F-16 Fighter Aircraft Crashes Upon Landing at Base

Post by gvla on Wed Jan 02, 2013 12:47 pm

An F-16 "Barak" fighter aircraft crashed just a short while ago while landing at the Ramat David Air Force base in northern Israel.

The two-person air crew abandoned the aircraft on the runway as they were landing. Both sustained no injuries but were taken for medical examinations.

Initial reports show that the crew decided to abandon the aircraft due to a technical problem. Air Force chief Major-General Amir Eshel said a commission would be established tasked with figuring out what went wrong and suspended training on the "Barak" aircraft.

Landing gear problem forces Israeli Air Force to suspend all training flights with the F-16D January 20, 2013
Posted by Richard Clements in : Aviation Safety, Military Aviation , trackback


The two pilots successfully ejected and were not seriously hurt but the aircraft was so heavily damaged that it is unlikely it will return to the air in the near future.

This is the second time the Israelis experience this kind of issue with the the same issue another incident took place in 2005 with the aircraft involved returning to flight during 2012.

According to an article in the World Tribune Air Force commander Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel has ordered the suspension of all training flights by the F-16D in the wake of the latest incident. The Air Force has started an investigation into the failure along with Lockheed Martin.

Bullshit rabbit rabbit

What is really funny is the Greek journalists -my ass- that reproduce Aviationist without giving him credit, instead their refer to "sources" and media reports Very Happy Barak F-16's fly

The Barak planes resumed activity on Thursday
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4334024,00.html

Air Force Commander Amir Eshel instructed, Thursday, that the force's F16 Barak jets return gradually to training flights, ...The order to resume training flights came after Eshel was presented ...
