S-130 was again noted: the Hercules transporter “plowed” the soil when landing

34

The C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft manufactured by the American corporation Lockheed Martin is perhaps the most emergency product in its class. Moreover, he is the most common air "truck" in the world. This aircraft is operated in 20 countries. In total, over 425 units in various modifications were produced during the production of the machine.


A month ago, the last accident related to Hercules occurred. Then the U.S. Air Force plane landing at the Iraqi airbase, went beyond the runway and caught fire. On Sunday, July 5, an incident occurred again, in which the S-130 was noted.

The S-130, belonging to the South African Air Force, was taken outside the runway, it "plowed" the hull adjacent to it and stopped. Judging by the photographs, this time the fire was avoided. No casualties reported. The accident occurred at the local Easterleat airbase, located in Cape Town.

In recent years, information about defects accompanying the operation of the S-130 has constantly appeared in the media. The latest iterations of American transporters are also flawed. At the same time, purchases of problem aircraft continue. So, in January of this year, the U.S. armed forces purchased 50 new machines of the type C-130J Super Hercules with a total value of more than $ 3 billion.

      Something not enough "Hercules" ..
      In the USSR, the An-12 was mass-produced at three aircraft factories in:
      Irkutsk, 1957 — 1962 years, 155 copies;
      Voronezh, 1960 — 1965 years, 258 copies;
      Tashkent, 1962 — 1972 years, 830 copies.
      Not counting the An-10 and the Chinese clone

        What 450? They were produced by more than 2500 pieces.

                Apparently with the technique, I’m not used to claim without investigation (it’s not accepted in aviation), but the screw will automatically fly when the engine fails. Apparently they did not hold with asymmetric traction, perhaps the wind helped lateral. hi

                  Well, the engine, too, just does not fail. Either improper operation or improper maintenance? Or is it still a pilot’s mistake

    B-1B too:
    Judging by the images (according to some signs taken at the Dice airbase), the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in excess of the permitted landing weight, as a result of which the tire covers burst and the racks caught fire. It is assumed that the equipment failed in flight, requiring an emergency landing ...


    In general, this in dynamics looks like in 1994 in Germany -

    Conclusion from Firsov -
    It is worth noting that according to the budget of the US Air Force next year it is planned to withdraw 17 B-1s from combat, and according to the five-year plan, the B-1 will be removed from service altogether. It is said that the use of B-1 for direct support in battles in the Near and Middle "Vostoks" specifically hit the fleet of "strategists". How they are going to rearm them on hypersonic missiles - hell knows.

    But this is more interesting MUCH

    The author of the article is mistaken, C-130 of all modifications of about 3000 was made, which makes it perhaps the most popular transport carrier in the world ... today they produce C-130j super hercules, they have already produced about 20 in 500 years (the plane flies like a hot pie, even in it’s not always possible to combat such a series) .. so there’s no need to talk about a big accident (even taking into account a series of new aircraft) .. why I don’t understand why to fly the South African Air Force, they have a S-130V (this is an aircraft built in the late 50s and early 60s). .. in general, news for the sake of news and "and the neighbor’s cottage burned down" ...

        Well, such statements must be supported by numbers. For example, the number of accidents / number of departures. And it is obligatory in comparison with "classmates".

    What is Heracles ... though it didn’t seem to crash too much


    The F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter crashed while landing at Utah Hill Air Base. Thus, given the F-22 crashed, this is the third fifth-generation fighter lost by the US Air Force in the past month. It is worth noting that in an incomplete year there were five air disasters with the latest aircraft of these types.
    US F-35 fighter crashed while landing on June 8. This was the third accident with testing fifth-generation fighters in the United States in less than a month. According to reports, the F-35 fighter, which was associated with the 388th fighter wing, completed the training task. According to the command of the base, the pilot quickly left the fighter after the landing of the fighter and is currently undergoing a planned medical examination. Due to a breakdown in the fighter’s chassis, the runway at Hill Air Force Base was closed, and the fighters, which were still training in the air, were transferred to other bases.

      Yeah. There over the last month that just did not fall:

      Ferret "Wild Weasel"
      At the Shaw airbase, the F-16 crashed - a rather rare modification - SM, the so-called "Wild Weasel" - specially adapted to suppress enemy air defense systems (radars, air defense systems, etc.).

      Prior to this, there were ospreys, transporters in Iraq and another bag of onions ... Although this is garbage - Canadians generally Board No. 1 hit, trying to throw into the hangar

    Is this Hercules attributed to troubled aircraft? laughing
    In the Israeli army they say: "only two Hercules are better than Hercules."
    A symbol of utility and reliability.
    They were produced by more than 2500 pieces, and are driven in the tail and mane on all continents

      The Israeli army says that the F-35 is not a sucker. Not an indicator. Especially if you remember that in Israel they still fly on the radioactive Stylen, only when one of them burned down last November and it turned out. that the survivors are ka-specifically laughing

        Are you talking about Sikorski helicopters? I myself flew them in the 90s. They are ancient, but long-playing. Although it is time to urgently change them, of course.
        And to study the F-35 in Israel every year pilots of NATO countries come to the Blue Flag exercises. They organize joint flights of Typhoons, F-18 and other fighters with F-35. To show the possibilities and study the tactics of application. F-35 becomes the main workhorse of the Israeli Air Force. F-16 is gradually decommissioned.

          But in the United States resume purchases of F-15 and reduce purchases of F-35. No, it’s clear that a manufacturer buys worse for himself. So after all

            F-15 buy two squadrons in the version of "weapons platform". With 28 explosives. This, in fact, is no longer quite a fighter - he cannot maneuver. It can fly straight and shoot far at the tip of other planes. The same F-35.
            And the procurement of F-35 goes according to a multi-year plan. The total number is not reduced.

              Better! P your F-35 - maybe, or "he is a fighter, but the fighter does not have to maneuver"? The fat penguin is so called because it can fly either slowly and only in a straight line, or quickly - but only down, no maneuvers!

    Judging by the photo for the article, here the type of aircraft that descended from the runway is not the main thing.
    The main thing is that this runway (Runway-Landing Strip) has no signs of the presence of a BPB (Lateral Safety Strip), with increased soil density, in case of an aircraft “leaving” the runway. So: S-130, An-12, or IL -76, etc. - would suffer the same fate.
    It’s not the plane’s fault, but the arrangement of the airdrome (if you do not take into account the crew’s error in maintaining the direction after landing, or the brake system is malfunctioning), the runway itself, in excellent condition, is dry and clean.

    Okay, in the title photo of the C-130J-30 Super Hercules, these were not involved in the accidents yet, and the one that "planted the potatoes" is likely the old man C-130H Factsheet, but can be restored without problems. A technique is a technique. And the Mercians need a service, and superjets, they say, are killing people.

    The author "plowed" the topic, but not in that direction, the text is an "information noise." The main (the causes of the aviation incident or accident) I did not recognize.
