The American media publishes information about an emergency situation that arose with the carrier-based carrier-based fighter aircraft Theodore Roosevelt. American Military News reports that the F / A-18F Super Hornet, attributed to the wing of an aircraft carrier, crashed into the Philippine Sea.


According to the materials of this and other American information resources, two pilots who were in the cockpit of a combat aircraft were forced to eject. Their searches were organized, and after a while they were discovered and hoisted aboard the helicopter.

He brought the catapulted troops aboard the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt.

In the publication of Star & Stripes (USA), citing the command of the United States Navy, it is reported that an investigation of the incident with the F / A-18 aircraft has been launched.

At the moment, it is stated that the condition of the pilots is good, they did not receive any serious damage at the time of the splashdown. They also managed to avoid hypothermia.

The information is confirmed by the US Pacific Command.

The aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" in recent years often appears in the summaries. Some time ago, the commander was replaced on it (in American naval terminology - captain) due to the fact that the previous one through the media spoke about the difficult situation with the infection on board the aircraft carrier. The ship was forced to be disinfected in one of the ports of the island of Guam. Not so long ago, he again went to sea. On board there are about a third fewer troops than usual. It is stated that sanitary measures are followed.

        Why are you waiting
        sarcastic grins in some Western media "partners"

        Rather, it will be a bunch of stinging posts in our Internet segment.
        As for me, there is nothing joyful. The plane crashed, so they still had hundreds of them on combat duty ... What is the deep joy, where to applaud?

          But one less on combat duty. They haven’t been released for a long time.
          The situation with aircraft, and with armored vehicles, as in Russia in 2008.

    The pilots are alive and this is important, but the planes are still riveting.

      They specifically ditched the old plane so that they would be given the brand new F-35.

        F / A-18F Super Hornet no one was ever going to change to F 35. Change to F 35 F-18 Hornet

      Nowhere to rivet. Unless to replace the super-progressive F-35. But then the wing service staff must be doubled. Indians and Filipinos to hire.

        Fell "Super-Hornet", which continue to build and deliver to the US Navy. This new modification will serve simultaneously with the F-35C.
        Therefore, the loss is more valuable. yes

          The fact of the matter is that now Trump demanded RESUME production of F / A-18. Production ceased in the mid 90's. The plant, of course, costs a whole lot, and the assembly line is equipped, there are no workers and technical documentation is outdated.

      A pity! .. Do not grieve about the fate of the enemy pilots !! Their pilots - to us ENEMIES by definition! and at a meeting, for example, they will not stand on ceremony. even in peacetime. Remember the incidents with the Americans in the Far East after the war, how they bombed our airfields, how they shot down our transporter with the command staff ... how ... There are a lot of things to remember. American warriors are ENEMIES for us. And do not shoot yet. A good enemy is a dead enemy.! And the arguments about "humanism" in this case are very "smack" of fraternizing with the enemy, that is, with betrayal or treason!

    At the ... minute of the flight ... the F / A-18 deck aircraft crashed. The cause of the accident is a failure ... The crew ejected, saved. The condition of the crew members is satisfactory.
    Something like that.

    The Americans have fallen combat aircraft - good!
    Pilots survived - good too!
    The equipment is not produced, there is nothing to replenish - fine! Living pilots are also good, but we are not cannibals.
