BRITISH FIGHTER DIDN’T MANAGE LANDING
Pilot of aircraft type Eurofighter Typhoon originally flew to a CIAF air show to Hradec Kralove. Due to poor weather, however, he had to change destination and land in Pardubice. But the fighter didn’t manage the landing maneuver. The aircraft drove off the wet runway to the grass. The pilot also used braking parachute for faster stopping. But it didn’t help.
“Sometimes something won’t work out, it’s just technology. I think the pilot responded as he should have, there were no mistakes.” said Jaromir Sebesta, Czech Army Air Force.
The British will investigate the incident. There are no runway and aircraft damages reported.
