Polish Air Force F-16 amused Russian pilots with strange maneuvers

122

The pilot of the Polish F-16, accompanying a group of Russian military aircraft of various types in international airspace, behaved somewhat strangely. Perhaps this was a reaction to the speeds and angles of aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces.


This opinion was expressed by the Fighterbomber Telegram channel, which posted a video footage of the incident.

The author of the post suggested that the pilot of the Polish fighter flew with a fully filled tank. Having flown up to the Russian planes and surprised at their capabilities, he suddenly decided to release the landing gear.


This maneuver is more than strange. Especially taking into account the fact that, according to international rules, it means an order for an escorted plane to land immediately at the nearest airfield. It is worth paying attention to the fact that all this happens in neutral airspace at an altitude of about 5-6 thousand meters. That is why the signal for "forced landing" looked absurd.

At the same time, the Polish Air Force fighter became in the take-off and landing configuration, the wing mechanization was automatically released at maximum angles. Presumably, this allowed the aircraft to reduce speed without stalling.

Perhaps this Polish pilot decided to master the “innovative” way of tracking potential goals.

All these maneuvers of the Polish Air Force fighter amused the Russian pilots.

            Quite professional on the part of the Pole. Here, and ours seem to have pushed in the psek, dropping the speed to a minimum. This is not an easy task. And the fact that he did not return to the base, spreading his arms, but took action to carry out the order, does him credit and we don’t think that there are such lads there. And by the way, I am sure that ours were not "amused" even once. All pros. Everything is clear to everyone.

      No need to consider the enemy as stupid than yourself. You really think that the Poles are completely underdeveloped and you think they push someone into the cockpit of fighter jets. The training of their pilots is very good.

      The video has long been discussed in the internet. And this, by the way, the Pole took off. Well, at least a little need to be objective, and not to bum everything in a row, following the example of our neighbors from the Baltic states and Ukraine.

    The version that landing gear allows the aircraft to reduce the allowable minimum speed is contrary to the laws of physics. Maybe the pilot just fell into a stupor? I wonder at what speed and at what altitude he released the chassis?

      It is written on 5-6000 meters. Judging by the fact that ours accompanied heavy equipment, the instrument speed was probably somewhere between 550-500. I think the speed was less and at the maximum fueling the pole was not comfortable to keep at a low speed and he decided to release the flaps, not sure, but I think the alarm went off about the chassis that wasn’t released and most likely (maybe automatically, maybe for some reason, so that the signal wouldn’t press on the ears), the pilot released the chassis. And there I don’t know how it really was, maybe it really gave a landing signal, twisted the show-offs. request

        An instrument speed of 500 km / h is more than enough. Your version explains the actions if the Russians make flights at a speed of about 300 km / h. But why they do it is impossible to explain.

          I agree there shouldn't be less than 500 on the device, as a rule, the route speed of 800 is true (I don’t know how bombers are, but not lower than 700, there is something like IL 18, something like that from 650 in my opinion.) For 6000 it's like about 500- 550 on the appliance, most likely it was still showing off, but above, it’s such a rumor, offhand. smile hi

        Instrumental speed somewhere 550-500 probably was.

        This data is already coming to the "fence" on the possibilities of the chassis release.
        Therefore, in order for the fighter to maintain stability and controllability at low flight speeds, the "target", as a rule, switches to landing mode with the release of takeoff and landing mechanization, thereby creating a margin for the angle of attack and leaving the second mode (stall mode).

      You are all evil, just villains - he just wanted to stay close ...
      Our people who met with the F-16 with earlier versions - lighter, said that if the Su-27 is picking up speed, then the F-16 can hardly stay close; at high altitudes does not hold at all. Polish with conformal and hanging tanks and even more so. If I understood correctly, they accompanied someone from the Il-18 family, not a fast plane.
      And if without banter and by analogy, then everything is simple: a warning system about the configuration of the aircraft begins to give a vile sound signal at landing angles of mechanization, aka minimum speed, and the landing gear that is not released. The signal does not turn off, only correcting the configuration of the aircraft, so the guy tried his best. Amused everyone

      The version that the landing gear allows the aircraft to reduce the allowable minimum speed is contrary to the laws of physics

      Wow, but I didn’t know!
      We need to tell friends and acquaintances, otherwise everything from the old memory calculates the ratio of the area of ​​resistance and the speed of flight, and especially sophisticated people also take into account the air density in the equation, adjusted for flight altitude and atmospheric pressure.

        Throttle (engine control stick) on MG ("low throttle") has an emphasis. The thrust in this mode depends on the altitude and other flight parameters. And the escorted transport plane is not a fighter. He could not "troll" a highly maneuverable F-16 fighter on the route. Some other explanation is needed here.

          Thanks for the answer. I think I released the landing gear in order to increase air resistance on [as you said] this very MG and, accordingly, reduce the speed. Do not judge strictly, this is just the opinion of the "Motorist" (I look at the sky from below). hi

    He did not confuse anything. The "brave" and most importantly "proud" Polish pilot decided to land Russian aircraft even from neutral airspace. Knowing that this does not threaten him with anything, why not show off and then for many years to tell attentive drinking companions how he heroically fought with the Russian aces for a clear NATO sky. In show-off, inflated conceit and the uselessness of some actions, the Poles did not go far from the Ukrainians.

    The author of the post suggested that the pilot of the Polish fighter flew with a fully filled tank. Having flown up to the Russian planes and surprised at their capabilities, he suddenly decided to release the landing gear.

    I wonder what kind of opportunities the Pole saw that he decided to release the chassis? In addition to losing speed, this will not work.
    Most likely, it was some kind of signal that no one understood.

    And yes:
    This maneuver is more than strange. Especially taking into account the fact that, according to international rules, it means an order for an escorted plane to land immediately at the nearest airfield.


    At the same time, the Polish Air Force fighter became in the take-off and landing configuration, the wing mechanization was automatically released at maximum angles. Presumably, this allowed the aircraft to reduce speed without stalling.

    Yes? And why then? Strange, apparently the Pole did not know about the air brake?
    By the way, the minimum speeds at which Sukhar and Sokol go to stall are less than 200 km / h. And they flew clearly faster (angle of attack of the sides). The height is 5-6km!
    The stall version does not channel.

    I suspect that something is being said in the article about the details of the incident:
    I hope the pilots present on the site will correct me, the opinion of the other "flysimulator fans" and sofa professionals does not interest me.
    I want to note that the MiG-29 and Su-27 (or what kind of modification is there based on the T10 glider?) Fly, let’s also say, with a great pitch and angle of attack, and at the same speed as the F16 (we see this from the video).
    It seems to me that there was a typical trolling of each other in the international airspace and everyone rode out as best he could. Apparently, ours decided to pin up and slow down to the maximum in order to frustrate the attempt of the F-16 to settle down nearby. The Pole, too, was not at a loss, and in order not to hit the face with dirt, he did the same, but in view of the more successful aerodynamic form of the glider similar to the MiG-29 and Su-27 (or 30), which allows our planes to feel more confident in these modes , F-16 had to additionally throw away the chassis in order to maintain speed, and not really turn on the afterburner at already low speeds?

    By the minimum evolving speed in its class, the Su-27 has no equal. Even the MiG-29K with its increased ailerons loses. But the Poles - they are stubborn, perhaps Pilot just decided to check the handling of the F-16 at minimum speed.

      In NATO, and not only in NATO, but also in other countries, as part of the fight against terrorism, there is a standard rule for visually identifying aircraft by their flight number - they are convinced that this is the plane that is declared for flight
      Switzerland said on Saturday that its fighters were escorted by a Russian delegation flying to Peru as part of a routine audit.
      Daniel Raist, spokesman for the country's ministry of defense, confirmed that two F / A-18 military aircraft escorted the Russian airliner for seven minutes while he was above Swiss territory.
      According to him, the Swiss Air Force tried to identify the ship and verify its affiliation. Reist added that Switzerland conducts 300-400 such inspections per year, and they are fully consistent with the rules of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

      I think the Pole did just that. The fact that the chassis is released, clearly reduce the speed for ease of recognition.

    Again, another change!

    "accompanying a group of Russian military aircraft of various types in the international airspace," that is, flying very slowly, the pilot "Having flown up to the Russian aircraft and surprised by their" incomprehensible (probably the accuracy of the formation and low speed), "capabilities, he unexpectedly !! ! decided to release the chassis. "

    Well, since this is not a sign of "forced landing" - since the planes are a group and all are different, then the man simply reduced the speed as much as possible (it is clear that even with this he is not lagging behind) in order to take a selfie / take a picture of the aircraft formation from a good angle.

      Naturally, there is a limit on max. speed. Both for the landing gear and for the flaps (landing wing mechanization) For each type of aircraft they have their own (for example, for the Tu-134 - 330 km / h, Tu-154 - 400 km / h). Most modern aircraft have a speed limit of about 400-450 km / h

    Once I read memoirs of the chief of staff of a fighter aviation regiment. And I remembered such a similar episode.
    This comrade was called to the headquarters of the air division, he loaded into the place of the navigator-shooter in a connected U-2 aircraft and flew in a shaver. The pilot asked to closely monitor the air, as in this area enemy fighter-hunters roam around.
    The weather was bad, low clouds and a friend relaxed a bit, looking at the ground and comparing the terrain on the route with a map.
    And when he raised his head and looked back, he froze with horror. A Messerschmidt-109 was hanging about fifty behind me and was pointing with its nose, aiming at the victim. At the same time, the propeller blades were barely spinning, the flaps were as open as possible, and the landing gear struts protruded into the vorskoryak, as if the Messer was approaching for landing.
    The German pilot did such actions to reduce the speed and aim more precisely, since the flight speed of the U-2 "maize" is 80-100 km / h, and the landing speed of the Messerschmidt is about 150 km / h.
    This story ended successfully. This comrade yelled into the intercom about the threat and an experienced pilot, twisting a sharp bend on the U-2, disappeared into a foggy haze.
    I think this article describes a similar episode - a decrease in aircraft speed due to the release of flaps and landing gear.
