Hornet collided with the United States has two miracles: the success of landing aircraft wings
wings and landing aircraft. Chinese side is drawing
wing aircraft wings, aircraft flight is the most important component, but also the most vulnerable part. Once the aircraft “wings”, usually means that the plane crash. Sometimes, however, the coexistence of courage and wonder, of course, which includes a lucky ingredient.
broken wing “Eagle” cast Legend
1983 年 5 1 May, the Israeli air force carried out over the air in the Negev desert combat training. Suddenly, an adaptive training new pilots for the F-15 fighters, and an “Eagle” fighter air collision. “Eagle” fighter volley exploded, fortunately, the pilot ejected safely and successfully out of danger.
At this point, driving the F-15 fighters flying student Jon Aisi Li, and did not realize that a collision occurred, but felt a powerful impact. Aircraft out of control state in a short strange spiral along the track, not only flies the same as flying. Aisi Li electronic flight control device is reconnected to the wing control surfaces, this move was successful! Actually direct the aircraft returned to the state level.
codes of practice by fighter pilots and flight practice, the instructor sitting behind him decided to abandon machine escape. He has been doing all the preparations before the ejection, and gave the order. However, what happens on the outside know nothing about Aisi Li, re-control aircraft, two “reject” the instructor’s commands. He stubbornly believe that: just place the fuel tank spills.
Next, how to maintain a state of high-speed flight landed safely so Aisi Li is a big headache. Critical juncture, he thought the notice on the ground with: to lay down the hook and landing aircraft emergency recovery net to slow down. After a few seconds, his 481.5 km/h speed landing on the runway in the desert, which is almost twice the rate specified landing. Because too fast, landing hook snapped. Glide a considerable distance after a long period, F-15 fighters stopped down.
when Ai Sili open cockpit cover back and shook hands with the back seat of the instructors of the moment, he was surprised: the right wing was gone! Later, Aisi Li is due to disobey orders instructors were demoted, and then save the aircraft and was due to upgrade.
army when the McDonnell Douglas received the entire sequence of events sent the photo, said Aisi Li as “very good people can not stand the pilots.”
before or since has come,
Since the Israeli Air Force F-15 fighter off the wing to create the miracle of flight, the aircraft began to more and more The goal of launching a “challenge”, and has made incredible “record.”
According to incomplete statistics, there are at least three fighter wings in the off state of successful forced landing. June 29, 1991, two U.S. F-14A “Tomcat” fighter jets collided in the air. Number of Unit for the NH205 crew members lost in the case of right-wing aircraft, actually miraculously landed successfully.
1996 年 4 23, in North Carolina conducted a mock air combat over in order to avoid the missile “attack” the U.S. military two “Hornet” unfortunate in the air “kiss.” Among them, the pilots Stubbs driving “Hornet” fighter driving left-wing hit Anderson in the head, then all of the aircraft’s radar fairing cut. Worse, due to accidental triggering of the aircraft outside the emergency hatch projectile body, the rear hatch Anderson missing aircraft cockpit.
at the moment, Stubbs situation is very bad. Flight instrument panel warning lights flashing that his left-wing and tail rudder out of the question, the left was cut about 1.5 meters, the remaining jet fuel like a camel out of steam, the left vertical tail about 1/3 has been cut off.
can choose to abandon both machines to escape, but Stubbs and Anderson, regardless of personal safety, with extraordinary courage and superb technology, success will be severely damaged aircraft landing, creating aviation history miracle. (Li Jing Jin)
