The command of the US Marine Corps confirms the message that the F / A-18C fighter-bomber crashed on Thursday. The report says that the disaster occurred in the state of California, about two hundred kilometers east of Los Angeles - in the Mojave Desert. The aircraft was part of the 3-th air corps of the Marine Corps (home to the San Diego).



The plane was carrying out a combat training flight as part of the naval infantry exercises. The pilot had to drop the bombs on the target in the desert, but in the end, F / A-18C fell at the peak, from which the pilot could not bring the aircraft. According to confirmed data, the pilot was killed.

It is noted that in the area of ​​the combat training task, artillery operated, one of the objects of which the aircraft should have hit. A spokesperson for the Marine Corps reports that at the time of the launch, the artillery on the ground “took a break” on the ground.

Marines took part in the exercises on earth, which were divided into two groups. The task of one was to retain objects, the task of the other was to take control of objects. Aviation performed the function of supporting the assault group.

    Everything "pours" ...
    Even the planes of the most "exceptional" nation ...
    It reads:
    F / A-18C - variant with improved avionics and weapons (can carry UR AIM-120, AGM-65).
    The McDonnel Douglas F / A-18 Hornet aircraft itself, developed in the 1970s. The first aircraft in the US Air Force appeared on January 7, 1983 - in the 314th Fighter and Bomber Exadrille of the US Marine Corps "Black Knights" (VMFA-314 Black Knights).
    Everything has a limit of modernization ...

          I wonder why the military air force has such a high accident rate with a flight time much less than that of civilian passenger aircraft? By the way, thousands of passenger aircraft are constantly in the air in the world, but every day they do not fall due to a malfunction or pilot error. And military fighters, if you monitor the situation, fall in dozens a year, and in fairly developed countries where they are well served.

      Do you have a head on your shoulders? He is primarily a military man and took the oath just like they do here. Do not call trouble, such a crowd yelled at you, they say, how great it was when planes fell in the west a few months ago, but shut up with snot, and the Russian ones fell.

        Firstly, I did not arrange any dances, and secondly, not where he trained, but where he will fly on his phantom after this training, do you know? I do not, which Libya, Syria, Afghan or maybe Russia he was going to bomb on the orders of his command. Further, if only he was pulling his strap on a passenger Boeing, I would sympathize with him, but what about it: I flew to the range with a bomb and some kind of crooked mechanic didn't tighten his nut and flopped, sympathize? No, thank God, he is an enemy, the son of the enemy and the grandson of the enemy and all his ancestors were our enemies, and he did not reach the battlefield and glory to God that this is so.

        Do not chew snot on enemies, do not dishonor the nation "general".

          Firstly, if you have already undertaken to write, then study the materiel. "Phantom" - aka McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, has long been removed from the US Air Force. Available in some numbers in the Israeli and Iranian air forces. Accordingly, the pilot of the US Air Force could not fly this type of aircraft. It's a sin not to know. Respect your colleagues and site visitors. It's still "Voennoye Obozreniye", and not a platform - who will throw the slogan louder.
          Further, if only he was pulling his strap on a passenger Boeing, I would sympathize with him, but what about it: I flew to the range with a bomb and some kind of crooked mechanic didn't tighten his nut and flopped, sympathize?

          Name whose son crashed in this disaster? And if you cannot, then why show your dimness with an admixture of jingoistic patriotism?
          Do not chew snot on enemies, do not dishonor the nation "general".

    Emergencies occur during exercises in any country, incl. with human casualties. Therefore, of course, gloating is not worth it, but it is somehow too ostentatious to show how humane you are. Each army has its own problems. The main thing is that in ours there were as few of them as possible.

    They made me happy, otherwise I got bored, they haven't fallen for a long time. Apparently the bastards are very actively preparing for war, since they began to fall so actively. It's a shame that there was only one pilot there.
