You do realize the pilot died in the crash? Personally I for one don't find anything funny about that, especially having lost friends who were fighter pilots, at least one that was most likely a G-LOC (loss of consciousness) accident. I would think a little compassion for the late pilot and his family would not go amiss here.

Cheers,

Have to agree Scott - certainly seeing as the pilot died in the crash.

I do wonder looking at the pull out of the loop if it was g-loc or simply the plane stopping the pilot from pulling out hard enough to avoid the crash. I guess we'll never know but it's still a shock when you see it on camera like that.

I remember being at an air show in the late 80's where the Vampire and Meteor pair were doing a display and the Meteor went out wide and lost control authority. The pilot stayed with the plane to avoid the housing estate he was heading for and managed to bring it down into a field close to the houses. Something that will stay with you always when you witness it first hand.
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

Hi Sterling -

Speculation always runs rampant immediately after accidents of this kind unfortunately. I was involved in the investigation of a couple of CF-18 crashes (unfortunately both fatal) while in the RCAF. It can take literally months up to years to run all the forensic testing and finalize the reports and paperwork that needs to be done to determine the cause of the crash. If they are able to salvage the airplane from the sea, they will have a very good chance of finding out if there was anything mechanically wrong with it. The engineers and scientists I have worked with are unbelievable in what they can find in the wreckage.

The physiological aspects of what might have happened with the pilot can be more difficult, the impact unfortunately does some pretty catastrophic damage to the human body and if the pilot's body is sitting in sea water for a lengthy period of time, that can also impact what the forensic scientists can determine.

Aviation by nature is an inherently dangerous business and jet fighter aviation probably even more so. Hopefully they will be able to determine what happened and if there is something wrong mechanically or procedurally with how the airplane is or was flown, the loss of life will not be in vain. A sad day for this pilot and his family and friends, unfortunately, his parents and girlfriend were in attendance at the airshow. Terrible loss. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/25/fighter-pilot-attempting-loop-the-loop-dies-crashing-sea/

Totally unacceptable comment dude, I'd like to know what you were thinking when you posted that comment!

No cheer,

Wasn't meant in that way , typing a message in a forum can be taken in many ways but again this crash does look like Human error, And usually it is .
And if G loc was the case then he was sleeping on impact never felt a thing ..
On closing note was reading somewhere that like 4 out of 6 pilots when engaged in air to air combat usually don't have to worry about missile lock . Because they hit the ground well before that .. and died when watching Red October exercises with set ceiling many pilots and runs have been aborted because the pilot went below ceiling so more or less crashed in mock up
Also i Highly doubt there family is reading posts from this site

You are unbelievable, and not in a good way!

While I do feel sorry for the pilot I do NOT for the Eurofighter, not a single bit!

And I'm definitely not an expert at what the human body does at high-G maneuvers, but watching the whole final dive in other videos it certainly doesn't look like he was pulling out of one, looking at the radius of the pull-up he could most definitely have pulled up a little harder without passing out.

And if it really was the plane stopping him from pulling up harder at that kind of trajectory then that's one more reason for me to hate that piece of junk!

I get a kick out of this seriously and being frank not to many people really give a crap about the pilot in real life talking mass population we are born and we die see that is really the problem this day n age we see it in the military with the weak PTSD non sense its Ridiculous .
I apologize if i hurt someone's feelings or i am not sympathetic over some strangers life that died by his stupidity .
Because that is what its going to come out to right ?
When investigation is done God forbid there going to say The Euro has issues .

I may be harsh but that is what the real world is HARSH i been shot , stabbed and litterallly beat the crap out of people that today do not even remember there name do i feel sorrow not one friggen bit .
If it came down to it i be probably if trained one of the best black water personal why because if they sent me on a mission to get rid of someone i would still sleep like a baby ..
but today with all the weak ass people around in the military PTSD is a great escape out of reality either you can kill people in war or be a fucking cook .
I know if i was at war i could kill all all day it would be my job ..

Now i got to head out and shoot a couple cow and butcher em love being covered in blood

i agree appears there has been few Euro fighters hitting the ground seems to be a issue
