Fighter pilot blacks out at 18,000 feet, wakes up to $2.5M in damage

戰斗機飛行員在18000英尺高空昏倒,醒來時損失高達250萬美元

Nightmare at 18,000 feet.

18000英尺的噩夢。

A military flight exercise in Oregon turned disastrous after a student pilot blacked out during a maneuver. Fortunately, he was able to wake up from the flightmare and guide the plane to safety — but not before causing some serious damage to his aircraft.

俄勒岡州的一次軍事飛行演習變成了一場災難,因為一名學生飛行員在演習中昏了過去。幸運的是,他能夠從飛行噩夢中醒來,并將飛機引導到安全的地方——但在此之前,他的飛機受到了嚴重的損壞。

The harrowing near-miss occurred this past March over Oregon, where an unnamed apprentice aviator and his instructor were conducting a two-aircraft mission simulation in separate F-15C jets, reports Popular Science.

據《大眾科學》報道,今年3月,在俄勒岡州上空,一名不愿透露姓名的飛行員學徒和他的教練正在用不同的F-15C噴氣機進行兩架飛機的任務模擬。

The routine drill went sideways after the pilot attempted a tricky turn and passed out due to the accelerated gravitational forces. Specifically, the G-forces had caused blood to flow down from the student’s head, rapidly inducing unconsciousness.

由于重力的加速作用,飛行員在嘗試一個復雜的轉彎后昏了過去,之后常規的演習就偏離了方向。具體來說,重力導致血液從學生的頭部流下,迅速導致昏迷。

As a result, the plane was left hurtling through the air at approximately 18,000 feet with no one at the controls.

結果,飛機在大約18000英尺的高空疾馳,無人控制。

Fortunately, the cadet awoke from his impromptu in-flight nap 11 seconds later, and safely landed the fighter plane along with his instructor. Neither were injured in the incident.

幸運的是,11秒后,這名學員從他的即興飛行小睡中醒來,并和他的教練一起安全著陸。兩人都沒有在事故中受傷。

But the F-15 didn’t fare as well — the force of the maneuver caused damage to the wings, tail and fuselage, totaling more than $2.5 million dollars.

但F-15的表現并不好,機動的力量導致機翼、機尾和機身受損,損失總計超過250萬美元。

While the fainting flyboy survived the ordeal, the calamitous case does illustrate the perils of operating fighter jets even during training exercises, says Cheryl Lowry, a physician, aerospace medicine expert and retired Air Force colonel.

醫生、航空航天醫學專家、退役空軍上校謝麗爾•洛瑞(Cheryl Lowry)說,雖然昏倒的飛行員挺過了這場嚴酷的考驗,但這起不幸的事故確實說明了即使是在訓練期間操作戰斗機也有危險。

“Despite good training, and good aircraft, and good procedures, things still happen,” she tells Popular Science.

“盡管有良好的訓練、良好的飛機和良好的程序,事故還是會發生。”她告訴《大眾科學》雜志。
