  • Swedish C-130 flight crew under investigation for stunt!

    Swedish military pilots is under investigation after flying as low as 5 meters from the ground with a Hercules TP 84, the pilot a 50 year old experienced military pilot did the stunt after a military exercise at the military parachuters school outside Karlsborg in Sweden.

    The pilot said it was just a prank/joke and gave no other explenation, the head of the Swedish Air Force is considering if there will be issued any punishment towards the crew of the Hercules TP 84.



    Where does the line go ? I'm sure the experienced pilot knew what he was doing, but I guess the Swedish AF didn't liked this kind of "jokes."

      I think the Bud Holland B-52 crash of 94 made superiors more sensitive to "rouge" pilots, personally I think thats a good thing.

          Yeah, it's a little too bad about the missing sound.

            50 meters over land, 30 meters during certain pre-briefed drills (e.g., load dropping operations), 20 meters over water.

              A lot less telegraph poles or power lines to be expected... Still, manually (and worse: by night) one of the more strainous jobs, see my avatar.

                Agreed. Though there didn't seem to be any wrecklece manuvers preformed durring the flyby, other than the flyby itself.
