In the United States showed the appearance of the KC-130J tanker after a collision with an F-35 and an emergency landing

28

In the United States, they provided data on the state of aviation the KC-130J Hercules tanker of the United States Marine Corps (ILC) after its collision with the F-35 fighter.


Recall that this incident in US airspace occurred a few weeks ago - on September 29. Then the fifth generation fighter was lost - it fell after the collision, and the air tanker, having received damage, was forced to make an emergency landing. He landed on a farm field near the airfield.

It is known that after a collision with the F-35, the KC-130J tanker was partially disassembled. Parts of its design are based at Thermal, California.

Pictures of the disassembled air tanker are published in the American press and blogosphere, including The media Matt Hartman-shorealonefilms. They are published by the edition The Drive in its military-thematic section.

The pictures show damage to the skin of the air tanker, bent sections of the fuselage.

The US media points out that the exact reason why the F-35 collided with a tanker in the air has not yet been established, which led to dire consequences. It is known that both aircraft were used for training in the Marine Corps. The American press notes the "extraordinary composure of the KC-130J crew," which was able to land a multi-ton vehicle.

    Edrit madrit ... The pilots were lucky that they flew on the well-deserved and "indestructible" "Hercules"!

    Well, this is not critical damage, as soon as the investigation of the accident is completed, the tanker will be quickly returned to service!

      Intelligent pilots. Probably these did not complain about the "unprofessional actions" of our pilots when they intercepted them ...

        Our pilots are not intercepting the "refuellers" yet. wink hi

      Well yes. The bent fuselage will be stretched, the cracks in the frame will be welded, the skins will be trimmed, they will be smeared with putty. And it will be possible to sell someone unbit-unpainted. laughing
      But seriously, they will write it off.

        will be written off only when damage to the main power set of the airframe is detected: power frames in the center section or the beams of the cargo floor. Or they won't give money. request

    Hmmm ... The degenerates have nothing new))) They showed them ... A month ago, they didn't show THIS?

    the extraordinary composure of the KC-130J "crew, which was able to land a multi-ton vehicle.
    Tell me better, how did you manage to cut three motors out of four, cold-blooded? Was the hose wound in the fifth dimension, or was it fu-thirty-fifth from the first ram, failed? Or a newcomer was poured into three motors, the fourth was not enough - everything went into the bottle of Marusa singers to poison the bulk.
    Recently they have gone completely stupid there - they are being lowered over and over again. For instance. Means "fat dristun" wanted to go to the price of 70 lyam for the plane, now maybe three or three, but garbage, quite a bit? Tadam! Fanfare sounds and, breaking through them, a report on the landing of aircraft 12-5053 on May 19 at Eglin AFB. There der slapped, and the damage caused by the fact that the fighter could not be repaired - $ 175,983,949
    Call Flies to the Voyak, he will crush everything laughing

        Everyone saw the photo a month ago, and these ... American publicists, firstly, didn’t show a nifiga, and secondly, they didn’t even know how to ASSUME at least what was there. The tanker had to show "composure and heroism" in the air because on the ground there was "dementia and courage" - in a collision, 3 engines stupidly cannot be cut down, and the cable will not reach it. One at least stupidly died

    Stop, did they plant a tanker in the field? On the belly, that is?
    Y-yes. "You will want to live, and you will not be so hot."
    It seems that the entire crew was born there, not only in shirts, in bulletproof vests.
    This is no longer composure, this is frostbite on the whole head ...

      So that's not all - ON ONE MOTOR !!! Hercules!!! In general, they were extremely lucky. But the question is - HOW shibanulsya three motors from 4 ex? !!!

      yes the fuel was drained before landing. why not land an empty plane?

        Empty weight: 75,562 lb (34,274 kg)
        Gross weight: 164,000 lb (74,389 kg)
        Max takeoff weight: 175,000 lb (79,379 kg)

        35 tons on one engine? I think this is extremely extraordinary. Moreover, 35 tons is minus the courage that poured into the trousers of the crew. Well, there is still from above "composure" poured

          Well, the situation is of course emergency ... BUT during the Soviet times, during the training of the AN-12 crews in the 70s, they practiced piloting and landing on one engine (internal, i.e. closer to the fuselage which) ... the plane was designed for this initially ... maybe Hercules too ...

      excuse me, but in what did your "frostbite on the whole head" manifest itself? Is it a tanker or a belly landing? If you noticed, the photo clearly shows the ongoing emergency fuel drain (already by gravity). The total volume of Hercules fuel tanks is about 25 thousand liters and about the same, based on its carrying capacity, in the fuselage TB (they may not be there, they are removable, but we will take it to the maximum). I do not know the possibilities of Hercules for emergency draining, but it would take him 20 minutes from a full refueling. During this time, without haste, you can look at a good area, which the flyers did (better than a plowed field and you can't think of it, almost like on a sled in the snow).

        This is if the motors are out of order after landing. It can be assumed that he lost his right-handed ones in the air (a fighter helped), the left one, most likely, after landing on the belly, when the plane tilted to the left, as it went on the left-hand engines, which means that at the time of landing he had no hull. along the motion vector a at an angle to the right.

    In the photo, only the carcass is loaded onto the platform, tightened with belts and chains for transportation.
    Wings, engines, tail - removed.
    Technological panels are removed. The belly was stripped, most likely during landing.

    Lucky flyers on the TZ, otherwise I can't imagine how to jump from there, this is not a catapult on a fighter.

      How do paratroopers jump from the C-130? Through the hatches. When the militia shot down an An-2014 over Slavyansk in 30, the crew left it through the door.

          I do not think that after being hit by an An-30 rocket it flew strictly horizontally.

    In the US Air Force, the Hercules fleet is already very worn out physically, i.e. the problem is like in other countries, a new car of this segment is needed - both in the transport version and in the form of a tanker. As you can see, the problem is ubiquitous, both the replacement of Hercules and Ans due to the physical wear and tear of the fleet of cars. This means not only the replacement of machines, but also the necessary equipment and retraining of maintenance personnel.

    Which of this picture can be attributed to damage to the KC-130J as a result of a collision with the F-35, and what to damage when he practically sat on his belly in the field? Moreover, to facilitate transportation, all protruding elements are dismantled.
    So the photo is inherently unreliable!

    A case where everything went plus: skill, reliability and luck.
    How lucky the Czech stewardess, who, EMP, was flying in the wreck
    from 7 thousand meters.When the plane broke, she went for a couple of minutes
    in the tail, once, then in this tail flew to the ground or two, the tail along
    tangent landed on the slope of the mountain - three, at the end it hung in a snowdrift,
    hooked on something above the cliff-four, the huntsman who saw all this
    and who rushed off on skis was prepared - the doctors said
    that with such damage to the spine, it was enough to pull
    by the heels (and she only had heels and protruded from the wreckage), but he did not
    did - five times in a row could have died, but remained alive.
