    The car is good but apparently old, the Americans have already released a new version that is completely modernized.

      Yeah, they just upgraded the same old F-16s. With an airframe and engine, on average, twenty years ago.

    Everything that flies is not guaranteed against a fall ... It happens. The pilot did not die and gloriously.

      On the F-16 ?! Do you know that not all planes allow this action, due to their design features?

      How do you imagine this with such a loaf of air intake like the F-16?
      This is what happens on solid ground. What will be on the water?

      The F-16 is a medium fighter with one (1) engine!
      IMHO: a fighter for the "poor" - he had no chance! It’s a bit heavy!
      - when the engine fails, the speed drops below the landing speed almost instantly
      - there is an instant stall of the air flow from the wing
      - stall fighter in the "peak"

      there is an automatic pilot ejection, used on carrier-based aircraft (a “command” was issued for a combination of several parameters ... a large roll angle at a low horizontal speed of the aircraft, etc.)

      It is not the only one, there are still wing and fuel, in such cases, they are pre-generated. In fact, the F-16 can land on its belly. Maybe the pilot was inexperienced or simply deceived.

      ------------------
      If it sits this way, then you need to burn the fuel, but the less fuel, the greater the likelihood of fire, since the formation of an air-fuel mixture, which actually burns ... In general, well, nafig, a pilot for discharge, a plane for scrap ...

      Dear Stanislav, this fuel tank is called an air intake. And many colleagues are right, an airplane with a fuselage arrangement of an air intake on the belly is practically impossible to land.

      Something like this, colleague, will be more accurate. hi

    The pilot did not die and all right, but the fact that planes fall sometimes.

    “Fima, do you know the difference between disaster and disaster?”
    - Shaw for the question, of course!
    - Can you formulate it?
    - Well, imagine - Aunt Tsilya fell ill. Trouble?
    - The trouble ...
    “But isn't it a disaster?”
    - Not...
    - But imagine - Tymoshenko and Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk flew to Washington, the plane crashed and crashed. Catastrophe?
    - A disaster.
    “But it doesn’t matter?” A.
