中广网 Beijing News on December 14 (Sun Jie Shi Yong Zhou Jingbo correspondent only) day of April 2003, Song Yi, as usual drill into the cabin to start the engine of a helicopter pilot and ground resonance test run.
When the tests to the final step – helicopter engine test data to work under extreme conditions, Song Yi of the headphones suddenly came commanders rapid instructions: “Emergency Shutdown! Engine fire. Closed emergency car! “
original, due to extreme conditions, the engine temperature, oil temperature of the fluid approaching the burning, smoke billowing out tail pipe is smoke.
At this point, the rotor is still high-speed operation, which produces a tail wind contributed to the nozzle of the fire. Between the moment almost, smoke enveloped the entire cockpit, making breathing very difficult Song Yi, who has been unable to see out his profile. The fire soon spread to the body from the engine, fuel tank also have a lot more than oil, the helicopter explosion at any time. Thus, there is testing personnel on the ground shouting: “Song Yi. Fast jumping machine! Fast jumping machine!”
Song Yi in the side door handle, within reach, he just gently pull can escape from this dangerous environment, but Song Yi have been slow to come out. Because he was clearly driving the research prototype test pilot carrying tens of millions of valuable scientific data, research experts gather thousands of years of effort. Once damaged, then this new model of development will come to naught, all they have to start from scratch.
“must be the preservation of this aircraft research prototype!” At risk of Songyi mind there is only one faith. With the familiar environment of the cockpit, he was almost invisible under the conditions, according to fire treatment plan accurately operate the buttons. After a few seconds, emergency vehicles off the success of the engine fire extinguishing equipment quickly start an foamy liquid mixed with the combustion of impurities spewing out of the fire is almost critical point in the explosion was tamed. This time, Song Yi not only a research prototype of successful preservation, but also with practical and effective inspection of the fire extinguishing system reliability.
