Two unknowns on an off-road vehicle broke into Limur-Fresno airbase (California, USA) and rammed a military plane

67
In the United States launched an investigation into a strange incident that occurred at the Navy airbase Limur near the city of Fresno (California). CNN reports: The incident was that two unknown persons (a man and a woman) broke through the airbase checkpoint on the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, breaking a whole series of barriers and obstacles.


Then the unknown persons left the runway of the Limur airfield and rammed one of the military aircraft. As a result of the collision of the car with the plane, the last part of the fuselage was torn off. A man and a woman were reportedly killed as a result of the clash.

According to the official representative of the US Navy, the airbase suffered damage in the amount of about 60 million dollars.

From the statement of Captain Eshliman’s airbase commander (translation TASS):
Contrary to the existing security measures, something went wrong, an accident occurred. Combat aircraft suffered damage, two people died. We will have to think about how to prevent a repetition of what happened in the future.


Two unknowns on an off-road vehicle broke into Limur-Fresno airbase (California, USA) and rammed a military plane


According to Captain Eshliman, it is known that persons who were in the Jeep did not plan to commit a terrorist act or sabotage. Eshliman said that the car was on the territory of a military facility as a result of an attempt to escape the police prosecution. Before entering the air base, he was at the side of one of the roads. The police tried to check the driver's documents, but he sharply pressed the gas. Afterwards several police cars and even a helicopter were sent.

Particular attention is paid to the fact that since 2015, the Limour air base in Fresno has been among the most protected military installations in the western United States. Several million dollars were spent on additional security measures. After this incident, the effectiveness of security measures at US air bases raises serious questions.

        But I am wondering at what level at this super-secret facility, that is, the airfield, is the guard located? recourse It looks like their protection is only a name. I think that in Russia this will not work.

        They fled from the police - most likely on drugs, and it was arrest for drugs that they feared more than death. Such a small detail that is not very advertised outside the United States: if there are two convictions, even small ones, with a suspended sentence and a fine instead of a real release, then for a third, even if the crime is small, such as drug use, they can give life without the right to conditional early release. So he pressed on the gas without disassembling the road.

              Moreover, the heroin is singed. Here, what is not just under the guise of heroin, in particular a mixture of glucose with fentanyl. It sticks in no worse, but the count should go in milligrams and very accurately, because you can't overdo it like that. And if you also mix with booze, the result is unpredictable and often deplorable. But for those who are fond of this there is a road.

      Even state-of-the-art systems will not be able to lift the asses of the guard to detain the intruder during the time it takes for the car to travel a hundred - five hundred meters.

      X: This morning we were showing "Wait a minute."
      X: And so I figured out what the Wolf was doing before this whole carousel with the Hare, just watching how he behaves.
      According to my estimates, in the first episode he is 20-25 years old.
      Probably served in the army. Moreover, he did not serve in the construction battalion, but at least in the Airborne Forces. Where from? Let's see.
      Y: Interesting. Explain.
      X: Excellent weapon technique. And non-standard.
      Break the rope with a harpoon on a moving target.
      Using the lasso. Excellent physical fitness.
      He was able to disarm the enemy armed with melee weapons with a poker.
      Understands weapons of the past (catapult)
      Calm under fire (scene in the museum).

      Motorcycle, racing car, ice rink, excavator, airport cart, boat ...
      Y: Our answer to James Bond? Wolf-007.

      X: Again ... It's about cops. A sort of condescending and mocking ... We have this only the paratroopers on August 2 allow themselves.
      Y: And cheeky behavior
      X: Exactly.
      X: So I bet on the captain of the GRU.
      X: Fired, most likely for quarrelsome nature.
      X: And judging by the fact that the Hare is a natural major (just below why), then most likely it was someone's son.
      X: Hare major.
      So. It seems like a kid still, but his own apartment.
      Constantly in the leading roles. Sho at a concert, sho on television. He does not work anywhere, but everywhere he is met and allowed to pass.
      I even participated in the meeting of foreigners at the 80 Olympics. And this is wow ...
      Y: So I thought about GRU too. But the behavior is hooligan ... Not that education.
      X: This is false, pretend that you are the elite! And then bam! And you "for a well-deserved rest."
      Y: I don’t know, I don’t know.
      X: Still in the piggy bank. Great crowd behavior. Trained in tracking and identifying the enemy. Remember how quickly I found the Hare in a crowded park from the Ferris wheel. Sniper training is highly probable.
      Y: Yes, the set of qualities and skills is extraordinary

    the incident consisted in the fact that two unknown persons (a man and a woman) broke through an airbase checkpoint in a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, breaking through a series of obstacles and barriers.


    What are the barriers that the Jeep Grand Cherokee could not stop? In this situation, they should have been shot somewhere at the entrance, if they did not have time at the checkpoint. Or I don't understand something ...

    According to Captain Ashliman, it is known that the persons in the Jeep did not plan to commit a terrorist act or sabotage.


    Really? And if the attack had been planned, then, apparently, one could say goodbye to the air base ...

    Of particular note is the fact that since 2015, the Limur Air Base in Fresno has been among the most heavily guarded military installations in the western United States.


    And what is being done on the less protected ...

    Generally. It seems that in the US military and strategic facilities are largely guarded according to the principle of "mind you, I'm in a house" ...

    They seem to be so confident in the impossibility of attacks from within and in the insurmountability of the okiyana sea for external ill-wishers that they do not bother with the protection of serious objects on their territory.

    Though. The British, too, were confident in the insurmountability of the English Channel - at least until the middle of the twentieth century ...

      And, if not one jeep? And more passengers. And everyone is armed. Is that the base kirdyk?
      I happened to live not far from one of our air regiments (a military town, Soviet times), well, in addition to a barbed-wire fence around the perimeter, there was a moat of impressive size. And the military town adjacent to the service area is located so that getting into the territory is very problematic.

    Well, can we conclude that in the event of a real breakthrough of a truck with explosives, the base can be written off? If the jeep "broke through the fences", then the truck will simply drive through them without noticing. Yes, striped ears relaxed. For a long time no one bothered them seriously.

    about $ 60 million.

    Well, for the United States (as they believe), the damage is not significant. And who and why broke into the runway should not worry anyone (again, according to American thought). Now everything will be blamed on drug addicts and America can sleep peacefully until the next 11.09.

    From the statement of the commander of the Limur airbase, Captain Ashliman (translated by TASS):
    Contrary to the existing security measures, something went wrong, an accident occurred. Combat aircraft suffered damage, two people died. We will have to think about how to prevent a repetition of what happened in the future.
    A country of not frightened idiots ... Well, issue a law, like: "It is forbidden to enter a military base in a Grand Cherokee jeep if there are a man and a woman in it at the same time" ... You have laws written there like that ... From precedents.

    In general, we need more incidents in the United States so that they are not worried about other problems in Europe and Africa.

    Russian trace?
    And in life, they could have a more realistic excuse. And then it turns out that they ran away from the police and decided to hide at the airbase?
    Here two options suggest themselves, either our own (servicemen or personnel) from the base (like, there is no issue from the base), or, if they did not fit into the plane, they could enter one gate and leave through the other! laughing

      Why not? There, most likely, it is not specified specifically from a collision with what. Maybe there were even multiple clashes!

      yes, he is not like that and a jeep, so a SUV, and it would be more correct to write a piece of plastic against aluminum winkhe could crawl under the plane and the passengers' heads if they were fastened in a vice, or the horizontal tail (I don't know how to do it correctly) could get into the frontal, the chest or head separated from the body, there are a lot of options, sometimes it’s even impossible to understand how it happened

    Beautifully on paper, but forgot about the ravines ... Enough 3-x sniper shots, or one mine 122 mm, so that this cool wunderwafer would be silent.
    I’m silent about the need, as well as the effectiveness of shooting in a mask !!!

      And on the Jeep Grand Cherokee of these bursting in, was that?
      If anything, then this is va-if everything is purely rhetorical, there is no specific information.
