F16 Crash

This pilot kept his head and didn't get anyone killed.

Patrick Dodson had just stepped out to his front porch Wednesday morning in Clinton, Md., when a noise made him glance up. Planes were nothing new in his neighborhood, with a private airfield a mile away and Joint Base Andrews just north. He’d often wondered what he’d do if he saw one go down.

“I’d never in my life thought that I would run toward a falling jet,” said Dodson, 38. “That’s something that heroes do. That’s not me; I’m just a single father of two kids.”

Dodson’s house on Maui Street gave him a chilling view of the unfolding crisis. The electrician looked up to see a fighter jet struggling to stay aloft, plumes of black smoke pouring from it.

Suddenly, a human shape shot up and away, sprawling in the sky; then another blob flashed up and spread into a parachute, jerking the human figure upward.

He watched the pilot hang, drifting, as the plane nose-dived, streaking toward the house where he, his mother, sister and 4-year-old nephew were having a quiet morning.

“Get . . . out of the house,” he screamed to them as he began to run. He dialed 911 on the phone that he had just used to text a friend. “A plane is crashing,” he said. As he yelled the address, he realized he didn’t know if the plane was “one of ours or another 9/11 attack.” The jet was almost down, roaring in with a whoop, whoop, whoop. He threw his phone down as the plane streaked past the roofs on Wood Elves Way..
really? Last i checked terrorists didn't have fighter planes with fucking ejection seats.

fuck people are dumb.

Or maybe those were his thoughts before the pilot ejected.

Or maybe he was he was just trying to wrap his head around the whole notion of a jet airplane falling the fuck out of the sky in his back yard.

well I suppose they could have stolen an F16, one of the most recognizable aircraft on the planet, after they trained themselves to fly it.

Do F16's need a key to start or you can just hop in one of them and be off GTA style?

It's the one labeled "Master Arm".



Also, we have made over 4k F16s over the years and sold a lot of them to over 20 different countries so it really would not surprise me if they ended up with one. It would surprise me to see it flying over US soil, but you never know.

Ya know I'm only trained in emergency shutdown procedures but it is probably just the reverse order to start it up

Now I'm gonna have to break out a NAVAIR and figure this mystery out.

Pretty sure it would be 100x easier to steal or hijack a small jet @ a little airport than get an F16 here or from elsewhere.

Hell, just go visit John Travolta.

Who needs a key? Short the red and blue wires together - just make sure it's in Neutral first.
