“You have to squint. The green glow is intense ": the USA presented a report on the causes of the fall of the F-35 in Florida

87

The USA presented the results of the investigation, which is connected with the fall of the fifth generation F-35 fighter in Florida. This happened in May of this year with a fighter of the 58th Fighter Squadron of the 33rd Air Force Wing of the USAF. The plane carried out a scheduled night flight. Moreover, for the United States then it was the loss of the second 5th generation fighter in less than a week - before that, the F-22 Raptor was lost.


The US Air Force report says that before the fall of the F-35A "gave the pilot a lot of problems." The pilot reported problems with the operation of the multimedia helmet, the oxygen system, and the software of the on-board electronic flight control system.

At the same time, it is noted that the main factor that caused the fall of the aircraft was the loss of control over the speed mode - the landing speed was high (202 knots, about 374 km / h), the pilot could not reduce it against the background of numerous technical problems that arose.

However, the published report also states that the pilot himself made many mistakes while piloting. But it is immediately added that these mistakes were made by an experienced pilot, probably for the reason that he was tired from trying to solve technical problems and from lack of oxygen.

Interpretation from the report:

The pilot was fatigued, in part due to problems with the oxygen system, leading to cognitive decline, while the offset display on the helmet also signaled that he was distracted at a critical moment.

It was noted that the multimedia helmet was technically sound, but when the pilot performed various manipulations, it turned out to be shifted relative to the horizon. There was also a failure of the so-called visual projection, which led to a number of additional problems.

For example, under the conditions of a night flight, this led to a sharp jump in brightness on the visor (display) of the helmet - an intense green glow appeared, the pilot reported to the ground that he had to squint in order to somehow see the illumination of the runway.

From the text of the report - about the pilot's message:

I have to squint. The green glow is intense. Difficult to distinguish between the lights on the lane. Helmet problems.



The on-board computer at that moment gave the F-35A pilot the information that the position of the aircraft needed to be corrected, since for such a speed (indicated above) it was too low. The pilot began to make attempts to correct the position of the fighter, but further exacerbated the situation, focusing on the offset helmet display.

Then the pilot ejected. The plane was lost.

It was noted that several problems with the F-35A were confirmed - this is the ability of the multimedia helmet to disorient the pilot in the event of a shift in the visor, as well as the problem with the oxygen supply. Dozens of American F-35A pilots have continued to complain of fatigue during the flight due to lack of oxygen for several years.

    Dozens of American F-35A pilots have continued to complain of fatigue already during the flight due to lack of oxygen for several years.


    No matter what they say, but even the US military has a budget not rubber. You have to save. In this case, on oxygen for the pilots.

    Let them not fatten, and breathe every other time yes

              So I didn't understand, but throw off the helmet and visually sit on this pepelatse in any way? When throwing off the helmet, the plane considers the pilot dead and self-destructs or what?

      And really, if you think about it, it would be scary in the pilot's place. When all this expensive toy begins to "live" its own life, blocking your oxygen with a view, for reasons completely beyond your control, but continues to fly normally. You will feel superfluous, a report - bailout - dismissal on your own.

        It was the Chinese comrades who succeeded in supplying electronic components for the production of pilot life support and control systems for F-35 aircraft. As a result, airplanes have problems with the operation of the multimedia helmet, the oxygen system, and the software of the on-board electronic flight control system. yes

      Never, from the word never. Throughout their history, both written and pre-written, people only did what they fought. This is evolutionary nature. Everything and everyone around is destroyed. The environment, and it includes neighboring peoples, is brought in line with the ideas about the comfort of people.
      With what pleasure today's hegemony would have dealt with the unwanted, if the unwanted themselves could not destroy it.

    A question to the professionals, why didn't the pilot just take off his helmet and land the plane using visual reference points and instruments? Ours fly "under the curtain".
    Apologies in advance for the stupid question.

      I didn't understand this point either. Removing it quickly will not work - there is too little space above the helmet - but raising this "visor" is a matter of half a second. Apparently, he was completely worn out because of the listed problems. Confused. It is more incomprehensible to me why he did not go to the second round in order to catch his breath (in every sense) and not repeat the run in a calmer state.
      And "flying under the curtain" is an instrument flight, and you offer it a visual approach.

        Yes, I understand that on instruments. I meant that theoretically, he could land on the instruments, although since the lights on the strip are on, then there are visual cues. And then he ran into a faulty helmet and that's it. And to be honest, I also did not quite understand about the lack of oxygen ... he was at a low altitude, why should he breathe the mixture, knowing about the problems of this system, if he could breathe normal atmospheric air. And I also agree with you, if he sees that he does not hit the target of the runway, and the main systems of the aircraft are working normally, why didn't he just go around? But this is already the nagging of the couch flight expert on my part.

          Well, this "talking cap" made his brain so much that it was already having difficulty thinking. Yes, on the lane with serviceable lighting equipment there are all the tips for a normal approach and landing, moreover, on the MFD, everything is probably duplicated, including the course and glide path information. Park, "fucking factor". Maybe he already switched the air supply, but did not have time to wake up: the approach speed is increased, the runway is approaching, the height also decreases faster than used to - AAAAA !!! Well, and pulled the handles ...
          Perhaps it is true that pilots are increasingly turning into operators - there is no familiar automation, already a problem. And a couple more factors are added - the loss of a car.

                Actually, this suggests that the helmet was faulty. Software is now as much a part of technology as transistors and optical fiber. If the software malfunctions and the helmet began to lie, not giving out information adequate to reality, the helmet is faulty by definition. This is about the mechanical aviagirizont you could still say "technically sound, but the pilots drove the An-24 into conditions when the artificial horizon" collapsed "and" shifted from the horizon "", but not about the digital pribluda.

                    For example, in the conditions of a night flight, this led to a sharp jump in brightness on the visor (display) of the helmet.

                    It is written in black and white that the helmet itself was buggy: from uncontrollable brightness to some kind of problems with an incomprehensible orientation of the helmet inside the cockpit. This is clearly a failure of some sensors in the helmet itself, reporting about its tilt and Cartesian coordinates (laser gyroscopes and accelerometers). Therefore, most likely, the artificial horizon on the visor shifted relative to the real one. The pilot keeps his head straight, and the avionics thinks he tilted his head to the left and leaned forward slightly.

            They all agree. It is necessary to read the article not diagonally

            The US Air Force report says that before the fall of the F-35A "gave the pilot a lot of problems." The pilot reported problems with the operation of the multimedia helmet, the oxygen system, and the software of the on-board electronic flight control system.

            At the same time, it is noted that the main factor that caused the crash of the aircraft was the loss of speed control - the landing speed was high (202 knots, about 374 km / h), the pilot could not reduce it against the background of numerous technical problems that have arisen.

            Yes

        Oxygen was dragged here just like that, for this occasion
        he has no relation.
        The helmet requires hours of training on simulators.
        Not all pilots are capable of living in virtual reality for many hours.
        Therefore, the F-35 is more willing to take young people who are used to screens,
        virtual glasses and other gadgets.

    why didn't the pilot just take off his helmet

    Or maybe he just didn't understand that the visor was displaced?

    It was noted that the multimedia helmet was technically sound, but when the pilot performed various manipulations, it turned out to be shifted relative to the horizon. There was also a failure of the so-called visual projection, which led to a number of additional problems. Amazing statement

    And in battle, during overloads? Or do they sincerely believe that the "penguins" will shoot our fighters with super-duper missiles only by extremely smoothly maneuvering from afar? In short, you drag the F-35 into a maneuverable battle, at high G-forces, the pilot's helmet gets knocked to the back of the head, and it falls by itself ... economy tongue jokes as a joke, however, such failures leading to the loss of the aircraft are alarming. And if Russian hackers have already "made their way" into the software of these fighters and put "bugs" in them ... wassat what does it cost them if they even elect the president of the United States?

      Computerization is never excessive.
      Only insufficient.
      It is difficult for the "old generation" to get used to it (I myself belong to it, alas) -
      but it is so. Whoever has better computers, networks, sensors, displays will win.
      No personal skill, intuition, courage, heroism is able to outplay
      soulless, unemotional and - at the same time - ultra-fast computer.
      Pilots who cannot adapt to such helmets will retire from the Air Force.
      Whatever aces they are.

        But a technique without a person acts predictably, and if a person finds even the slightest flaw in it, he immediately uses it, and will use it against all copies of such a technique, but she will not be able to grow wiser before the next upgrade. This situation is beautifully illustrated in the film Teens in the Universe.

    The more complex the technique, the higher the probability of failure. A pilot accustomed to flying in "automatic" modes, when all flight parameters are calculated for him by the "technique", then if it fails, it is not so easy for him to quickly figure out the reason for the failure, and quickly make the right decision in order to avoid the transition into an "emergency". Once the pilots had no idea about "automatic flight modes", they worked with their heads, arms and legs, and when leveling up on landing, they felt the "ground" with their "butt". The more experience, the higher this "sensitivity".
    Nowadays it is not just pilots who fly, but pilot-operators "programmers".

          EVERYTHING will be chipped in 50 years.
          Without a built-in chip, you will be registered at the district clinic
          will not. This will become a medical norm, like taking a blood and urine test.
          The military, the officers, you are right, the use of biotechnology will occur earlier.
          No one has been surprised for hundreds of years by the glasses on the nose.

    It was noted that several problems with the F-35A were confirmed - this is the ability of the multimedia helmet to disorient the pilot in the event of a shift in the visor, as well as the problem with the oxygen supply. Dozens of American F-35A pilots have continued to complain of fatigue during the flight due to lack of oxygen for several years.

    It turns out interestingly. The F-35 pilot helmet is made for each pilot individually and costs serious money, but when the pilot performed various manipulations, it turned out to be shifted relative to the horizon.

      There was a pilot with us, he served in Vietnam in the early 70s, he said that ours did not participate in battles there - they only gave instructions. Intercept flights were prohibited. Nevertheless, from us - the Red Star, from the Vietnamese - also some kind of order, I don't remember. But he assured that he did not have a single combat sortie.

    This is the downside, electronic splendor, the slightest failure like a house of cards pulls a bunch of systems along with it, and a tired pilot, already overloaded with a bunch of information from dozens of systems, is simply lost and cannot do anything.

    it’s cheaper not to finish the helmet, but to stuff the ventilators into the plane so that the poor American pilots don’t suffocate.
