F-16 Norwegian air force during exercises instead of a target fired at the observation tower

53
Information Agency Associated Press reports the incident during combat training maneuvers of airplanes of the Norwegian Air Force. The report says that the F-16 fighter, performing the flight, was supposed to strike an air strike against a target that was located about half a kilometer from the observation point. However, instead of the F-16 target, the Norwegian Air Force attacked the observation tower itself, in the immediate vicinity of which there were people (according to some sources, these are three servicemen).


The official representative of the Norwegian Air Force reports that the shelling of the observation post during a military plane’s training flight occurred last week. Events unfolded a few kilometers from the coast - on the island of Tarva.

According to the official representative of the Norwegian Air Force, the observation tower received "minor damage" and "no one was hurt."

The circumstances of the incident are clarified: why the pilot attacked not the proposed target, but the observation tower, and why at the time of the air strikes at such a small distance from the target there were people.

          In vain, ironic, in the exercises such moments unfortunately happen. belay So at one time in the USSR, a flight of the Su-17 due to an error of the leader during the "show" bombed the podium with the guests.

    A normal practice in exercises is to shoot not at what you need to, and at the same time to shoot accurately.

    Not only Norwegians, by the way yes

      In Hungary, the Su-80 and Su-17 did not miss the test site in the 24s, even at night, not once. To get to the neighboring village - do not FIG. They worked without jeepies and glonasses, only with RSDN (radio engineering system of long-range navigation). And THESE ... Why did he jump on the tower, why are these three alive?

    Everything can happen in exercises. He himself witnessed three cases when a gunner lost orientation during night shooting from tanks (BMP) and shot at an observation tower. By happy coincidence in all cases there were no casualties.

      It happened with us too. The novice gunner pulled the stabilizer horizontally and got lost. But as they say, it wasn’t confused, it opened fire from the machine gun, though not from the target, from the tower. At night, the tower with flashlights was also illuminated, but thank God without victims.

        During my service in the GSVG there was a bike that at night firing the tank shot at the luminous windows of the train. Electric trains in Germany were categorically unlucky. There was a case with a tank abandoned at the railway crossing and this is no longer a bike.

    Sometimes ...
    and in our exercises it was used to shell a shell at an observation post.


    during planned night firing at the Bobochinsky firing range, the crew of the T-80 tank lost orientation and fired to the side. The shell flew to the back of the range and landed in the observation post.


    ... people died ... two lieutenants.

    This is how to look ... If the damage to the tower is minor, then the pilot is zero lol Now, if he had smashed it to pieces, then we could talk about pilot qualifications. repeat And so it would be happiness, but misfortune helped and the tower survived laughing

    This is yes. A couple of weeks ago, while practicing "rapid fire", one of our tanks received a shell in the stern from a car from a neighboring company. Someone there crossed the unny bisector. In short, the higher the intensity of the exercise, the more frequent the mistakes.

        There is a double ambush:

        2. If you survived - worthless shells to her.

      From friendly fire, sometimes very significant losses happen ...
      unfortunately, no one is safe from the human factor in case of accidental shelling.
