Too heavy. Too low. Too slow. Too steep of a bank angle. Inexperienced pilot flying at night. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything was O.K. until the plane hit the ground. It looks like one side of the plane quit flying.

Similar to this, except for the fact it was running fine right up until it hit the ground.

They're falling from the sky. Did you see this F16 that made an emergency landing at Lake Havasu and yard saled the jet off the end of the runway.

Interesting audio of first responders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC4U_DyWECQ

Horrific crash ... at least it was pretty much instantaneous.

What's wrong with you guys? Nothing lighthearted about a plane crash.

Probably costs more t0 find and train a qualified pilot than to buy a new plane. Quite a skill.

Even when considering the cost of their training, pay, and benefits, a fighter pilot is lot cheaper than the plane these days.

In World War Two, the pilot was much more expensive.

However, even though the economics have changed, the training has become much more lengthy and involved. It takes three years to get a fighter pilot to the point that they can safely fly and employ the airplane.

Over a decade to get to the point of being truly skilled with it.

That is part of why the USAF and USN are so short of pilots right now - they're leaving faster than they can be replaced.

Sadly, this will always be true.

Even the very best pilots make tiny mistakes that they continually correct...and they're able to maintain generous safety margins.

But an uncorrected mistake, particularly a big mistake, in aviation can quickly lead to disaster.
