        It's good that I have at least such a position in relation to the Anglo-Saxons - some, like you, if I am not mistaken, prefer a different position - to lie under them ... If I am mistaken about you, then excuse me!

          As an option. In general, I watch various American TV shows, which in fact are filmed for teenagers and for American blacks. So all the media production of the last year or two, aimed at blacks, in fact, promoted riots and uprisings. The street gangs there are, in fact, if not good, then neutral, and the main villains are the US federal agencies and services. The US Army has long been portrayed in a negative way in such media. And since the age of 16, the US president has become almost the main negative hero. If earlier for various heroes the highest honor was simply a photo with the president, now the opposite is true. The President of the United States, even if he does not directly participate in TV shows or films, is at least mentioned in a negative way. And in general, in my opinion, the climax was the film The Joker, which essentially celebrates the rebellion of a little man. The audience of such TV series and films, and these are mainly young people, have been preparing for several years for what is happening on their streets now. request

    four crew members were able to safely leave the plane
    There is someone to ask (besides the recorders) what actually happened on board. I looked at the list of operators of this aircraft by the United States: China, Israel, Mexico, Egypt, France, Japan, Singapore. Operated since the 60s. And the Americans often point fingers at our planes, which, in their opinion, are outdated long ago.

      Maybe because on "their" aircraft avionics are undergoing constant modernization and overhaul, and we have most of the boards of auxiliary and bomber aircraft equipped with equipment of the 80s-90s?
      When it’s just a holiday for the commander of a unit to get at the disposal of something developed / produced in the early-mid 2000s.
      Well, remember that the original aircraft and its modification are not the same thing, otherwise you and the Tu-22M3 will be "operated since the 60s."

    It can be concluded that there are more training flights and the frequency of flight accidents has increased. If not, it's not clear, is the equipment worn out?

      There are too many old planes, and they are being used intensively. There was a plaque somewhere on the health of various types of aircraft in the American Air Force. For some types, it is faulty in the area of ​​half. There are too many planes, there is not enough money for repair and modernization of all. And then there's F35 eating money like a vacuum cleaner. The operating costs are too high, and the Air Force's budget is not rubber, so as not to think about it.

      A normal gearbox for coaxial screws simply could not.

        This is not true. Modern HPT, powerful ones, are equipped with one high-performance propeller ... and without a gearbox and without the difficulties associated with it. An 8 blade propeller is simpler and lighter than two 4x + gearboxes.

              In general, think about what kind of reactive moment such a propeller creates. It's normal for a twin-engine car, but a single-engine car will obviously have problems.

                Look at Pilatus, for example ... The new A400, Hercules ... everyone is like that now. And in the Russian Federation, coaxial ones are not designed.

    Here I envy uryakalka. How little they need for happiness. Do not feed bread, if only some cow dies at the Merikos. To get such a level of joy, I need to do some useful work, for example.

      Yes, thank you for reminding me of useful deeds - I will go and put a candle to Nikola to the Pleasant for such a useful deed laughing

    The news is not bad. And without the bitter subtext about the lost pilots, everyone is alive. wink

    It's just that the foe has less serviceable "iron".

    But when on the dead pilots at a conventional enemy they dance on the bones in peacetime - this, of course, is unpleasant.
    Whoever says anything, people who rise into the sky should have solidarity (as long as they don't shoot each other).

    The American military command says that an investigation has been launched, the purpose of which is to find out the specific reasons for the crash of the military plane.

    what is there to think for a long time - a well-known thing, Putin is to blame.

    Some kind of petty position you have.

    You have too little time on VO to understand one thing. If you want to have pluses, you need to "water" the Americans, NATO members and all "enemies" as soon as possible. Lower them below the baseboard. This is considered a very patriotic world view. But if you express your disagreement with the phrase "very good" of the post in response to an aircraft accident, you will get a lot of disadvantages. We have given to doubt our patriotism. They did not rejoice over the plane's accident, even at the enemy's. So do not pay attention to the cons, and behave as you see fit.

      No, you are behind the times, in order to get many advantages, you have to scold Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church, and America is already a lame duck laughing

    The most amazing thing in this story is that all the crew members safely left the plane. It would be helpful to briefly describe the E-2C emergency escape system.
