I remember seeing one of these planes flying during a 4th of July celebration in Boston and wondering how it managed to stay in the air and after watching this crash it makes sense that they started phasing them out.
100% death...I mean SUCCESS rate!!!
not your typical model airplane crash
goodbye 2.2 billion dollars. goodbye beautiful airplane. = (
we're not doing a very good job at taking technology from the aliens
OUR TAXES HARD AT WORK
the pilot was getting head.
It's probably the same dude that crashed the helicopter. Good thing for the three strike rule
you can't see'um on radar cuz their not up there!
Dammit! You don't pull up until sector 7 jackass!
nice bombers piece of shit though.
That actually had nothing to do with the plane...if you notice the pilot pulled up too sharp too soon...in other words, hes a dumbass.
probably a computer malfunction as that plane is fly by wire. seen the 2 man crew eject.
Holy departure stall, Batfuck. That's an expensive ball of fire. I wonder how many plastic pussy substitutes you could by with the insurance money.
And to think some genius puts NUCLEAR weapons on board.. nice camera work too.. THE PLANE CRASH IS ON THE LEFT YA FUCKWIT
Made in China.
there is nothing awsomer to add to this.the awsomesness if its awsomnisity is awsome enough.
the batplane had the screamers.
shit...One of those things costs more than my countries gross national product over about ten years!
Greg, what are you smoking? It's the B-1 that is being phased out, not the B-2. TOTALLY different planes.
The B-2 can NOT actually be stalled-out. It's computer navigation makes it impossible. That being said, these guys did fuck up a take off so much it was more than they and the machine could handle.
John Travolta films the opening scenes for Broken Arrow II...
our hard eraned dollars up in smoke
that is something like a Billion dollars up in smoke. Thems spendy
drunk people are awesome.
When i said dont drink and drive smoke and fly i didnt mean literally BITCH!
hire a new camera man while your at it
Should have joined the Navy.
STUPID ASS PULLED UP TO HARD!!!
no ejection in the Champagne Room!
$1.4 billion actually. These stats are pretty easy to look up guys. Beats guessing and being wrong. If you watched the news youd have heard that one many times. This was caused by moisture blocking sensors causing computer error. Its actually an interesting fact that they couldnt get this plane to fly using traditional technology. It must be controled by computers to be stable. I.E. no computer = crash.
That wasn't one of the pilot's better days.
they arent phasing these out. lol what would they phase in? all the rest are here at whiteman... they are still killing towlies!
Chance, you CAN get a flying wing to work without a computer, it's just a pain in the ass. The Northrop XB-35 had the same wieght, length, wingspan, and was still able to fly in the 50's.
HE JUST ROTATED AND TRIED TO CLIMB OUT TOO SOON, WITHOUT ENOUGH AIRSPEED. TOO STEEP A CLIMB, STALLED AND FELL. THAT'S ALL. (LACK OF) SPEED KILLS.
Hey....whats this red button for???
I know you can get a flying wing to fly Cuda. the Germans did it in the 1930's. I said they couldnt get "this" plane to fly without a computer. Ive seen several shows on this plane on the history channel and military channel. all other flying wing designs had a tail for stability, this one dosent because of radar signature, and is therefore less stable and needs the computer to make quick computations to compensate. I am not makeing this up.
And tripod needs to watch the news. the report came out this week that it was caused by computer failure due to moisture in sensors, as i said. Also, you cant stall this jet, it wont let you.
Check out militaryfactory for info on this issue. The third paragraph on the B-2 Spirit page addresses both the need for computers for flight, and its inability to stall because of these computers.
actually tripod according to the press release moisture got into a couple of the sensors, supposedly, and was sending false info to the main computer... nothing the pilot could do.
Damn bitch, it's going to take weeks to get that grass back in good condition now.
