ENLACE CORTO > http://wp.me/p2jyBb-aF
Gaston: Creo que hablas del Capitan de Fragata Philippi, Comandante de la 1º Escuadrilla Aeronaval de Ataque.
Fué derribado por un missil superficie -aire, luego de un ataque en solitario, a buques ingleses en el Canal de San Carlos.
Volaba un A 4 Q.Cayó al mar, y nadó hasta la costa, e hizo supervivencia por unos días, hasta que fué hospedado por un poblador rural, quien cuidó de él, hasta su recuperación. Hoy son grandes amigos, y se visitan reciprocamente, tanto en Inglaterra como en Argentina
HOLA HORACIO, Mauricio (PP primo de Laprida) y (Cacho mi amigo PP de Gral Roca)
Ese piloto (cuando nos relato eso) era el Jefe de la base Naval de Punta Alta… y estabamos en un festival aereo en el Aeroclub de Rio Colorado SIN PODER VOLAR POR LLUVIA…. mateando al pedo en el hangar…
Incredible photos from last Friday’s accident in Canada ( Lethbridge ). Check out the sequence of the canopy leaving the scene, the pilot in his rocket-powered seat coming out, the parachute opening sequence, and the separated seat falling away. Modern technology at its best. All of this happened in about two seconds from canopy off to the fireball.
Check out all the smoke from the canopy rocket motors.
There he goes ! So that’s what the striped handle does !
The white thing is the seat-stabilizing drogue chute. Notice the pilot’s head pinned to his chest from the severe ‘G’ forces produced by the solid rocket motors in the ACES II seat. They burn for about 2/10ths of a second . .
enough time to propel him at least 60 feet clear of the aircraft. Hellova ride.
One millisecond from eternity for a beautiful FA-18.
Check out the now-unoccupied ejection seat following the aircraft to glory.
The pilot will be downing his first of several shots within the hour, soon as his hands stop shaking.
And the pilot lived happily ever after . . .
Shame – the Candian special F/A-18s (CAF-18) has several features to make it a grand beast – frubes
CF-18 fighter jet crashes while conducting an air-show practice flight
Posted Jul 23, 2010
The pilot, Capt. Brian Bews was able to safely eject before the CF-18 Hornet exploded on impact. He was set to perform at the Alberta International Air Show this weekend, when the crash occurred at Lethbridge County Airport. Capt. Holly Brown, a spokeswoman for 1 Canadian Air Division, said Bews is a demonstration pilot for that specific aircraft, noting his vast experience. “Capt. Bews, like any of our F-18 pilots, is highly trained, highly skilled and highly capable,” Brown said. “It’s a long journey to become an F-18 pilot, and our demo pilots are exceptionally proven.”. He was going through his practice sessions and something happened. He had to eject and the aircraft impacted the airfield.” Bews was brought to a hospital and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
