Chief engineer, said F-10 test flight lasted six years, not been dropped a test (Figure)
data for : F-10 aircraft.
early as 1978, America’s third-generation fighters – F16 has developed a dozen improved model, but the Chinese fighter was still the second-generation level, has become a huge gap between the history of . The third generation of aircraft technology in China’s aviation design, or a blank. For the design team, in order to achieve high performance fighter aircraft, they need to do is not just to fill the gap, but also try the most advanced design.
Song Cong (J-10 aircraft designer): copy or follow the old people Jianqi layout, that does not work. This aircraft also has a lot to do risk, things like that, if there is no difficulty in front of you, no risk, there is no driving force.
J-10 test flight for six years without a defeat
1998 年 3 23, F-10 fighter flight. Captain Thunder strong test flight as a mission. Third-generation fighter’s signature feature is the fax control. Because the aerodynamic layout and other features, days after the plane is an unstable state, the traditional ways can no longer linked joystick control its flight, need sophisticated new electronic flight control system to manage. Fax flight control system if there are problems, the aircraft will be out of control, the consequences can not imagine.
Lei Qiang (J-10 aircraft flight test pilot): So I am most worried about is we telex system problems, it is the aircraft uncontrollable.
Yang (J-10 when he was head of the aircraft flight control system): the task was arranged for me in the side of the aircraft flight control system to conduct a comprehensive inspection. Because it is the first flight, we checked the three; to ensure all meet the conditions. I was put up two thumbs head, told Lei Qiang, said the plane was ready.
Lei Qiang (J-10 aircraft flight test pilot): When I slid off the plane when he has been giving me the gestures, two thumbs way. I think that gave me great confidence.
aircraft glide – move up – the sky. This is just a few seconds, as if the air is condensed in general. Aircraft whistling each person’s heart to his throat hanging, people hold their breath, his face showed no emotion, just quietly look. When the airplane landed safely mine strong after all the emotions no longer control.
the silent tears of the people called Yang Baoshu, he was appointed commander of the J-10 aircraft production was already 58 years old. And this scene, he left to accompany the J-10 the last set of lenses. From the design, processing to final assembly, he accompanied the plane through 17 years, but last-minute test flight in shape, he become tired. September 9, 1999, the J-10 never left the development of the hero. In disease progression, in a deep coma, he was still muttering: “fly … … pulled! Then pulled ….”
successful maiden flight, but this is just a new aircraft development work began. Then every test, every job, are treading on thin ice, are facing the same hardships and challenges of flight.
as a fighter type, the test cycle to about one-third of the total aircraft development above. Aircraft flight test, known as the “tip of dance.” From the U.S. F-16, Russia’s Su-27, to France’s Mirage 2000, these advanced fighters in the test phase occurred in the tragic plane crash. China has independently developed the J-10 as the third generation of fighters, can withstand the test of the blue sky, no one has one hundred percent certainty.
weeks since the full (J-10 aircraft flight test chief engineer): it was predicted, Jian Shi flight bound to crashes. And those of us test pilots, test pilots are very good, they themselves say, he said that now is to see which one brother turn up.
the outsider, the aircraft flight test is a high-risk occupations. However, for test pilots, this is what they have to forget about, because only through the flight, in order to obtain valuable data for the development of the airplane shape to provide a scientific basis.
Zhang Jingting (an Air Force test team leader): only test which part of the risk, it is more important work lies plane from immature to mature, there is never fighting to combat such a process.
test pilot in the back, with a strong support team, this team seems unusual, but it always affects the flight of the success or failure, and even the lives of test pilots.
weeks since the full (total J-10 flight test aircraft division): once the process of preparing our flight, aircraft drove the aircraft to detect the status before God. Summer, ah, more than 40 degrees in the airport, then check passes, the last one crew found that a drop of oil flow out from the crevices. Hydraulic pipe that was broken at this time, if he is not concentrating so highly, he will not find, if he did not experience, he could find, if this thing is brought to heaven, that is not difficult to imagine the consequences.
-10 F in the last six years of intensive flight test process, not been dropped a plane, even the type of the aircraft substantially damaged accident never happened, the history of this flight test aircraft in the world are so surprising results.
2006, the J-10 aircraft, officially opened to the outside world mystery, the world’s third-generation fighter group in a shining star.
3 months to complete the “Flying Leopard” fighter-bombers, three-dimensional design
complete China’s first independently developed a new type of aircraft fighter-bombers, some people call ” Flying Leopard. ” New fighter-bomber project from the beginning to the successful maiden flight, to the troops, took only five years. This was once the industry was considered to be “impossible task.”
Tang long red (the chief architect of the new fighter-bomber): Almost every part of the aircraft had to be re-drawing, re-design. That this is the case, time and requires very tight, if no new technology, the traditional approach is no way to accomplish this task on schedule.
new fighter-bomber of the development and production coincides with the rapid development of global information technology era. Three-dimensional computer design and digital assembly of a new era means a major revolution in aircraft design. After three months day and night of the technical, implementation of new fighter-bomber aircraft in the three-dimensional computer design. This initiative marks the country’s aircraft design means to achieve a qualitative leap.
turn of the century several high-tech local wars, the world’s new military to speed up the pace of change. Information weapons capability has become a key factor in military operations by land, sea, air, space, electric five-dimensional integration of joint operations, is becoming a basic form of future warfare.
2006 年 9 26, the CPC Central Committee General Secretary and State President and CMC Chairman Hu Jintao met with military equipment in the work of the delegates stressed the need to adhere to operational requirements and technology to promote the combination of traction, scientifically determine the weapons development and construction priorities, focused on building meet the information requirements of local wars under conditions with characteristics of our weapons system.
this aircraft in aviation museums in the collections of the “Air Police One”, is the prototype of the early warning aircraft. Back in the 1950s, China put forward the idea of ??developing early warning aircraft in 1967 developed a new fighter-bomber. But by the time the technical limitations, early warning aircraft to the suspension of development work late.
in modern warfare, airborne early warning command and control aircraft as a long-range early warning and command and control air operations coordination center, known as “air command post.” It can be detected with great power and information processing capabilities in the future to make Miaoyan at the end of the invading enemy, more direct and coordinate air operations and precision strike, known as “air force multiplier.” Early warning aircraft from the date of birth, play an active role in modern warfare, repeatedly perform outstanding service.
the 1990s, more and more of our neighboring countries and regions have early warning aircraft. China wants to master the art equipment can only rely on ourselves in the face of heavy technology blockade, Comrade Jiang Zemin’s instruction, research departments to fight breath, or always be people Kabo Zi!
point, from the dusty, “Air Police One,” the date of birth is over thirty years. Advanced early-warning level has been far beyond the “Air Police One” era. In just a few years to develop an advanced early warning aircraft, we must redouble our efforts to catch up.
troops on the ground one hundred research units of the army of thousands of scientific research carried out difficult research. Research team to solve the aerodynamic layout, the center of gravity and so difficult problem radar, aircraft modifications using digital means, two years to complete design and manufacturing, its first flight in three years, China has created the miracle of electronics and aviation industries.
At the same time, completely independently developed in China, all of the localization of small early warning aircraft, has successfully come out.
China has independently developed early-warning aircraft was officially installed to achieve the airborne early warning system to detect and Air Combat Command’s major weapons and equipment of information technology breakthrough for the country and the nation added to keep the enemy out of the earth weapon.(edit: SN015)
