A “mishap”.

….pushed the wrong button? There are lots of them in such a cockpit…anything that can happen comes to pass once in a while..


“Anything that can go wrong will” Murphy’s Law


A UK Navy Scimitar fighter had a landing gear problem at Lossiemouth. As it was soon to be scrapped, the pilot was told to eject. He pointed it out to sea, trimmed nose down, and ejected. With the new C of G it flew across the bay, low over the town of Buckie, very low over the A98 road, and landed in small trees and bushes. (Landed, NOT crashed.)

worry no more, it’s been found-:

ain't the Destination, but the Journey

Whenever there is a crash, the wreckage always comes up on Ebay. There were some great ones with BA038.

Link16 is interesting. Why not operational all the time?

What does “two hours North of Charleston base” mean?

Indeed. Two hours walk is a lot different to two hours drive which is a lot different to two hours in search aircraft with is a lot different to two hours in an f35!
