It is reported that the aircraft participated in a demonstration flight on the day of release at the academy. It is noteworthy that President Barack Obama attended the ceremony in Colorado.


Aircraft F-16, collapsed during the demonstration flight, was part of the aerobatic team "Thunderbirds". On Twitter, the aerobatic team published information that the F-16 pilot, the US Air Force Major Alex Turner had time to eject. According to information from the academy in Colorado, there is no threat to the pilot's life.

As a result of the fall of the aircraft, none of those who were on the ground was injured.

              Yes, it’s clear who else laughing

              Personally, I generally do not care what they really happened there. Aircraft crashed, it happens. Relatives of the pilot - condolences. And let the competent authorities establish the reasons, and not the advocates of conspiracy theories and fatalists on the Internet.

              PS only the pros and cons, then for what? I didn’t say anything, I just asked what Ami du people think could be wrong in the American kingdom?
              It seems to me that some monkey themes read and just poke the pros / cons out of place ... Just to poke.

Yes, we did die too, but the last death of a pilot of a Russian aerobatic team was in 2009 (we don't take into account last year's disaster with the Mi-28 Berkuts - it's still a helicopter aerobatic team). So, our aces in those years simply did not have enough raid, even the question was raised of disbanding the main groups - "Russian Knights" and "Swifts". And the Americans have never had any problems with kerosene ...
            Moreover, I have never claimed that everything is fine with us.

            A question for the flyers and people in the subject ... What should these groups (both ours and Amer) do in case of war? To which compounds or test structures are they assigned? Since these pilots are of the highest category, does the command have hope for their skills?
            It is very interesting, if this is certainly not a military secret ...

            There they made a switchman from the pilot. Who do you think is responsible for safety at such events? Spectators were directly in the flight zone. The plane fell almost on people, they simply had nowhere to go.

            In the news, it’s infa that the pilot, after the demonstrations, landed and already launched the landing gear, but as a result of an abnormal situation that arose on board the aircraft, he decided to take him to a safe place and eject, which he did. The act of the ace pilot, for this he received the gratitude of the president, we would also receive gratitude, this is a common practice.

        They will draw conclusions themselves. Carrying out flights is an experience associated with a deliberate risk of an accident (s). In 1980, over the course of one night, on May 11-12, the Air Force experienced 8 aviation accidents.
        It makes sense to evaluate only relative indicators, for example, the number of accidents per conventional unit of raid (average raid per 1 incident). Of course, the complexity of flight missions should be considered.

      On the one hand, we Russians unequivocally consider Americans to be our original opponents or enemies, as you like.
      But come on, the pilot died, i.e. the one who could bomb our cities tomorrow and kill our people, and condolences rained down.
      How everything is arranged in our heads is complicated.
      Even we ourselves are hard to understand. What to say about foreigners.

    "Blue Angel" is a strong aerobatic team, but unfortunately, the aces are not immune to death.
    In 2009, the commander of the Russian Knights, Igor Tkachenko, was killed.

          Do not catch up on the number of aircraft, the number of airfields, the number of passengers and cargo transported. Accident is considered not by the absolute number of aircraft in a crash, but by the number of accidents per x flight hours. Americans incomparably more than others fly. Hence the numbers of lost aircraft. And it turns out that in some Angola the accident rate is lower than in Switzerland. request

            I did not find sensible statistics on flight hours (for the USA). But I found the ratio of the number of flight accidents and casualties. Guess who comes first in the number of dead people per incident.

          In the United States, about 40 thousand per year die on the roads, in our region 27 thousand
          However, the risks associated with an accident in the Russian Federation are an order of magnitude higher than in the United States. The same is true in aviation. Think for yourself how to explain this?

    Loss of aircraft in recent years they have become more frequent. Recently, two f-18s collided, before this f-16, two helicopters crashed. Moreover, knowing the west, this is only what could not be hidden.
    Apparently there are several factors:
    1. Technique fails.
    2. The level of training of pilots is not the same.
    3. The training intensified sharply (in connection with 2).

      2. The level of training of pilots is not the same.
      3. The training intensified sharply (in connection with 2).

      Firstly, they simply do not have a comparable many aircraft, and secondly, with a huge number of aircraft, they also have really large raids.
      While everything is in order, they have more money for aviation than all the others combined, and no one canceled the emergency.

            On the use of DA in Afghanistan:
            Even with the bombing of "enemy villages", which completely swept away houses and Duvalas, the real effect was small. The power of the impressive-looking bombs was wasted: the radius of lethal damage by the FAB-3000 shock wave did not exceed 39 m and even for the FAB-9000 remained within 57 m.

    I will quote my own entry in FB, four hours earlier:
    “The Americans are unlucky, the second combat vehicle is already in a day. F-16 (I don't know in what modification, either F-16C or F-16D) near Peterson airbase. This was a member of the Thunderbirds aerobatic team. The pilot is alive.
    And the F / A-18 Hornet (again, they don’t say exactly which modification), in the area of ​​Smyrna, but this pilot was not able to eject. This was a member of the Blue Angels aerobatic team. The pilot died.
    Given this: the F-16C (single seat) and F-16D (two seat) variants entered production in 1984. The first C / D version was the Block 25 with improved cockpit avionics and radar which added all-weather capability with beyond -visual-range (BVR) AIM-7 and AIM-120 air-air missiles. Block 30/32, 40/42, and 50/52 were later C / D versions. The F-16C / D had a unit cost of US $ 18.8 million (1998). Operational cost per flight hour has been estimated at $ 7,000 to $ 22,470 or $ 24,000, depending on calculation method.
    then, most likely, the F-16C was involved in the first incident. "

The aircraft is a complex technical device that can fail at any time, here both the human factor and technical problems, he himself was an aircraft technician, factors influencing the successful completion of the task - the sea.

      I'm not sorry for you.
      For me, Americans are potential enemies.
      I do not believe in their sincerity, nor in their friendliness, nor in their disinterestedness, for the simple reason that they always see Russia and my people at the level of the Ebola virus, that is, as a potential threat, with only one difference 1. So far, determined. Although back in 2, US presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that Russia is the No. 2012 geopolitical enemy for the United States.
      If he dies from diarrhea, you express condolences to his relatives about the premature death, and I will just consider that Russia has become less than one enemy. There are more than 300 million citizens in the mattress state, and I am more than sure that most of them do not give a damn about the loss when they have a dozen citizens firing at the police every day.
      Now about the nickname. And what does he tell you? "For himself"))) For your information - Nyrob is in the Urals. I am a native of the city of Nyrob! (I was born in Nyrob) What marks this city in the Russian historical tablets - he took over the first of the Romanov dynasty in 1613, even under Boris Godunov. Perm received the second of the Romanovs, Constantine, and Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg now) received all the Romanovs and Nikolai. Ural-for the Romanovs a lost place.
      Your nickname - a flyer does not mean anything at all, and your "mosch" is not interesting to me.
      That dill flyer who hit the Lugansk administration on June 2, 2014, as a result of which civilians died, ceased to be a pilot from the moment of launch and went into the category of war criminals without statute of limitations June 2, 2014. All.
