Also at celebrations the dutch DEMO team plane piloted by Pilot calsign HITEC. The orange beauty is left on the tarmac due to failiure so the plane used on show was the reserve one.

To whom it may concern,

I am an idiot, unfortunately for the world, I have a internet connection and a fondness for beer....apologies for that.

Thank you for you patience.

Look like Boeing, has a new website with many photos. If you register, look like you can download Hi-Res version, I did not try it myself tho.

Oh No!, I never thought this would bother me until I read the Head Line

Boeing Receives 1st F-16 for Conversion into QF-16 Aerial Drone

http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=13&depth=4&cat=29&item=1131

It was bound to happen, at least they will go in flames, not rusting or weathering in AMARC :(

Wow Lots of birds

^^^ Is this the usual way in similar conditions, is an attempt to land too risky even with very low speed?

 

Seems a bit unusual to me. I've seen RAF pilots land a jet with either total or partial landing gear failure, including one Typhoon here at Coningsby that was landed without nose gear due to a mechanical failure.

 

In fact the procedures for landing/ejecting in the case of gear failure are set out in the flight manuals of every aircraft who's manual I've ever read through. There are of course situations where ejection would be recommended by the emergency procedures, but normally there would have to be additional complications/system failures for that to be the recommended course of action.

 

Of course not knowing all the circumstances we can only speculate, but personally I find it very odd that ejection was ordered rather than a gear up landing which, in my experience, would be the usual course of action.

 

Of course, I'm glad to hear the pilot suffered only minor injuries.

Man, good one L4key. I'm looking around for info on it but no luck. It look to me that harrier landed hard and fast. I wonder what happened. Lots of ammo on it as well, looks like two GBU-15 where on the thing

It was just carrying the 2 Paveway IVs and (empty) drop tanks, not that 1000lbs of HE isn't enough. As yet the board of inquiry report hasn't been published (still ongoing) so I don't have the facts, and wouldn't want to speculate for obvious reasons. No real info on the net, although there are forum threads discussing the crash on both pprune (pilots forum) and e-goat (RAF rumour forums) should you want to have a read.

That is not the reason, the Russians knew that it was to expensive to operate and never put it into service.

It wasn't a gear up situation. From what I understand from initial reports, one side was stuck in down position, while the other side and nose gear were stuck in the up position. The pilot (test pilot, instructor) made several attempts to lower them (hydraulic, mechanicaly) and made a landing attampt to see if the down gear would go in, or others would become free, but with no success.

 

One gear langing doesn't seem to be a safe option on this aircraft:

Never forget that World War III was not Cold for most of us.
