– A strange emergency call was issued after a fighter jet crashed
An F-35B continued to fly without a pilot after the crash. Landing in the garden of a house, he contacted the emergency number. The people there reacted with great confusion.
The US military called civilians Had to ask for help searching for the F-35 fighter jet, was very unusual. The 911 call recording that has just been released about the incident in the US state of South Carolina is strange to say the least.
REVIEW: Last weekend, a pilot saved himself from an F-35B stealth jet by using an ejection seat due to a “stutter.” The fighter flew alone and disappeared. The wreckage was discovered a day later by the US Army. It flew about 100 kilometers and crashed in an uninhabited area. The incident created a stir.
An emergency call from a man who said the pilot landed has now become public. The local administration has confirmed the reliability of the emergency call.
“I think we have a pilot at home who says he used the ejector seat to eject himself from the plane,” the person on the call tells the woman at the emergency center. “I’m sorry, what happened?” she asks in disbelief. After some back and forth, the pilot finally intervenes: “A military jet has crashed. I am a pilot. I don’t know where the plane is. It must have come down somewhere and thrown me off.
The woman at the emergency call center finally asks how far the pilot fell. The pilot’s response: “About 600 meters.” Reaction: A short silence, then the question: “What caused the fall?” Answer: “Flight failure.” The pilot finally says: “I feel better. My back hurts.” When asked if a plane crash report had been filed, a confused woman at the emergency call center said no.
Finally, the pilot seems to lose his nerve slightly: “I was the pilot of a military plane and I used the ejection seat. I landed on the ground with a parachute. Can you please send an ambulance?” Answer It is already on the way.
The woman at the emergency call center finally advises the pilot: “From now on, don’t eat or drink anything that could make you sick or cause further complications. Do not move unless absolutely necessary.
According to the US Navy, the pilot is 47 years old and has decades of flying experience. Asked why the fighter jet, which cost at least $80 million, went missing after the incident, there is currently no explanation. The case is under investigation. The US Navy suspects that the F-35B may have disabled its communications functions after the pilot ejected.
The fighter jet is equipped with functions to ensure continued flight in case the pilot is unconscious. This explains why the F-35B flew 100 kilometers after the pilot escaped using the ejection seat.
The F-35B is a version of the US fighter jet that can land vertically and take off on shorter runways. This makes it ideal for use on aircraft carriers. Switzerland has ordered 36 F-35A aircraft, which are scheduled for delivery from 2027. This version has conventional take-off and landing capabilities.
