US Fighter Jet Landing Oopsie Injures Sailors Near China

These people can’t even land a jet but they’re going to fight simultaneous wars with Russia and China.


Seven US Navy personnel were injured after a pilot suffered a “landing mishap” on a US supercarrier and was forced to eject from the aircraft while performing operations in the South China Sea.

The US Navy announced on Monday that one of its F-35C Lightning II stealth planes had a “landing mishap on deck while USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) was conducting routine flight operations in the South China Sea.”

The pilot ejected from the aircraft and was rescued by a military helicopter, however a total of seven sailors were injured during the incident, with three requiring a medical evacuation to the Philippines. The three sailors are reportedly in stable condition.

The other four injured sailors were treated on-board the ship and three have since been released.

Exactly what went wrong is currently being investigated by US Navy authorities.

Yes, good idea.

Investigate your shit.

Social justice seems to work well in universities.

We’re going to see how well it works in the military.

I don’t think it will work very well.
