GUERRA DEL VIETNAM

Recommended Posts

969/ #2020

Lost on 10 May 1970 near Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base (RTAFB), Thailand.

After refueling the aircraft was in a climb back to altitude, when it

entered a huge thunderstorm with clouds well above 45,000 ft. Both engines

flamed out and unable to save the aircraft both USAF Pilot/ RSO: Maj.

William Lawson/ Maj. Glibert Martinez ejected safely.

 

978/ #2029

Lost on 20 July 1972 at Kadena AB, Okinawa. Attemping to land with a severe

crosswind, USAF PIlot: Capt. Dennis Bush had to abort the landing after

deploying the braking chute. He jettisoned the chute and went around and

attempted to land again, without the chute. The second attempt was too fast

and the SR went off the end of the runway, ripping off the main landing

gear and causing considerable damage to the underside of the aircraft. The

RSO: Capt. James Fagg and pilot survived safely. This aircraft was known as

"Rapid Rabbit". They tried to destroy the aircraft by burning it, but were

not successful, it was buried near the end of the runway in a small hill,

now known as Habu Mtn.

Non mi sembra corretto parlare di "caduti", non sono stati abbattuti dalla flak nordista, hanno avuto degli incidenti, peraltro non infrequenti in una macchina di quella complessità-

cè gia un topic dove si parla della guerra del vietnam!!

 

http://www.aereimilitari.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=9160

 

usate la funzione cerca prima di aprire topic(ve lo dice uno che di topic doppi ne ha aperti :rotfl: )

 

Non è un topic doppio, qui si parla delle perdite di blackbird, non della guerra in generale, poi, se leggessi le date, sapresti che questo topic è parecchio antecente all'altro, quindi al massimo saresti tu ad aver aperto un doppio topic :ban?::asd:
