Bird vs multimillion dollar aircraft.

Both lose.

I hope the crew was ok. Other than that, one badass vid.

IMHO, it sounded like an instructor/student conversation. IIRC, the military is using small single engine jets for advanced training. It is the Goshawk or something... I will check.

I saw/caused such a bird strike once. I was driving to my unit at MCAS Cherry Point one AM. flushed a flock of seagulls towards the runway when I drove past. Seagull was ingested by an A-6 and flamed out. He rev'ed the remaining engine and executed a hard right turn. Pilot and BN landed safely.

I got to my unit and told my NCOIC what I had seen/done. We called Flight Op's and a car came to get me. I spent the rest of the day doing paperwork about the incedent.

I am glad it wasnt a Harrier as the A-6 flew right over my head. Single engine Jets scare me.

Did they take the cost of the engine out of your pay?

No I left the part about the backfiring when you let off the gas out of my statement. Cherry Point was FILTHY with seagulls.

If they ejected and the aircraft went down, where did the video come from? Is it linked to an armored flight recorder? I thought combat type aircraft did not have those. Just trainers perhaps?

WOW. That student was so scared he barely was breathing. I vote Goshawk. Poor guys. At least they probably made it.

I am pretty sure it's a CT-155 Hawk trainer. RCAF bird.

I'm not so sure. I thought he was doing a pretty good job going through the emergency procedures. It sounded like the IP was not taking over the plane. I think they both did a fantastic job. The IP was very cool, though. I gotta wonder if it was his first "unscheduled departure" as well.

ETA: I just watched it again. When the SP is trying the restart, the IP says, "I'll fly the plane."

What was wild was that you could see the bird coming, not enough time to react, but still...that's one of those "OH SHOOT!" moments.

Im not saying that they didnt follow red box procedures perfectly. I am saying that the students breathing was so shallow and uneven at the end of the video when he knew the yellow handle was going to get yanked. He was scared. He has every right to be.

Heh. Right before they punch out, the IP asks, "Are you ready to go?"

Without hesistation, the SP replies, "I'm ready!"

No shit. A single engine aircraft is already declaring an emergency even before it takes off

What is it you CFIs say? Take-offs are optional; landings are mandatory? Not in this case! These guys got to watch their plane "land" without them.

You heard it right. I think its the warning about the N1 blades not working or turning anymore.

That's what I thought, like maybe it was a T6 engine and N1 was way low or something. Do we know what aircraft it was? I presume that most modern military fighters are turbofans nowadays?

Being a GA pilot, I cringed seeing that hard bank, not only because of how steep it was but I thought he was making the "turn of death" to try to make the airfield. I was suprised to see that much residual energy in the aircraft. I guess there's a bit of difference between a Piper Cherokee and a fighter jet.........

True. The SP was pretty good at taking that 270 kts of airspeed, and turning it into altitude. Gotta remember that these planes doent glide nearly as well as our piper's. I think its a T45 Goshawk, or variant.

Ernie from EHOWA.com had this video on a few days ago and recieved a response from a Canadian pilot who knew about it. The response is July 31st if you visit EHOWA. (site NSFW)
Here is a link to the incident report. Linky

I didn't have the sound turned up enough to hear the conversation, I was just going by video image of the pitot probe.
