life on the line, the pilot gave up skydiving
3 月 27 at 0900 hours, an airport Anhui spring, cloudless blue sky. Zhuang Wenbo Jiang Weijun into the cockpit and the pilot, wearing a flying helmet, fasten your seat belts … … roll off, into the boundless blue sky.
Zhuang Wenbo and Jiang Weijun there are two or three thousand hours of flying experience level of Air Force pilots. This time they perform a common transition mission.
9 30 pm, the aircraft to maintain level flight along the intended flight route, everything is so smooth.
9 时 31 points, the aircraft height of 800 meters, speed 220 km/hour, airport 30 km away from the target, the two pilots to fly the airplane is absorbed. Suddenly, the rear engine tachometer pilot Jiang Weijun found about 50 to switch the amount of swing, he concluded that the engine may fail.
Jiang Weijun quick to remind the front cabin of the Zhuang Wenbo. “Cockpit tachometer pointer also occur swing!” Zhuang Wenbo said.
“well, the engine is out of order!” The two pilots suddenly tightened nerves.
Zhuang Wenbo commanders report immediately to the tower, “table swing speed” and ready to do a good job handling special situations.
engine temperature gauge indicates normal, indicating normal oil pressure gauges and other instruments … … two pilots to quickly check the status of work related equipment and instrumentation.
9 时 32 points, Zhuang Wenbo again report to the commander: “aircraft jitter, the state is difficult to maintain.”
engine is fluctuated piercing sound, the amount of swing speed table increased to 300 rpm or so. Zhuang Wenbo and Jiang Weijun judge: stop the engine has been intermittent.
engine air parking, is troubled by modern aviation safety is a major problem, improper disposal, is likely to cause the plane crash of serious consequences.
At this point, formation of joint implementation pilot transition task when Zhongwei Jiang Ting and through the cockpit glass, and clearly see Zhuang Wenbo Jiang Weijun aircraft side to side, up and down the bumps, the state is difficult to maintain the aircraft altitude declining.
time flies. Jiang Weijun glued to the cockpit of various instrument parameters, to maintain the aircraft state, Zhuang Wenbo throttle switch is active, no improvement in symptoms; Subsequently, he switched to his right hand back and forth hand pump to help the engine oil supply, tried to return to work, but still no success .
9 when 35 minutes, the engine has been completely stop, the aircraft suddenly dropped altitude. Two pilots have been hanging by a thread. Tower commander issued a password: “you can jump.”
parachute, means that the state’s huge property – the aircraft will be completely destroyed, but also means that the placement of the aircraft uncontrollable, may hurt the people.
Zhuang Wenbo solemnly reported: “28 km away from the field, ready to field landing.”
three transfer head, difficult search for landing sites
continue to lower the height of the aircraft, Zhuang Wenbo and Jiang Weijun difficult to search for a suitable landing site.
looked from the air, right in front of the nose is a rugged mountainous area, Zhuang Wenbo quickly adjust the nose to the left front of the fly.
under the wings, the murmur of the Lang River is a quietly flowing through another village, unaware of this danger in the air. The front is a flat farmland, is an ideal landing field. But Zhuang Wenbo Jiang Weijun see the farmland and the farming of many people, and not far from there a few hundred families in the village, they immediately re-select the landing point.
this way, Zhuang Wenbo Jiang Weijun three times and turned the nose, but “must be forced landing” of the faith never wavered.
rapid reduction in the height of the aircraft, Zhuang Wenbo concentrate on looking for landing sites, Jiang Weijun is attentively observed the aircraft state.
fast in a very short period of time selecting the right landing site is on the pilots’ basic skills “test. 9:37, Zhuang Wenbo suddenly found a piece of wheat is not the right plane of the flat land mass, immediately heading to adjust the rudder pedal to go down this piece of wheat.
later, aviation experts view the scene and praised this crop is within 500 meters of the only safe landing sites can be implemented, the election is too precise a!
emergency avoidance, risking his own life save lives people
10 meters, 8 meters, 5 meters … gradually reduce the height of the aircraft, Zhuang Wenbo and Jiang Weijun concentrate controlled the aircraft aligned with the landing of the selected wheat, prepared landing ground.
However, the moment the plane soon landed, Zhuang Wenbo suddenly found head direction, a gray-haired villagers from several grave package suddenly stood up. This is a work being down, looked up and heard the sound of aircraft villagers.
“someone!” Zhuang Wenbo suddenly roared, and emergency pull the joystick left press, forced to change the landing point. This action is extremely dangerous and can easily lead to jump or roll the aircraft landed, a great threat to the pilots.
aircraft is almost close to the village passing the scalp, in the huge inertia of the plane has been pulled twenty-three meters, 200 meters pediment, deviate from the optimal landing position, the left wing with a wire rod with scraping and to hit on the head two poplar.
successful airplane landing field, two pilots safe.
“soldier’s instinct is to protect the people.” Later, Zhuang Wenbo about The Catcher in the village to avoid the emergency with a total disregard for personal safety bar, his answer the quiet calm. Zhuang Wenbo said: “If the villagers in the aircraft landing casualties, I would guilt life, his life no peace.”
Jiang Weijun said: “If an emergency because of cockpit with the pilot rod to avoid the masses, so that we accident, I feel regret and honor, if I was driving in front of the cabin, will do! “
pilots risking his own life to protect the people’s feat impressed with the folks.
