Military Review

Off the coast of the United States, two F-18s collided.

Two American carrier-based fighter-bomber F-18 collided on the eve of the coast of North Carolina. As a result of the collision, the planes fell into the water, while the F-18 crews managed to survive. One American pilot was injured. This is reported by the TV channel MSNBC with reference to the US Coast Guard.


The report says that the pilots were picked up by a merchant ship, which took place in the square where the two aircraft collided. After the servicemen were taken aboard, they were handed over to the coast guard, who sent the pilots to a military hospital located in Norfolk.

Off the coast of the United States, two F-18s collided.

Military Hospital (Norfolk)


The collision of two aircraft occurred during the execution of their regular training flight.

Pentagon officials have not yet commented on the reasons for the collision of two carrier-based fighter-bombers. In a statement, Peter Cook, a spokesman for the main US military department, said that "an inspection has been launched on the fact of a flight incident."

Medical workers at the hospital in Norfolk say that the lives of pilots are out of danger.

      How could they come across? They walked in one direction, otherwise no one would have survived!

        It's good that the pilots are alive. And collisions happen to everyone and always, remember the same Russian knights. We have 30 years ago a textbook story happened - during the development of the "dog dump" two F-15s collided, one of them was left completely without a wing and managed to land.

      Well, as the saying goes: "Everyone judges to the extent of his depravity."
      Here they are, knowing how their "aces" fly, and they fear the approach of Russian fighters to their planes in the air!
      I do not mean pilots of naval aviation, with aircraft carriers.

        So it is written that the pilots of "carrier-based aviation" collided. The most amazing thing is that the pilots were saved. So there is no silver lining, a flight accident will be studied for the reliability of rescue systems. And they could collide from anything.

      This is still normal. Amer in fact 11 carrier-based air groups. Judging by publications of a state of emergency of this magnitude, they rarely happen.

        Surprisingly, I did not notice comments like: "The main thing is that the pilots are alive, and I don't mind the piece of iron, they are just soldiers and are doing their duty laughing "And then earlier, such an opinion often slipped from the liberal-tolerant forum users.
        Well, I regret what happened, it’s a pity that they were saved.

      Yurich, do you know how the news of a similar incident with our planes would be titled on some Ukrainian "Censor"? Well, something like this: "Born to crawl cannot fly: two racial rusty fighters collided. The crews, unfortunately, survived."
      We are kind people, nevertheless. And this inspires optimism - the victory will be ours! Good is always, sooner or later, evil conquers. Right?

    The density of American fighters in the sky near the coast of North Carolina just rolls over. It is difficult to fly there in order not to collide with your own kind. But in addition to jokes, I decided to try to copy the air stunts of our pilots over the Baltic Sea and tov ... there was not enough professionalism.

      I agree, most likely one of the pair "twisted" or lost control of the car, and both pulled the "red handle" But the cars without control collided. Overestimation of one's capabilities always leads to such consequences.

    Most likely, the leader and follower clashed in a pair, otherwise no one would have survived. Stupid, of course, but it happens. Do not gloat. We, if you remember, when they gave kerosene in parts and the flight intensity increased sharply, there were also many flight accidents. Now pulled in, it seems to have become smaller.
    And these are "palubniks", the elite of the Matrasia Air Force. Must be very well prepared. Did not help...

    Collisions in the air are a fairly common type of flight accidents, for everyone. There may be fault and pilot (or both), or those who controlled them from the ground. Maybe there is no one's fault, this can also be. It is unlikely that they (Americans) will to tell something, so one can only guess.
