Incident at an airfield in the United States: Pilots ejected from an F-15QA fighter, intended for the Qatar Air Force

36

There are reports of an incident at the airfield in St. Louis (USA). This is the case when the pilots of the F-15 fighter carried out the ejection during the alleged landing of the combat vehicle.


At the same time, the reports on the incident are contradictory. According to some reports, the plane was piloted by US Air Force pilots, and the fighter itself was supposed to end up being transferred to the Qatar Air Force. According to other sources, an American instructor and a Qatari military pilot who was trained in the United States were in the cockpit of the combat vehicle.

According to the latest information, the bailout took place without injury. The pilots are examined at the nearest medical facility.

American media write that the bailout was carried out from the F-15QA aircraft. This is a special modification of the American all-weather fighter, which is created specifically for the Qatari air force.

The Qatari side has been informed about the incident. At the same time, official reports from the Qatar Air Force command have not yet been published.

A spokesman for the US Air Force notes that the plane arrived at the airfield this week for the final confirmation of readiness for flights and for subsequent transfer to the Qatari military.



At the same time, the published frame from the airfield in St. Louis gives reason to ask a question as to exactly at what point the bailout took place. The fighter is standing on the grass next to the runway without a "flashlight". Fire trucks are next to him.

    Particularly touching is the "recipe" - from the "all-weather" ..... All aircraft are "all-weather", first of all "all-weather" are pilots.

      It looks like the Qatari cadet got very scared and ejected himself along with the instructor. Or just clicked "something wrong" ...

      Flight training can be stressful and sometimes animal fear.
      I remember the study of autorotation on a helicopter, when the engine was turned off at 600 meters (piston Robinson, in most cases just to idle - the key to the left only once), step-gas down - and to the ground ... In silence, only the blades rustle! Wow, indescribable. And so several dozen times ...

            What can I assume that the engines got up (as an option, when harvesting revolutions on landing, I missed the ore and turned off the engines) on landing and the listener jerked. Otherwise, I would have rolled far, and here there is a whole one at the airfield ... Well, in general, it can be anything, this is aviation, sometimes there is no time at all for the right decision.

        they press a button in the elevator, and in the plane they pull out the ejection handle, and the K36 has a reverse grip. Why do you think? (a question by the way for everyone to fill in, please do not prompt the pilots) wink

            I also have this poster on the wall in the office. wink
            But why is the upper grip even forbidden by the instruction? ))) (if anything, then I'm not clever, but I want to explain it in an entertaining way)

              It is recommended to grasp the ejection handles with both hands, although technically the chair will also work from pulling the grip with one hand.
              But these handles are also an additional fixation of the hands to avoid their scattering by the oncoming stream and their damage.

                Yeah. A direct grip creates a trajectory of movement either towards the back of the chair or to the side on the retractable hand restraints, which leads to injury. The reverse grip anthropometrically does not give the spread of the arms and creates additional grouping of the posture.

          If you argue how the bailout from an American plane intended for the Kator Air Force has to do with Ukraine, I am sure that not only me, but many others will recall their disadvantages back.

    Eh, I wrote in quotes that he did not understand what he pulled ... Fear has big eyes, that's what I wrote. And the fact that the catapult is "pulled" is a no brainer wink
    And this is a type of excuse - "pressed, but it ..."
    Or he understood perfectly, but in a panic decided to save himself!

      Maybe, when landing, the pilots displayed a message about an engine fire, the instructor, in order not to risk the life of a foreign pilot, ordered an ejection, and the plane slid to the ground and stopped.
      Here is a similar case with the F-18

        Well, I don’t know, I once read an interview with Kvochur. He wrote that bailout from the ground, although acceptable in modern systems, is very risky. There is nothing to be crippled ...
        And Kvochur is a specialist from specialists.

          Bailout is an extreme measure and in any case is not useful and dangerous, even from the ground, in the air .. it is very easy to damage the spine ..

    And what is there incomprehensible? Israel and Qatar are at war in Palestine - the United States on the side of Qatar.
    But no one canceled the sabotage, the Jews simply destroyed the enemy F-15

    I agree with you about the K-36. I sat in it, but did not fly with it. On a helicopter and small airplanes, only without catapults. I know how it works.

    Then they began to find fault with my words for this phrase, about "pushing something wrong."
    And you can press a lot. Cut off the fuel, turn off the avionics, turn off the engines ... Start a little goat when landing and get scared, start clicking too much ...

    And you can press so that the instructor is scared to colic!
    After all, the instructor could catapult them because of a cadet's piloting error.
