In the United States showed footage of the fall of the fifth generation fighter F-35B

In the United States, videos have been published showing the loss of the fifth generation F-35 fighter.


A few days ago, "Voennoye Obozreniye" in one of the news reports reported that during refueling, the F-35B stealth fighter of the US Navy was damaged, control by the pilot over it was lost, as a result of which the combat vehicle began to fall. The pilot ejected safely and was found on the ground by emergency services.

Refueling of the fighter was carried out using the KC-130J air tanker, which was also damaged before the transfer of fuel for the F-35 began. The tanker crew was forced to land the plane literally in the field - near the airfield of the military base.

The American command reported that no one was ultimately injured during such a landing, but the plane needs additional maintenance.

On the published video you can see the moment of the fall of the F-35B. The fighter falls almost vertically, and after the collision it explodes. At the same time, the fall took place a few hundred meters from the eyewitnesses of the event, who filmed the moment on the cameras of their smartphones.

At the moment, the ejected American pilot is in the hospital and is undergoing a so-called recovery course.


And this is footage of an air tanker landing:

    Good wording. Only not "got injured", but plopped down on the belly in the field with THREE idle engines. Three knocked out so that at once - this is hardly a "collision", the F-35 was there on both wings, chtoli, fought? And given that on the same day the engine of the S-130 was cut down, the same in Ukraine - and had to land in an emergency - the United States has real problems with aircraft engines

      At the extreme dvigla as a result of the collision, the propeller flew apart. fragments of blades could well beat the neighboring one. And the third engine lost a couple of blades on landing.

    The order of American bloggers is clearly laughing , now on YouTube and other networks, will raise their views and subscriptions to the maximum laughingIsn't the pilot himself a blogger? Maybe he wanted to promote himself in this way, in our crazy life it doesn't happen, especially for the Next generation ... laughing

      So after all, the last time, when the tanker was demolished at refueling, the pilots of the refueled plane (F-18) were taking selfies in a stoned state. The American command itself acknowledged, however, a year later.
      So, in a year we will find out the reasons for the collision, when the excitement subsides.

    Be that as it may, the pilots are good. They put such a fool on the belly. Although they probably managed to drain the fuel ...

          These are not PTBs, these are gondolas with filling hoses.
          The IL-78 has the same.

    The American command reported that no one was ultimately injured during such a landing, but the plane needs additional maintenance.

    After such a landing on the "fuselage", you will not get off with additional maintenance. As there is an expression in aviation - "arrived, gently sat down, send a spare part - fuselage and planes."

    Perhaps, in the United States, they are already hired as pilots not for professional aptitude, but for quotas, well, like in Hollywood today: if only there was this one, and not the one who can fly? We are waiting for the introduction of artificial intelligence into aircraft control, so that flights will certainly take place without errors.

    The F-35 carried out its first air refueling in March 2008.
    Each of the 1000 pilots trained to date is practicing this exercise. Honing your craft comes at a cost, too. There is nothing you can do about it. For what does not fly does not fall. hi

      Automate so that pilots keep their hands away from aircraft controls when refueling.

        With the introduction of the MQ-25 Stingray, a lot will change. During the refueling process, the systems of the refueler and the refueled one will work as a single complex. However, manual refueling skills training will still be preserved.

          A lot will change with the MQ-25 Stingray.

          And does the MQ-25 fit a lot of fuel? For naval aviation, it will do, they have to refuel in the air to full, otherwise the BZ decreases.
          It's too shallow for the Air Force, they need cops

            The MQ-25 is an unmanned tanker capable of taking off from the deck of an aircraft carrier using a catapult and carrying up to 6,35 tons of jet fuel at a distance of up to 800 km, significantly expanding the combat radius of fighters such as F / A18E / F and F-35C Joint Strike Fighter ... For example, the Super Hornet carrier-based fighter-bomber with a range of 725 km after refueling can increase it to 1125 km.

      They have 52 of them left in the ranks. And 27 more are being built to order. So, the main thing is that people are safe, and they will still make a piece of iron.

    Mastery ?!
    When refueling at the back of the tanker, destroy the three engines that are in front? laughing
    This is yes, this is a real skill.

    What could a tanker have damaged itself? That he broke for himself that he had to sit in the field? Campaign there is ruin in the heads of the pilots.

    There are no questions regarding the qualifications of the KS-130 crew, it is the highest. But the qualifications of the penguin operator raises questions.
