    F-15 Down in the North Sea


    https://americanmilitarynews.com/202...dZIRiJeXheeNPE

    A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle fighter jet crashed at approximately 9:40 am local time today in the North Sea.


    The cause of the crash as well as the status of the pilot are unknown at this time. The pilot remains missing and U.K. Search and Rescue have been called to support.

    The jet was from the 48th Fighter Wing, stationed at RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom.

    Col. Will Marshall, 48th Fighter Wing commander, released a video statement saying, “Search and Rescue effort are currently underway, but the pilot of the aircraft is still missing. We will provide updates as they become available, while prioritizing respect and consideration for the pilot’s family.”
    I hope they find the pilot.

        Is their G-suit rated like an immersion suit? Or is it more or less hope you get in your raft and don't die of exposure right away?


        RIP Col. Marshall.

                no, not at all. G-suit is just basically leggings. And the flight suit is just thin ass nomex.

                        Was there in the USN, they said hypothermia would be within 5 minutes and dead within 45 minutes or when removed from the water, whichever came first.

                          I believe Col. Marshall is the commander of the squadron (the bald guy in the vid); and not the pilot lost.


                          The pilot's I.D. has not been released yet.

                            They told us in the Japan sea if you fall off you'll be dead before we can get a helo in the air. So don't fall off.
