Tragedy at airshow in canada

55
The tragedy ended one of the performances at the air show in Canada. Pilot Bruce Evans, piloting the T-28 Trojan plane, performed the aerobatics - the “loop of Nesterov”. As a result, the pilot lost the ability to control the aircraft, and he collapsed to the ground a few dozen meters from the territory in which the spectators were located. The pilot died.


Tragedy at airshow in canada


According to the latest data, there are no victims or damages on earth.

TV channel CBCNews reports that Bruce Evans was an experienced pilot. His flight time was more than 4 thousand hours.

An investigation team is working at the crash site that will determine the causes of the plane crash. According to one version, a pilot could have health problems while performing aerobatics. A check is being conducted on whether a medical examination of an 59-year-old pilot was conducted according to all the rules.

For reference: Cold Lake Air Show is held annually in the Canadian province of Alberta. Aerobatic teams and individual pilots are invited not only from Canada, but also from other countries of the world.

It is known that Evans was an amateur pilot. His profession is a geologist, but this did not prevent him from improving his piloting skills for light-engined airplanes for many years, starting from a young age. In 2007, he purchased the T-28 Trojan plane, on which he performed aerobatics in front of the audience.

          A young man, in order to troll smartly, you need to turn his head at least a little bit. And here I am already observing in my second topic just verbal diarrhea. Apparently, as you say, you live through, excuse me, ass.
          Regarding the article ... The pilot is simply a lover of the sky, not a combat pilot. He took the plane away from the crowd, honor and praise to him.
          I am sorry for his family and friends.

            By the way, there is something to discuss. For example, compare with the case at a show in Ukraine in 2002

            The soundtrack is a mistake - the Su-27 is named Su-17.
            And the scariest shots are not shown (however, those who wish can find them on the same You Tube). The pilot of the Su-27 was Vladimir Toponar, a former test pilot of 929 GLITs, who in 1992 switched to the Armed Forces.

          it was his choice.
          I did not hear that Western pilots at the cost of life tried to take the plane away from people.

          A true lover of heaven died, the earth rest in peace for him, condolences to his family.

          If you don't want to die - "don't go for a walk in Africa." If you want to be a military man, be ready for that by following the order. Or is it not clear already?
          The point is that there are incidents, accidents with victims, TRAGEDY is originally a theater genre, subsequently transferred to literature. Now she is a metaphor for cunning journalists. Tragedy can be played out or end with it, even if played by nature. Show with an accident and no more, from the incident section. Tragedy could have happened if the plane crashed into the audience (God forbid). Why is it incomprehensible, gentlemen, minusculeers for Canadians survivors? lol

        Dear, you can be rude to watch. On your other positive actions, I have deep doubts.
        And the fact that the deceased "ace" was chopping money on a show in Canada is their business.
        In my post, I did not gloat, but expressed my opinion FACT.
        And the fact that the minded minus, so is also their business, and their relationship to what is happening.

          When living women, old people and children were bombed from the air in Lugansk and Slavyansk, Canada did not call this a tragedy. They were silent, but mocked at Ukrainian sites. I wrote that the death of a pilot is a grief for the family. Or is it a world tragedy? Why put a teardrop on display? Note weepers, damn it! Maxim died and to hell with him! Who is he to you? request Ordinary NATO.

            And you worry a lot about the people, for example, Uganda or Zaire, and there, after all, the war went on and on? Otherwise, type in YouTube, there are many "colorful" videos as people are cut to pieces with knives. Something I do not remember on this site a single article about these events, and even more so your emotional comments.
            So why should Canadians shed tears about "some" Ukrainians on the other half of the globe? And what about the abuse ... one could, of course, ask for prooflinks in the studio, but what's the point))

              Speak reasonably. Canadians have enough of their everyday problems. And what is in Ukraine is their problems. How and why these problems arose, everyone has their own opinion. Over in Alberta due to the decline in oil prices with job problems. There is nothing to pay for housing. And he doesn’t ask the bank if you have money or not. The monthly payment was not paid and ALL of your savings in things were taken out onto the street. You are nobody.

              And what is there somewhere. So far away. This is not cynical. This is materialistic.

                At the expense of the whole West, you greatly exaggerate. Mocking someone else’s grief, it’s not human at all, but there are enough nasty people in the West and the East. Here is an example for you - a deputy of the Rostov City Duma Anatoly Kotlyarov on a Facebook page published a caricature of the events in Nice (France), where more than 80 people died and several dozen more were injured in the attack.

      I didn’t hear, it doesn’t mean

      The spokesman for the aerobatic team, Christopher Hammond, noted that the pilot was preparing to land, turned off the engine when an “incident” occurred, and the pilot reported on radio communications about problems with the aircraft and that he was about to eject. Malfunctions arose when the pilot flew over the populated areas on the way to the airport, 25 km from Peterson Air Base.

      “He made all kinds of attempts to maneuver so as to divert the plane from the population,” Hammond explained.




      According to eyewitnesses, the plane crashed into the field, there were no casualties and casualties on the ground. It is noted that, despite the fact that the pilot had to eject, he managed to land the plane intact. As explained by the press secretary of the Peterson air base, Jeff Bon, the speed was low and the plane before the crash was close to the ground, pressed into the soil, slipped a little on the ground, but remained intact.




      On the same day, a plane crash occurred in another American state, and as a result of which the pilot was unable to escape. In the city of Smyrna, Tennessee, the F / A-18 aircraft of the United States Naval Air Force Blue Angels crashed. He piloted a car, which, according to American media, also had tail number 6, a naval pilot, captain Jeff Kuss. It is reported that Kuss joined the Blue Angels air group in the 2014 year, from the naval aviation he was commissioned in the 2006 year, he had a 1,4 flight of thousands of hours and served in Afghanistan, and was awarded medals.


      Mayor Harry Gill emphasized that it was thanks to the pilot that none of the citizens on earth was injured.

      Blue Angels preparing for a performance at an air show. The incident occurred during training flights. After the falling plane hid behind the trees, eyewitnesses saw a large fire from behind the forest. However, they say that ten minutes after the accident a small thunderstorm started, but there was no rain during the crash of the plane.

And the plane didn’t cough, and flew away to Belgium, until there was enough kerosene. And there he collapsed into a residential building. But in my opinion there were no victims.

            On July 4, 1989, the MiG-23M, flight number 29, which belonged to the 871th fighter aviation Pomeranian Red Banner Regiment, piloted by the head of the political department of the 239th fighter aviation division, Colonel Skuridin, took off from Kolobrzeg airfield (Poland). The fighter was armed with 260 rounds of ammunition for the onboard 23 mm gun. At the 41st second of the flight, there was a sudden decrease in engine speed, the pilot noted a pop in the left air intake, a drop in thrust and a decrease in the aircraft. Skuridin took the accidental shutdown of the afterburner as a stop of the engine, informed the flight manager of his decision to eject and, after receiving the appropriate command, ejected. The fighter stopped the decline, went into horizontal flight and disappeared from sight. The flight was carried out on autopilot, and after the engine revs were restored, the aircraft was automatically transferred to climb and automatically continued flying westward. A friend or foe identification system has been enabled; the plane flew unhindered over the territory of the Warsaw Pact countries - Poland and East Germany. When he crossed the border between the two Germanys, two F-15 Eagle fighters of the 32nd US Air Force tactical fighter squadron, piloted by captain J. D. JD Martin and Bill Murphy, were intercepted from Susterberg air base (Netherlands). At 10:05, both F-15s intercepted the intruder. Having convinced (not at the first attempt) the dispatcher that they were observing a Soviet fighter without a pilot and with a torn cockpit light, the pilots were ordered to shoot down the MiG only as a last resort. The plane flew over densely populated areas, and it was impossible to predict where it could fall from such a great height. Accompanied by both F-15s, the MiG-23M flew over Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and was already approaching France and the city of Lille. American pilots decided to shoot down the plane if it became clear that he could reach Lille, but this was not required: just at that moment he ran out of fuel and began to gradually lose altitude. At 10:37 CET, a fighter plane fell on a farm building in the Belgian village of Bellegem near Kortrijk, killing a civilian in his own home.
            Belgium and the Netherlands sent protest notes to the USSR in connection with the fighter’s flight and catastrophe, however, thanks to the warming relations between the two blocs, the situation was resolved quickly and painlessly. Igor Skuridin expressed his condolences to the family of the deceased. The USSR paid Belgium compensation for the destruction of $ 685.

        There are heroes in all armies, no doubt, but only a few. But such mass heroism as the Soviet people during the Great Patriotic War, There was no where. Of the opponents, only the Germans fought with dignity, the rest, and the allies, including, by and large, are not opponents. Heroism as a concept is not part of the ideology of Western armies.

Serially produced in 1950-1957 (1948 vehicles were produced), until the 1980s the US Air Force and Navy were used for basic training of pilots. Successfully used as a light attack aircraft during the Vietnam War and in Laos ... Has a resource been developed, or what? Of course, sorry for the pilot.

      In the same United States very carefully and reverently treat the old aircraft of the Second World War and the Cold War. And not only their own production, but also their opponents. In addition to fairly fresh samples, in the hands of private owners there are replicas of newly built or carefully restored planes of the 30-40s. At aviation festivals and exhibitions, such Soviet rarities as I-15, I-153, I-16, Po-2, Yak-3 and Yak-9U are regularly shown. According to the register of the Federal Aviation Administration, in the private hands in the United States there are about 600 units of aircraft manufactured in the USSR and Eastern Europe. This list includes only equipment with valid certificates of airworthiness, and it does not include hundreds of museum exhibits, combat aircraft and helicopters belonging to the Air Force and Navy, as well as non-flying specimens rusting at various airfields. The leader is the piston Yak-52, of which there are 176 aircraft.
      Well, what can you take from them - they are "stupid"!

      At least for his relatives this is a tragedy. I do not see any reason to discuss anything at all. The man died. May he rest in peace.

    Let him rest in peace. Sincere condolences to relatives and friends.
    PS. And 4000 hours of flying time for an amateur is cool. Few professionals have such a touch. Rather, the technique failed ...

    It’s a pity the pilot, but at this age, flying, even if your health is excellent, you need to be careful.

    The permissible overload for civilian aircraft is up to 2,5 g. Experts have found that the pilot of a sports aircraft experiences overloads from −7 to +12 g when performing aerobatics. You exclude all possible versions of what happened, including the state of health of the pilot at the age of 59!

    The sky is for the pilot that a cigarette for the heavy smoker. He will die, not quit. Rest in peace to the peasant ...

    In the GSVG in the eighties. I don’t remember. Drying or Mig. When taking off the engine pompanul-pilot immediately ejected. And the plane didn’t cough, and flew away to Belgium, until there was enough kerosene. And there he collapsed into a residential building. But in my opinion there were no victims.

    There was a sacrifice. the guy died in this house, years 17-18. paid compensation
