visibility 5 km
I was nervous and flushed
“F-10 from the last century. 1980s started to develop, until March 23, 1998 was successfully completed its first flight, during which they experienced 10 years of flight test. “Lei Qiang recalled, first flight is not ideal weather, visibility barely reached 5 km, as tense and full face red, he looks like a drunk, the pulse is to jump 152 times.
strong when Ray took a deep breath after you start the engine into the cabin, I found myself completely calm. 17 minutes, “Hawk” safe landing, a successful maiden flight of mine said something stronger: “This is China’s real fighter.”
mention the difference between test pilot and pilot, Ray Strong, said: “When I was a pilot in the army, when once the special circumstances encountered in the air, I just need to be handled in accordance with the provisions of the manual, but the manual is provided on the blood test pilot lessons in return. As a test pilot, in the face is usually a new fighter, my job is to explore the aircraft’s performance, and help designers improve the aircraft. “
he revealed that, after repeated in the whole range of air filters , 24 people into the test pilot of the assessment. Ultimately, only five were identified as F-10, “chief test pilot group” members.
blade on the dance
flight to create casualties miracle
in the eyes of many people, the test members are from the sky recently who also died recently from people, because every flight is “on the blade dance”, their fate is walking a tightrope.
Currently, the only active the world’s fourth-generation fighters (according to plan on behalf of the Russian fifth generation) F22, there are two in the flight test phase of test pilots were killed. In the third-generation fighter development, the United States, Russia, France and other countries have had repeated crash aircraft accident, and three generations of Chinese-made F-10 flight test machine to achieve a “zero casualties”, created a miracle in the history of flight .
test pilot with the older generation is different is that mine strong start from the beginning involved in aircraft design, full participation, a total of 1000 F-10 made many details of the improvements. In a sense, he is also the aircraft’s “designer.” “The F-10 flight, I just got on a plane always have a good understanding of things, but for the first time the face of the F-10, I was completely dumbfounded, not more than 60% of basic knowledge.” Lei Qiang said, but through a second test He not only familiar with the F-10, and “help” step by step toward improved F-10.
shocked when doing roll:
F-10 is so quick
to good control F-10 aircraft, flying mine strong theoretical study, but also maintain the record flight experience. No matter how busy, he insisted to learn English, now with foreign exchange test pilot when there is no language barrier. Face known as the “death forbidden,” the spin of the delta wing aircraft stall risk serious test subjects, but also he took a strong challenge mine. Training in Russia, he also praised the “outstanding world-class test pilot.” Lei Qiang, from the first time in 1998 driving his F-10, to the Air Force F-10 quantities of equipment, driving his F-10 flew a total of more than 1,000 sorties, and the entire F-10 test pilot team, only about 10 individuals to achieve this level.
F-10′s combat performance, Lei Qiang said he made the first flight when startled roll, the aircraft could be so sensitive, agile, it is second-generation machine can not do. In addition, the F-10 can be at 80 km range missile, a combat radius of more than 1,600 kilometers, if the air refueling, also doubled, to ensure the security and defense as far as the Spratly Islands. Lei Qiang said, after the F-10 equipment, our fighters can effectively seize control of the air, while achieving precision strike on the ground.
