Sid_6.7: A f*cking computer sim.? No footage?!

F*ck you.


I have this same feeling.

It's like when NASA releases giant matte paintings of exoplanets when you know that the best image they have looks like this . if indeed they have an image at all.

You damn well the US plane had a camera running. It was a recon plane. Release the video.
 
2014-06-04 07:09:07 AM
But had an American fighter done the same thing to a Russian recon plane as close to the US as our recon plane was to Russia, we'd be high-fiving and telling ourselves how we should have put that Russian brass-stud in the water.

CNN cares about planes that didn't go missing?

Other than the fact that it was a russian jet is this really a big deal? Don't Military planes fly very close together all the time?
 
2014-06-04 07:36:39 AM
I pilot as young as Maverick would never have a call sign as cool as "Maverick."

He would have a helmet with the word "Kitten" or "Mallard" or "Elmer" on it.

That is all.

No, actually, they don't.  Unless you're on some demonstration team, or doing air to air refueling, you try to keep some distance.  Close flying takes lots of coordination and practice.  100 feet at several hundred miles per hour is not any space at all really.  If one of the pilots had twitched on accident you could have had a mid-air collision.

I thought I read somewhere that they don't pick their names. If that's true, then yeah.

Meh, I liked the USA vs Soviets days. It was a simpler time - all we had to worry about was instantaneous annihilation.

Better than the slow choking to death on our own waste we are all worried about these days.

It's always good to find a comfy thirst that you've lost for a while. This is that T-Shirt. Better than the old musty coat of German aggression that Grandpa gave us on our 18th birthday.

Were they over US airspace? Or was it a spy plane flying close to Russia? Hmmmm

I don't know about children's parks, but last time I had great balls of fire, my doctor sure as shiat wasn't impressed.

lucksi: Were they over US airspace?


A Russian fighter over US airspace would be kind of a big deal.
 
2014-06-04 08:05:39 AM
Can you really blame them when you consider that the term "U.S. Air Force reconnaissance plane" rhymes with "spy plane" in their native Russian tongue?

H31N0US: lucksi: Were they over US airspace?

Yeah plus it said it was in open water between Japan and Russia so unless the US is between Japan and Russia then no it wasn't our airspace.
 
2014-06-04 08:12:46 AM
Hmm, a fighter pilot acting like a fighter pilot. Shocking. Bet our guys do the same thing.
 
2014-06-04 08:15:46 AM
Don't worry. Obama will send an apology letter to Russia for endangering the live of their fighter pilot.
 
2014-06-04 08:16:08 AM

doglover: You damn well the US plane had a camera running. It was a recon plane. Release the video.


The fact that the Obama Administration continues to refuse to release this footage has been called "troubling" by high ranking house officials.

Their half-full vodak bottle had fallen off the dashboard and they were too drunk to reach down to get it, so they turned plane upside down so the bottle would fall up. They didn't want the Americans to see the gay pron in their cockpit.

It's good to see all the patriotic Fark Independents are up early enough to cheer for their favorite despot/pinup. Here. I'll help you "get your blood flowing" (if you know what I mean and I think you do).

OMG, TWO PUTINS.

As for the article, that's nothing.

Chinese got within ZERO feet of one of our recon planes a few years back.

As China did with an US recon plane a few years back. The one that was forced to make an emergency landing in China.

Apparently Chinese pilots would always fly close underneath the US planes, which essentially created the effect of airturbulence, with the recon plane dropping several feet every time they did it.

Given the location, it might have been Best Korea they were spying on.

Russia has a narrow strip of land, that gives them a common border with Best Korea though.

2014-06-04 09:14:04 AM
Scary? Subby, the US and the Russians have played this game for at least 60 years. It's no big deal. But both countries are posturing because both want another very profitable cold war.

CNN, should have looped that simulation at least 10 more times. I couldn't quite get the gist of what happened with a mere 15 reps.
