Probe after British F-35 fighter crashes in Mediterranean

Pilot safely ejected.


Interesting, thankyou. Cheers.

Imagine if now that pilot has to pay back the plane… Makes me think of Hot Shots!

Ramada Thompson : You were discharged from the service 18 months ago for willful insubordination. You disobeyed a direct order and lost a $13 million fighter in the process.

Topper Harley : Yes, I did. But I’m paying it off at ten bucks a week. And I wouldn’t be doing that if I’d gotten that extra collision coverage.

:rofl: That’s why captains go down with the ship…


I somehow doubt it would have been the pilots fault though :slight_smile:


Sorry Kommie, bit slow on the uptake this time in morning, be interesting to hear what happened though if the MOD let us know?

No worries mate, I just wanted to point out I was joking- but it’s clear enough, ain’t it?

Yes, of course :slight_smile:

I wonder if it was a bird strike?
Or as we would say in the US, a woman strike?


This is a good read from a good blogger from yesterday that helps put the accident in perspective, lets keep calm and carry on :parachute:
