F-16 vs Bird

I got this as a e-mail just now. It's prety interesting. (But involves the loss of an F-16 :cry:)

"Read before looking at the video.

 

Listen to how calm these guys are but notice how elevated their breathing gets before bailing..

 

Calm heads prevail when a bird flies into an F-16 engine.

 

Very cool footage from the cockpit of an F-16. What is even cooler is

the reaction and professionalism of the two pilots.

 

The video includes cockpit transmission with video F-16 engine ingests

bird after takeoff @ Tyndall AFB. I thought you might find it interesting

to see a crash from the cockpit of an airplane. Pretty interesting; it is

an instructor pilot in the rear and a student in the front seat of an F-16.

 

A "Bird Strike," as seen through the Heads Up Display (HUD). You can

see the bird flash by just prior to impacting the engine.

 

You can hear the aircraft voice warning system telling them they have

a problem and referring to the "D-6 NL" which means there is no engine RPM.

They made 2 attempts to relight the jet engine, but evidently there was

too much damage from the bird strike and they had to get out.

 

The se guys were very cool; note the heavy breathing... They certainly

flew longer than one would expect before ejecting.

 

Airspeed can be observed on the HUD's upper left corner. It goes down

to the low 120's as they struggle to get the engine going again, but as the

plane noses over and dives to earth it increases to at least 175 just

before impact.

 

It just goes to show how quickly your day can go to pieces - 45

seconds from strike to ejection. All and all, not bad.

 

They ran the emergency checklist, made two relight attempts, and

picked out a plowed field for impact before ejecting.

 

You can follow the audio attached to it and hear the conversation

between the pilot and instructor pilot and then the tower including the

pilot saying they were punching out. The tower didn't seem to completely

understand it all, and missed the significance of the last transmission.

His last radio call, he's talking to an empty aircraft.

 

The video contin ues until impact, even after they both eject. A

classic "buying the farm" as you can see the plow rows get bigger.

 

A real nice job from the aircrew by keeping their cool and turning the

aircraft away from populated areas. No one hurt and no one killed but the

dirty bird did cost the Taxpayers" few" million dollars!

 

This is what aircrews train for day in and day out."

Hope you find it interesting.

DCS Wishlist: 1) FIX THE DAMN RIVERS!!! 2) Spherical or cylindrical panorama view projection. 3) Enhanced input options (action upon button release, etc). 4) Aircraft flight parameter dump upon exit (stick posn, attitude, rates, accel, control volume, control-surface positions, SAS bias, etc). 5) ADS-33 maneuver courses as static objects. 6) Exposed API or exports of trim position and stick force for custom controllers. 7) Select auto multiple audio devices

No, I'm prety sure it was an F-16. Thers are two seat versions, (I dont know the Block #s though.)

 

What makes you think it was a different plane?

Ok. sorry. I was given the wrong information. But i suppose your right, tha HUD does not look like the F-16s. (at least not the one from Falcon 4)

rgr, Nato Joint Jet Pilot Training Canada at Moose Jaw , BAE MK 127 Hawk 2 Seater Aircraft. Where does everyone get the bs claims of it being an F-16.

no path and leave a trail."

Flip, look no further than the name given to the file on that hosting site, my friend. ;) It reminds me of the multitudes of "F-xx Supersonic Pass" videos out there, when NONE of the aircraft in those videos were supersonic during their passes.

Ok, sorry 'bout that. I was goven the wrong information.

 

I agree with you. If you go to google video though, it says F-16 all over the place. thaers why every one thinks it's an F-16.

 

Again, Sorry! jeez!
