F-16 Accident

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that most people have seen the movie Top Gun. It came out in 1986 and back then was the hottest thing in theaters. Tom Cruise played the fearless and unpredictable hotshot pilot Maverick, and Anthony Edwards starred opposite him as Goose, his navigator and Navy spotter. In 1986 the baddest bird in the sky was the Grumman built F-14 Tomcat, a plane that even by today’s standards looks like a work of art. Then there was the General Dynamics F-16, a wicked mean plane, although not as good looking in my book. Last but not least we have the Rockwell B-1 Lancer Strategic Bomber, a massive aircraft that has the same swept-wing design as the aforementioned F-14, but with enough bomb payload capacity and range to flatten just about anything, anywhere, at anytime. So, why are these planes important? Well the F-14 Tomcat and Top Gun were mentioned to get you into that warplane spirit (plus it was a good movie). The F-16 was brought up because it’s the plane that get’s a little messed up in this video. As for the B-1 Lancer – well, let’s just say that when they power-up to take flight you don’t want to have anything to do with them. Just ask the guy in the F-16… Click through to watch the video.

    Something doesn’t seem right about that vid. On the second pan the B-1 is gone but the people are just standing there like nothing interesting is going on.
