    I heard that their pilots after the ejection are written off from flight operations

      In the USSR Air Force, there was no compulsory write-off after the bailout. The pilot necessarily passed the IHC, but as a rule, after the 3rd ejection (exceptions were apparently only for test pilots), the pilot was not allowed to fly for various reasons.

          exactly ... VVK, then VLK! After the ejection, the crew underwent a military medical commission with an in-depth medical examination, then the VLK was allowed to fly. So I remember

            So, what would be purposefully written off according to VVK, VLK ... there was no, but then they collided in the air to intercept, well, they did not fly anymore, both of them were on the ground, although one was injured, and even then it was not critical. They often wrote off the spine, not all belts were adjusted to the stop ...

        Is this the habit of pulling a little by the handle?

          By the way, the right habit. During OBD, the probability of an emergency exit from the aircraft is very high. In these conditions, the pilot should not be surprised at the influence of new factors for him, such as the impact of the oncoming air flow or the force of compression of the VCC, which is different from the one at the pre-flight check, but calmly control the process and navigate on the spot. It is difficult to even get a grenade out of the layout during parachuting, a good half falls out (I tried it on the suspension system). Aimed shooting is completely utopia.

    Before the collapse of the USSR, all kinds of air crashes and man-made accidents also rained down from the Horn of Plenty.
    Affected by the weakening of American statehood, erosion and degradation of Power.

            Planes are not a pity, but if there was a very young cadet, then yes. It is a pity, because one cannot unequivocally count him as an enemy.

              The USA is completely a potential enemy with all its contents. Or how, before the Great Patriotic War, it was believed that in Hitler's Germany there is a friendly proletariat that will not allow war with us, but which then destroyed the peaceful population of the USSR.

      Yah! Will the printing press break down? Hundreds of billions will be exported from the country? It's too early to bury you zashtatnikov. And the comparison is completely inappropriate. Flight accidents happen all over the world. Look, last year we had two SU34s collided, what can you say about this?

          By the way, enlighten about the "troubles of the US Navy". With ships, personnel stress? The cat wept at the shipyard? Describe their troubles, at least I can compare it with our fleet.

                  Who knows. Vaughn saw a demotivator with an "iron man" in whose hands was hohloprapor. If you consider the Naval Forces to be "native" for me, then I will indescribably be glad to read about the "troubles" of the Russian Navy. This is what I mean. The American navy is a force that cannot be competed at the moment. Historically, they developed the fleet and aviation in the first place. And their problems are worthless. At least a hundred planes will crash.

      The ILC originally planned to replace the Harrier with an F-35B by 2025. But a month ago they wrote that deadlines are shifting, so the Harriers will remain in the ILC until 2029.

      Yes, these aircraft and airplanes are difficult to call. Probably, as a technique, they are worthless.
