            And the city thought: "Learning is going on ...". What heroic pilots in America, the plane is thrown over the city, if only to save their asses (in America they love this word). With us and with owls. authorities and to this day the pilot takes the emergency vehicle away from people, sometimes at the cost of his life. There is an abyss between our and Amer's worldviews.

              That's for sure! They (the pilots) save their asses, which inspires certain thoughts ... lol And our pilots save the lives of people from a falling plane! A LIFE!!! AND ASS! They will never defeat us! We think about different things !!!

      I did not check it myself, but there is an opinion that this is a "second term syndrome"; a large number of high-profile incidents in syshya are covered by the press for some reason in the second presidential term. Masons gradually accustom their servant to the idea that the president can easily become ex-status, they say it still didn’t work out very well, but we remember how you served us faithfully, but we don’t take it off you turned it yourself you see the jambs. And then, what good will some Stalin's syndrome have for some president and will be worn out

    Little information in the article. F-16 is one of the most widespread aircraft in the world, and the most popular and reliable ones are not so bad; more than 4500 of them were produced. And there are accidents for everyone. The pilots survived, this is good, they are people like everyone else, they are just soldiers, and I hope that peaceful people did not suffer either. Tragedy is tragedy everywhere, both in America and in Russia, it’s someone’s fate, life, tears. I hope that there will be no military confrontation between our countries, and they, the Americans, will remain only worthy competitors. They would not exist, and our military industry did not develop at such a pace. If airplanes exploded en masse, which would indicate their technical unsuitability, I still understand that one could rejoice, and so why gloat? One plane for America does not count.

    The fact that the F-16 "crashed" (as in the text), and for some reason the pilots could not take him away from the city. Our flight crew is not taught like that!

      so many restrictions were imposed on our flight crew on the passage of cities in altitude, and not only that it would not take sin away from the city. In Europe, combat aircraft regularly rush at extremely low altitudes, regardless of the settlements, hence, if the engine stops, then only pull the catapult handles, and there excuse the national security costs, though insurance is not frail for the victims ...

    Still, how different are the traditions of our flyers and the American.
    It is with us - to take the plane away from the city, even at the cost of your life, but with them - save yourself, and where the plane will fall is no longer my problem.
