F18 Mid-Air Collision

Head on pass gone wrong



Two F/A-18 Hornets from Top Gun were dog fighting and made a head-on
pass, just a bit too close. One got home with part of the left wing and
left vertical fin and rudder missing, while the other jet is missing
everything forward of the cockpit pressure bulkhead and is a
flying convertible because the canopy is shattered too.

F18 Mid-Air Collision

Two heavily damaged aircraft where the pilots would have been justified
in "punching out" of, but instead they chose to bring the jets in.

This endangered their lives but saved the taxpayers about 80 million
dollars. What is especially intriguing is that in the 3rd picture, notice
the radome, radar and all of the avionics equipment –
everything is gone!


This created several problems for the pilot: aerodynamics, eventual loss of
hydraulics due to loss of fluid, navigation, and probably the most
amazing, as the pieces fell away, some debris had to be ingested by
the engines - and he still was able to bring it home.
