueling aircraft. But at these pin dosniks even here everything is turned upside down.

      And they, too, come up from behind, just watched before noon, as striped ones fill up. Everything from the f-22 fighter to the B-52, all who take fuel, come from behind, and the refueling bar has a move to the right - to the left and the retractable pipe. Apparently the operator controls it, since he himself is not visible, but the moment of docking is clearly visible.

    In the correspondence war, Russia, NATO is still being waged. Well, if this trend continues.
    According to the article
    According to recent reports, the collision was allowed during the refueling of F / A-18. The media said that the pilot slowed down to a critical point, and tanker “caught up” him in the air.

    Somehow it’s not clear. It is usually the gas station that catches up.

      Maybe the fighter pilot didn’t calculate the approach maneuver, cut the tanker and, when trying to correct it, allowed stall and collision.
      Or maybe it was just the "return approach" that was trained - the tanker catches up with the damaged plane (here I am already hypothesizing), but something did not grow together.
      Otherwise, the disaster cannot be explained.
