A Japanese pilot was on board the plane T-38 Talon that fell in the USA

Some details are coming from the USA related to the crash of the T-38 Talon Air Force trainer. Initial reports reported that the plane crashed near Montgomery, Alabama.


It became known that the data on the presence of two American servicemen on board the T-38 training aircraft did not correspond to reality. As it turned out, one of the crew members was a Japanese pilot who was sent to the United States to learn how to fly combat aircraft. aviation... At the same time, information about the death of both pilots was confirmed.

The Japanese press writes that this is the first disaster in the United States, in which a Japanese military pilot who was trained in the States died. It is noted that this is a lieutenant in the Japanese Air Force. Together with him, an American military pilot-instructor was on board the T-38.

At the moment, the circumstances of the plane crash are being clarified in the United States. It is assumed that at the time of the tragedy, the T-38 was controlled by a Japanese pilot.

According to the latest information, the training plane crashed about 3 km from the airfield. At the same time, the board belonged to the Columbus Air Base (Mississippi).

The young Japanese pilot was part of a unit attached to Hamamatsu Air Force Base in Shizuoka Prefecture. To obtain a license as a military fighter pilot (including for piloting the F-35), he arrived in the United States in 2019. The name of the Japanese pilot has not yet been reported, since, according to Japanese journalists, the country's military department has not yet received permission from his relatives.

For reference: T-38 Talon training aircraft will be 60 years old this year. The United States plans to end the use of such aircraft in 2026. The last such aircraft was produced in the 1970s.

      If on a kamikaze, then it's a pity that he didn't reach the Pentagon.

        I went over the ritual sake before the flight, so I missed.

          Well, America seems to have nothing to do with it ... But your division, what was the instructor doing there then? American instructors apparently do not shine with professionalism ...
          PS: well, that's me ..., it hurt that the Yankees everywhere want to go out clean.

      If on a kamikaze, then he coped with his task, like his great-grandfathers. He even more staggered an American and one American plane without damaging his own. Rating 5+

      Poetiszaugla .... Who was the Japanese taught? On a kamikaze or what?

      Maybe the other way around. A Japanese kamikaze patriot, took revenge on the "exceptional" for testing an atomic bomb on his ancestors. So it would be more logical ..... But ?!

        We take into account, of course, but in this situation it's still a pity.
        The enemy can also be respected, especially since he was still young and has not yet played a dirty trick.
        And the flyers are more sorry because my father flew and also fell.

      Not at all sorry.
      Do you think that today's Japanese are somehow different from those who killed thousands of Chinese?
      And the Germans who burned our children were completely different Germans, not the same as now?
      If the Japanese / Europeans / Anglo-Saxons had the opportunity, they would treat us no better than in the Second World War. And most likely much worse.
      So there is nothing to feel sorry for them. They are all bloodthirsty fanatics.

        I don't know if today's Japanese are ready to kill thousands of Chinese and everything else, but I don't think it's right to be glad that someone died somewhere in peacetime.
        If he was an enemy at the moment, I agree, but the attitude towards the enemy should not be an animal, if you consider yourself a man. If not, then whatever you want or can.

            I only regretted the boy-cadet in fact, who in fact did not have time to really learn the profession and can enjoy his work.
            Was he a sinister yakuza, a kamikaze I won’t guess, but the fact that there was a man and now he is gone ?! And this is not pity but regret, you are right. But have fun like Dill on the bone

        I think I’m fine with my head, I don’t think it’s right to wish and giggle about the death of people. The fact that he is in NATO and the enemy does not say that I personally must be a moral monster.
        Everyone should be responsible for themselves from the beginning, yes, he was preparing to be! And we must be ready! But I will not gloat over the death of anyone and anywhere personally, but you can have a drink - for peace!

    In Japan, I would have remained alive. T 38 is a great super duper plane. That there are no training desks in Japan. It was unambiguous that they worked out some secret program for two. That the USA and Japan are stirring up.

    I may be cynical, but for me this is the death of 2 potential enemies. Moreover, specialists. Fewer F-35 pilots will provoke (according to any, yapi will start soon) our Far East.

        Nonsense. Read less amer's manuals. It’s even too lazy to explain why China does not need the Far East.

    Instructor and student. What did the instructor do? A cadet could mess up, but the instructor must also direct the piloting process. The Yankees' competences are falling, as are the flying machines.
