BREAKING: One killed in Chiang Mai plane crash: See video

Recommended Posts

I see those jets every day and a few years back there was always 3.

It reduced to 2 for at least a year but in the last month there has been 4 flying which is a first.

I suspected it was new intake of trainees, but as for training thry just take off, circle a few times and land.

They certainly arent tornadoes flying at 100ft through the lake district.

It’s a long time since what is now the Czech Republic was part of the Eastern Bloc, but don’t let that get in the way of a spot of Thai bashing.

True. I regret saying that. I felt for the dead pilot.

Funny as I was on my way to 90 day check in yesterday' looked up, saw 2 of them flying and had the feeling they are so old one probably will crash. Just had that feeling and it actually happened. No joke!

Been flying over Hang Dong in three's and four's for a week or more lately but used to seeing them down the years and the L39 has a pretty good safety record.   Something went wrong and knowing this country as we do i doubt we will ever learn the truth, which is always served up in very short measure owing to the dreaded 'Loss of Face' disorder.

 

RIP the Instructor and Condolencies to his Family.

American aircraft including air force trainers are equipted with a 0 feet ejection seat, meaning you can eject from the ground

 

and still have enough altitude for your chute to open.

What does “when the altitude is too low” mean?

 

i wonder if he ejected at all? The trainees are suppose to be making the mistakes not the instructors...

 

interested to hear their final conversation....a critical mistake was made somewhere in the final minutes

 

 

In answer to your post

#1 too low means the ejector seat is deployed but not enough altitude is available to open the parachute thus allowing a reduction of speed upon landing.

#2 it's easy to determine if an ejector seat has been deployed, who said a mistake was made?
#3 Maybe there was a critical aircraft failure, not necessarily a mistake by either trainee or instructor.

Have seen a couple of these mosquitos buzzing around for the last few days unfortunately every landing aircraft passes directly over my house at 2-300ft not a problem I'm well used to aircraft noise having lived for decades on the RAF Lyneham flight path but this is a little more concerning having come down only seconds away from me and the inner-city airport it was heading for and not the first time seam to remember one last year also it maybe time to move the military out of CM airport for the publics safety to somewhere more remote to do their future crashing 🤔RIP         

move the military out ??? 555 - commercial airport is on army/air force area...

Obviously there some aircraft problem or failure.....doesn’t mean you accept death...

 

the findings will show whether response time was timely or not...

 

and living in a 3rd world country, the true findings probably won’t be made public especially if human error was involved ...face saving esp with a military death
