From the presidential plane to fighter jets: a string of accidents in a week

50

The past week has been full of air and ground incidents involving various types of aircraft. Traditionally, the United States Air Force has the largest number of accidents, which is apparently caused by the increased intensity of flights.


On September 1, there were reports of a crash near Norfolk during a training flight of the US Navy Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye reconnaissance aircraft (this type of equipment is an important part of the aircraft carrier's wing). Four crew members safely left the vehicle in distress through the main cockpit door, already equipped with parachutes, as dictated by safety requirements. They reportedly received no serious injuries. The plane was completely burnt out on the ground.


"Remains" E-2C


On the same day, the Afghan National Army crashed while landing in Takhar province. As stated, the cause of the accident was a technical malfunction. On board the vehicle carrying the wounded, there were 17 people. Only two of them received “superficial injuries”.


Mi-17


The plane of the French president, Airbus A330, suffered damage to its left wing earlier this week, which caused it to hit the hangar wall while it was being towed. The incident took place during the stay of the French leader in Lebanese Beirut. According to reports, the car was repaired by specialists on the spot.

On September 2, a US Air Force MQ-9 Reaper drone was damaged during an attempt to take off at Holloman AFB. Details of the incident were not reported.

On September 3, a CH-53E Super Stallion US Air Force helicopter assigned to New River Air Force Base in North Carolina made an emergency landing. All of the Marines left the vehicle unharmed before it was engulfed in flames and destroyed by the fire.


CH-53E


There is still no complete clarity regarding the accident that occurred in China. An unidentified PLA Air Force fighter, believed to be a Su-35 or Chengdu J-10, reportedly crashed near Guilin, in the southern province of Guangxi. At the same time, the 5th brigade of the 2nd air division of the Air Force is located in Guilin, which operates another type of equipment - the J-11, an interceptor created on the basis of the Soviet Su-27.

The pilot successfully ejected, but was injured while landing. The scene of the incident is located 900 km from Taiwan's airspace. In connection with the Indian media, there were unconfirmed reports that he was shot down by the air defense of the island state.

Air Force Command has emphasized that it strongly condemns such malicious acts aimed at deliberately creating and disseminating false information on the Internet in an attempt to confuse audiences.

- said the Taiwanese military.

        The planes were already there! wink In 1912 - the first air squadron in Russia.
        In 1912, the pilot of this squadron, Nesterov, for the first time in the world, performed a "loop"!
        And I, by nature, am an optemist. I did not notice how the 20th century flew by, because 40 years of them (80 with seniority) I spent in "5 Ocean", and in the other four I only swam (in the Arctic - up to my waist, and then the "eggs" jumped to my throat, as well as on Baikal).

              Nothing surprising. The first plane crash happened in the 6th century BC. Mr. Icarus violated the rules of flying. as a result, he fell into the depths of the sea.
              This is probably why the pilots are still afraid to splash down. Self survival instinct

The year 1900 ended, so 19 centuries (centuries) passed and with the beginning of 1901 the 20th century (century) began.

        What's the problem? All accidents occurred with military aircraft, the military has its own "jokes" and "rules". And since when did the crumpled wing during towing become a "accident"? Has this changed flight safety? If I push the car into the garage and scratch the door, for example, this can also probably be counted as a car accident. laughing Although, probably yes, with a stretch you can.

    The series of air crashes in the United States is not associated with the intensity of flights, but with the high wear and tear of aircraft.
    For almost 20 years, the United States bombed the Papuans around the world, and rattled their relics in front of everyone, as a result, the wear of the gliders is 80%, many components have not been produced for a long time, including aircraft engines.

      Well, yes, everything is correct if we compare the victim / passenger traffic parameter. But the number of victims in a car accident is a maximum of dozens, and in an aviation accident, it only starts from dozens. Therefore, every plane crash has an almost worldwide resonance. Hence all sorts of aerophobia, but I have not heard of autophobia.
