Aircraft damage incident occurred on board a US aircraft carrier off the coast of Iran

40
Information about the incident on the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier ("Abraham Lincoln") found confirmation. It was previously reported that several aircraft were damaged on board an American aircraft carrier. Now the information is concretized.




It is noted that the collision occurred while USS Abraham Lincoln was located near the coast of Iran.

The E-2D Hawkeye long-range radar detection aircraft touched two F / A-18 Super Hornet fighters while landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier. It happened on 9 of August. But the details are given in the American press with reference to the command only now. According to some reports, the plane missed the aerofinisher cable upon landing.

The wreckage of the E-2D Hawkeye screws flew off into two other F / A-18 Super Hornet, damaging their skin. As a result, more than 2 million dollars worth of damage was caused. Moreover, "more than 2-x million dollars" - this is only by the class of damage. How much "more" has not yet been specified.

At the moment, a commission has been set up that sets out all the details of what happened with the E-2D Hawkeye crew's degree of guilt. It is added that one of the deck aircraft received significant damage, now it is planned to be overhauled.

    4 planes, this is a failure, but how can this be done, all the more so, screwed up clumsily.

      Well, here it is clear: the larger and heavier the plane, the more difficult it is to put it on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Aircraft AWACS generally only with Americans on aircraft carriers. Not even anyone to compare.

        For now. We are waiting for the appearance of this in China. And in general, someone will explain to me how a miss with a hook on the aerofishiner led to the collapse of the propellers, and most importantly that the "Hockey", did he either stay on the deck or "went swimming"?

          in order to be able to base a DRLO aircraft, an aircraft carrier must have catapults, it is difficult to lift a heavy and low-thrust aircraft from a springboard

          It is a pity that this AWAC did not break through the deck. Then there would be a lot of talk ... hi

        And the French on the "de Gaulle" are not "hokai"? In general, minus five airplanes is a trifle, but pleasant. And an indicative moment - the level of training of pilots of carrier-based aviation is falling.

      Have you seen a mover on deck during operations? There is nowhere to spit, planes take off and land at intervals of less than a minute, many are on the executive. Aircraft AWACS not small hit with a flight to the last cable, rolled back on the run further and touched those waiting for departure. Questions to the flight control service and who was responsible for deck control

        Good day Anton. Previously, the aircraft carriers used a network to catch planes when the brake system was missed or not working properly. Have you already abandoned it?

          It was used, but with the advent of jet aircraft and greatly increased landing speeds and masses of aircraft, this idea had to be abandoned, the calculation was made on the fact that the landing deck is rotated at an angle to the axis of the ship and in case of a miss, the pilot gives off and the plane leaves for 2 circles.
          Also on this landing deck there are steam catapults for take-off, apparently the planes preparing to take off there were also hooked, the wingspan and the location of the engines at the E 2D maybe f18 will be different

        There is only one way out - to change the configuration of the flight deck.

    Hokai is generally a long-liver. If not mistaken from 70 x years of the last century in operation. Already, phantoms and crusaders and Prowlers have sunk into oblivion, and that’s just the stuffing changed for him and that's it. Good car.

    It is noted that the collision occurred while USS Abraham Lincoln was located near the coast of Iran.

    Something the men are summing up that "not far from the coast." Somewhere a little further, where the risk of getting from Iran is zero.

    The wreckage of the E-2D Hawkeye screws flew into two other F / A-18 Super Hornets, damaging their skin. As a result, more than $ 2 million in damage was caused.
    Is the proximity of the shores of Iran psychologically affecting pilots or something else? The case is not so rare past the aerofinisher cable, just the planes in this case give full throttle and take off, but this one obviously could not for some reason (the screws did not break out of the blue).

      Translation is not correct.

      In this situation, Hokai did not "chop" anything with any blades, if he hooked the Super Hornets with the blades, then he would not fly away to the alternate airfield, but would have burned up on the deck with the crew or flew overboard, because there are 5 more meters of the wing console is available, it turns out Hawkeye, together with the blades, would have carried the entire wing console.

      The correct translation (more precisely, adaptation) of this phrase: "Hawkeye propeller aircraft struck two F / A-18 Super Hornet aircraft and sent debris flying into two other F / A-18s", sounds like this "Hawkeye propeller aircraft collided (most likely with a wing tip) with two F / A-18 Super Hornets and debris from these collisions hit two other F / A-18s.
