Fighter crashed in southern Turkey

28

The information about the fall of the Turkish Air Force fighter was confirmed. According to the latest information, we are talking about the Northrop F-5 fighter, which performed a scheduled training flight.


Turkish media reports indicate that a Turkish air force plane crashed in the province of Konya, in the south of the country.

It is reported that the crash site of the fighter has been found. At the same time, no official data on the fate of the pilot is provided at the moment. There are statements from media representatives that the Turkish pilot was killed. The name of the pilot is also called - Burak Jenchelebi. If we are talking about one pilot, then, probably, the fighter was not a training one. And several training versions of the F-5 are in service with the Turkish Air Force.

There is no exact information yet about a specific modification of the aircraft. In all likelihood, we are talking about the F-5E version, which has been operated by different countries of the world since the 1970s.

On the spot, in the area of ​​the settlement of Karatay, fire brigades are working, ambulances have arrived. Rescuers are collecting the wreckage of the plane.

    It is strange that the old 50s, built by the Dutch under license in the amount of a little more than fifty, is still flying.

        As it was in the movie "Solitary voyage": "And such tasks are given only by a suicide bomber." Those who shot down the Boeing 100% are no longer alive.

    There is no exact information yet about a specific modification of the aircraft.

    Other resources indicate NF-5 (formerly Dutch). Recently in Taiwan, two crashed, now in Turkey, it's time for F-5 to retire.

        Right.
        And in general, the question is whether they are human, since they are staring at someone else's form and are plotting against Russia laughing

        I agree. It is difficult for people with a fine mental organization to understand, but these are their problems. Turks in NATO. NATO is not even close to us. Minus one NATO pilot, it is easier for ours, if that.

    Not a bad enough st, something like our MiG-21 bis.
    Who cares, in more detail: http://www.airwar.ru/enc/fighter/f5e.html
    And fell, well, it happens, it's aviation. For me, the competence of Turkish aviation specialists is slightly higher than the Hindus. There are many reasons to paint it lazily.

      Not "something like Mig21" but much better. In my opinion, the only time the Americans managed to make a maneuverable light fighter and did not turn it into a strike fighter. (What did they do with the F-16). Read what an unpleasant surprise the tests of the F-5 in the USSR brought. Even the MiG-21 could do little with it in close combat. https://diana-mihailova.livejournal.com/839684.html. And as the experience of battles showed, missiles with a semi-active seeker were not very accurate. In terms of maneuverability, the F-5E was superior to both Migas. A powerful radar was installed on the MiG-21BIS, and the radar was constantly improved on the F-5. Yes, Mig had more speed on the afterburner, and that's it. The Turks naturally have a better reputation than the Industries. At least because Turkish weapons have proven themselves very well in the United States, but Hindu ones ... perhaps Kerry sauce is definitely weapons of mass destruction :-) But the Turks have always been enemies of both Russia and Europe in general. I can't say that I feel sorry for the pilot.

    Good machine F-5E, maneuverable, cheap, reliable. I wonder what failed there. F-5E have always been distinguished by their reliability and simplicity.
