Military Review

The effects of a collision of a Spanish Air Force transport plane with a bird are shown.

72

The network has images of the consequences of a collision of a military transport aircraft of the Spanish Air Force with a bird. The Spanish Air Force A400M Atlas four-engine turboprop transporter with registration number ZM409 is reported to have flown from Getafe military base near Madrid.


At the time of takeoff, a bird collided with the plane, causing very significant damage to the front of the fuselage. The photos published by the Spanish pilots on Twitter show how, in the cockpit area, the plating of a multi-ton machine is literally torn off.

At the same time, the track along the front of the hull is clearly visible, as well as the fact that a collision with a bird led to a violation of the integrity of the electrical circuits of a military transport aircraft.

Meanwhile, in the Spanish segment of social networks, injuries sustained by an airplane are being discussed quite actively.

One of the comments is from a user with the nickname Carles34:

Question from a beginner (don’t crucify me for this): if a bird can strut the skin of an airplane in this way, is the airplane really ready for a gale, sand, extreme temperatures? It is clear that speed increases the effects of a blow, but here it is somehow too much.

User nickname Gabriel:

Judging by the damage, this bird could well be a vulture weighing 10-11 kg.


As it turned out, this is the second incident in several months when the Spanish Air Force plane collides with a bird and receives serious damage. Photo after the previous case:

                    The Boeing Company long ago created a special cannon that fired chickens. From this cannon, they fired at their planes in order to know for sure that the plane would withstand a collision. When hit "on the forehead" the chicken is simply smeared on the glass.
                    By the way, with this gun there was a funny case when the carcasses of hens forgot to defrost. The plane struck right through laughing

              Just! The body of the bird is heterogeneous, but in simple terms it is soft! Hence such damage! You probably saw with what force a bumblebee or a gadfly breaks on the windshield of a car? And if you increase the speed to 600 km / h and the mass of the "bumblebee" to 2-4 kg. Yes, such a "carcass" pierces the windshield bulletproof glass! And it remains intact, but without bones as they say in the "bag".

              The photo clearly shows that the bird first glided over the skin, leaving only dents, until it caught on the protruding angle of attack sensor, tearing it along with a piece of skin. If she didn’t get in the way of this sensor, they would get rid of dents.

      Titanium for this is not the best material, lightweight too, not very durable. Normal steel is better, and many times cheaper.

        You are probably a specialist in metal science, but I dare to argue with you. In the 90s, I had a titanium montage in my car. It was very light, but so strong that I was simply amazed. What I just did not get up with her, she did not care. Unfortunately, I sold it in the park along with the car, which I sincerely regret.

          Well, it’s worse that light. Shells and bullets, out of the heavier materials do, just to increase energy.
          The strength characteristics of titanium are also worse, the same yield strength.
          And I'm not a specialist in metal science, just a little bit of basics were taught at the time, so this is not my specialty at all.

              When you need to watch not only strength characteristics, but the strength / weight ratio, then titanium gives some gain. Plus, low magnetism. But this is if you do not look at the cosmic price, processing complexity, and corrosion vulnerability.

    The blow came in some kind of sensor, which led to a rupture of the skin. If it weren’t for him, they would have gotten away simply with a dent, especially since the bird got tangentially.

        At one time, I flew to work. On IL 86 in Cape Verde I ate swarms on takeoff in flocks. I always sat at the luminaire, interesting. On Tu 154 I got the crew and stewardesses Let me steer. You know they gave it. They invited me to the cabin to the left. The steering wheels said. It’s just abaldel from the sight. The helm really held out. I joked how many hours you have; how you understand them. After an intermediate landing in Malta with a change of crew, they played me again. But that's another story.

    In the first photo, everything is clear. A fairly large bird got into an external sensor and, as a result, turned a piece of skin.
    According to the second photo, judging by the cellular honeycombs, there is a fairing from a composite, so that there is nothing surprising here.

    On our island. Russian hosts the WEF summit. Su-27 flights take place at low altitude before and during the summit. At the same time, people are launching quadcopters. looking at all this disgrace I stand and think: "we need to get out of here ...". Sorry for the pilots. If only they knew how to take risks.
