Word is that a WTI Instructor in the F35. If so, bad trend- It was a WTI flying a non standard maneuver kicked off events for the mid air between the Hornet and the Herk in Japan that got the Herk crew killed.
Do you know the squadron of the F-35?

Yeah makes you wonder, not particularly easy to get from the basket to the props in broad daylight. Maybe the join went horribly wrong.

LiveATC has RAIDER's MOA clearance, and then all the drama but I couldn't find a continuous playback of what happened in between or how much time elapsed.

Another forum is saying the F35 was on the basket in a turn... when herc rolled out the F35 delayed and possibly over corrected causing it to strike two engines (3/4) on the herc. The crew of the herc are heroes for bringing this back to Mother Earth in one piece.

That just seems very unlikely, BUT - ALWAYS and NEVER are certainly two words you should use when talking about aviation!

It is bad enough that something went wrong to cause this mishap, but if something happened once in the basket (when you are generally stabilized in the basket, well....that is even worse IMO.
What forum was the information on?

Oh yeah. Especially since the sweet spot on the basket for fuel flow isnít that big. No reason to drive it forward.

I was always surprised that more Hornets didnít swap paint with the ARS, since the jets are WAY closer to each other during that evolution, and often comm out. Get a couple feet too high and the exhaust from the tanker blasts your vertical stabsónot a fun feeling at all.

All options beat the Maiden, though...
