salve ragazzi .....


Salve !


Approfitto di questa discussione rimasta 'vuota' per segnalare una 'tragica' notizia ..... stanno cadendo a pezzi ..... :pianto:


The US Navy and Marine Corps are being forced to patch up their ageing fleet of Hornet fighter jets after reports they are falling apart mid-air.

Last weekend at Rockford Airfest in Illinois, one of the Blue Angels display team came close to catastrophe when it lost the maneuvering slat on its left wing.
The F/A 18 Hornets had been performing aerobatics when the flight control section appeared to have simply broken away from one of the lead aircraft - Blue Angel 5.

Buongiorno, ho visto di recente la puntata della serie "Mighty Planes" dedicata ai Blue Angels, dicevano che gli aerei che usano sono i più vecchi Hornet della flotta, e dato che di F/A 18 C/D non se se fabbricano più è sempre una sfida tenerli in efficienza. Purtroppo è fisiologico che prima o poi la vetustà diventi eccessiva... :hmm:

Ed ora ..... Super Hornet !


The US Navy has started a process to replace the Blue Angels demonstration team’s aircraft with a squadron of Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornets.

Boeing will receive a contract to draw up the engineering plans needed to convert the single-seat Super Hornet into a configuration specific to the Blue Angels role, the navy said in a 3 December acquisition notice.

Ormai la sostituzione dei vecchi velivoli era diventata inderogabile ..... "The Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornets Are Literally Falling Apart In Mid-Air" ..... http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/blue-angel-f-a-18-hornets-shed-parts-in-flight-twice-in-1709836712

La pattuglia acrobatica della U.S. Navy ha ricevuto il suo primo Super Hornet ...


Boeing has delivered the first Super Hornet test aircraft for the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angel flight demonstration squadron. 
The unpainted aircraft now enters the flight test and evaluation phase at Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland. 
Boeing expects to deliver a total of 11 aircraft for the squadron in 2020.
“The Super Hornet is an iconic representation of excellence in naval aviation,” said ret. Admiral Pat Walsh, vice president of U.S. Navy & Marine Corps Services for Boeing. 
Walsh flew with the Blue Angels from 1985 to 1987 as the Left Wingman (#3) and Slot Pilot (#4). 
“As Boeing continues to support the operational fleet of Navy Super Hornets, we are excited to see this platform enter a critical phase of its journey to joining the team.”
