US Navy T-6B Texan II trainer crashed in the United States

In the US state of Alabama, a US Navy T-6B Texan II trainer crashed, killing both pilots. This was announced by the press service of the US Navy on Twitter.


A T-6B Texan II plane crashed in Foley, Alabama, at approximately 17:00 pm local time (01:00 Moscow time Saturday) today. The crew did not survive

- stated in the press service of the Navy.

It is specified that the plane's crew consisted of two people. Their names were not disclosed.


According to the city police, the plane crashed near the school, and a nearby house caught fire. The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Press Service said no one was injured in the incident.

None of the civilians on earth were hurt. Department of Defense and Navy officials fleet will investigate

- said in a statement.

The reasons for the crash have not been established; the US Department of Defense and the Navy will be investigating.

The T-6B Texan II turboprop is used as a training aircraft for the training of pilots in the Air Force, Navy and the United States Marine Corps. In 2018, a whole series of cases of clouding of consciousness was recorded in pilots who piloted these aircraft. As it was later established, the cause of the sudden ailments was a sharp change in the composition of the breathing gas supplied to the pilots' masks. This problem has existed since 2001, but in 2018, due to the increased frequency of loss of consciousness by pilots, flights of the T-6B Texan II were suspended indefinitely.

    The fact that the pilots died solely for human reasons and I express my condolences. October is something "rich" in flight accidents in various countries.

      I completely agree. Better to remain silent.
      A teacher who served in the navy said that he witnessed how in the Mediterranean he witnessed the disaster of an American fighter when landing on an aircraft carrier.
      Back in Soviet times.
      the Americans lowered the flag and announced the death of the pilot on the radio.
      The captain of our ship, also on the radio, expressed his condolences.

        The raised, dead Soviet sailors of the submarine K-129, the Americans buried with all honors under the flag of the USSR Navy.

      Problems with the systems for ensuring the supply and quality of air mixture for the USAF are becoming symptomatic and traditional.
      Here is the F-35, Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II and here is also the T-6B Texan II training turboprop.

      Video about the quality of the mixture, and the reasons for its quality outside the norm.

        As you wish, but the feeling is twofold. It's good that I didn't fly into school, it's bad that the relatives of the pilots experienced such a misfortune. However, such a thought is also present - if something goes wrong, one vehicle and two pilots have become less against us. I understand that it is cruel, that it is inhuman, but ...

          And there is nothing to pity them.
          90% chance that they welcomed the sanctions against Russia.

            It's a pity anyway. Our business is a soldier's, but our civilian households are not shittier than ours. And wait, and ... but what can I say!

              The division into soldiers and civilians de facto disappeared already in the Second World War, when a home front worker became as much an enemy and a legitimate target as a soldier with a weapon in his hands.
              In modern hybrid wars, this difference is all the more insignificant.

                I won't say about World War II. I'm talking about my own, "girlish". I remembered how my little reed with the firstborn in her arms flew to Chirchik. The eyes are blue with a saucer and they are so scared! And I directly saw him leave when I began to speak. How many years have passed, and I still carry on my hands and I ask for forgiveness for these eyes. Eco what a strong drink, so punch me on the lyrics!

            99.999% They are not allowed to drive until they shout loudly, three times: "I support sanctions against Russia!"
            "Victory" again, Zempo? You waited for another fall of the amerskoy plane. Now with the victims. As you like.

        We can add the F-18, which had serious problems with these systems, when the pilots were recorded dizziness and fainting, which were associated with the supply of polluted air.

          This is all the struggle for legalization in the States.
          They turn on the compressor, and they themselves will sit around it jambs to smoke, so the pilots then lose consciousness.

        Loss of spatial awareness also occurs in normal situations, even in civilian pilots.

      So their F-18 fell before that.

    "... a series of cases of blurred consciousness in pilots ..."

    The pilots' clouding of consciousness came from the fact that instead of oxygen masks, they put on medical covid masks, they were afraid of getting infected.

      I always wet the mask with isopropanol before going out. Firstly, for disinfection (this is the basis of most really acting quick antiseptics), and secondly, for clarifying consciousness. Better clarifies than a hundred and fifty without a snack.

    Something the USA has a problem with the breathing mixture, then the f35 pilots are suffocating, they complain en masse, then the f22, the same song, now on this plane the problem is one to one! What a great attack, such a country as the United States and unable to solve the problem? ??
