The plane was basically acting like a rocket...

Is that the Israeli F-15 landing with one wing after a mid-air collision with an A-4?

The video's just some bogus collage of stock footage and bad special effects. That said, the story's true.

it took major balls to not eject straight away

jets pick up major speed when pointed down on full power , trying eject at high speeds is risky

i bet if he knew the full damadge in the air he wouldnt have tried landing

the actual damadge

he ripped off the wing right at the root - so it was a close & heavy impact

I bet if the pilot could actually see the damage they would have been outa there in a hurry. But if memory serves me right, didnt he say they couldnt see anything because of the fuel stream?

Correct, he didn't realise he had no wing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Very nice flying.

well this confuses me...
this f15 with only one wing flying seems like one of raaids inventions, anyway wuldnt all teh lift on one side have caused uncontrollable roll?
let alone on landing, and at such a high speed wouldnt the cracks have expanded and ripped the plane apart..?

correct me please

Actually after this incidend, the constructors at MD realised that public now knows about the biggest weapon of F15: big, red, dusty button, which when pressed, blows both wings away and turns an F-15 into a Mach10 stealth fighter, with, surprisingly, even greater maneouverability! That's why their efforts were then concentrated on fixing the wings to the fuselage with greater strength just to make sure, they'd never fall off again in an unappropriate moment and reveal to the world the utter and total dominance of the design of already utter and total dominant design.

Yes it would. this is a bed ferrytale for kids that have no clue about planes or aerodynamics. It surprises me, how massively people fall for this only because "others think so" or it was "found on the net".

the story is fact try reading some history you could learn something.

I heard the student pilot was demoted for ignoring his instructor's order to eject and then promoted for saving the aircraft. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

One things for sure, he was the biggest swinging Richard in the mess that night.

Fact? From the Israeli Military? Yeah right.

Pure BS Propaganda.

Even the designers at McDD said that this was not possible.

It has a big belly that works as a lifting body they said somewhere.

thought that lifting body idea came from the 1337 mig29 or su27?

both the Raptor & the Eurofighter have shaped nosecones to produce lift (as do the latest build Vipers no doubt) . dunno about the Sukhois & Migs but you would have to be crazy to think they didnt

been a understood phenomenon for decades . the raptor is especially smooth underneath the whole plane

If you have a peek at the side view of the mig29 you can see how the fuselage arches and that in a way ( supposedly) it would create lift,
Ive got a figure of 40% lift generation of something stuck in my head, probably is not righthttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
