In the USA, they talked about the discovery of the body of the pilot and the wreckage of an F-15C fighter that fell into the sea

In the United States published updated data on the plane crash with the F-15C fighter in Europe. We are talking about a plane that, during a scheduled flight, crashed into the North Sea, rising from the airfield of the Lakenhit military base in England.


Media reports citing the U.S. military command said that one pilot piloted the aircraft (such an emphasis was made on the fact that initially the press assumed the presence of two pilots on board - with an erroneous indication of the modification of the fighter). He was 27-year-old Kenneth Allen, who had the rank of first lieutenant (an American analogue of the military rank of senior lieutenant).

The US command reported that Kenneth Allen was dead.

The incident, we recall, occurred last Monday at about 9:40 local time (British).

From the report:

The body of the pilot and the wreckage of the aircraft were discovered by the British search and rescue service on the same day.

Allen served as assistant chief of the weapons and tactics department of the 48th fighter squadron stationed in Lakenhit. According to the latest information, he arrived at a new place of service in February this year - immediately after the wedding.

In the United States, a financial assistance fund was opened for Lieutenant Allen's family. It collected, according to reports, the American press more than 20 thousand dollars.

Colonel Will Marshall, Commander of the 48th Fighter Squadron:

We deeply grieve over the loss of Lieutenant Allen, we mourn this loss together with his family and friends.

For reference: about 4 thousand American troops are deployed at the base in Lakenhit.

      Yes, it’s a pity our guys PMCs who died in Syria. Under the blows, including the US Air Force. The Russian Foreign Ministry wrote that 3-5 of our fellow citizens died, Strelkov shouted about 200 dead. There is no merit in the death of this enemy, but I am not going to shed tears on it.

        sorry, but for PMCs, I don’t burst into tears either, they sell their lives for a lot of money, they themselves chose. Whoever the military fulfilled his duty was one, and who went to earn money was another.

          The fact that you hate my homeland is understandable. How to take Palmyra, so "our heroes." And as failure, so "corrupt creatures."

                  No, not available. I do not understand the regret over the death of a fighter in a hostile army. Which before this was killing our fellow citizens. Heroes of Palmyra. So what if they are in unofficial status? It is still our people. And they were killed by US troops, including the Air Force.

    So here ... the boy at all. Just got married. It’s sad.
    And what are they, for a drug addict recidivist 12 lyamov collected, and for a pilot, only 20 thousand? Oh, something is wrong with the Danish Kingdom ...

      They assembled a pilot on their own, but a powerful PR machine worked with the Negro

      A drug addict is definitely more valuable than a fighter pilot, for the preparation of which the breakthrough of money was spent for that ...
      So.

      I was especially impressed by the golden coffin and the “heartbroken” brothers of the drug addict with their forefishes all over Lithuania.
      And in the USA, everything is wrong with the Air Force for a long time. Nadya won a type of hypersonic missile, the whole task is to drag a dummy under the wing of a bomber. Well so on the way this doll stupidly lost))))

      Why are we minus? I'm talking about our plane, which also fell into the sea. I know that they searched for a long time whether they found it, I don’t know.

        No. Not found. Unfortunately !!! The family is now in big trouble. "Missing" payments are not allowed. Only when they recognize the dead. And this is a long time.

    The place of the disaster was established. Aircraft and pilot's body were found. The causes of the disaster are being established. Not fragments, but fragments.
    The causes of the disaster are not reported. Reported details of the personal life of the pilot in the spirit of "folk" television.

      And when did they report the reasons? A week ago - first, a civilian side enters Osprey KMP in San Diego, class A damage (more than 2 million evergreens), then a military transporter sticks into a fence in Iraq when landing. for a snack in Utah F-35 in taxiing say “crack” with a bow stance, the pilot had to eject, and this is not the first case with a stout “fat penguin” stance. Have you heard anything about the causes of at least one accident?

    Recently I changed my place of service - I could just not take into account natural factors .. flying over the cold sea is not the same as flying over the desert ..
