January 2010[edit]

February 2010[edit]

  • In February 2010, a serious incident involving a USAF B-2 occurred at Andersen AFB. The aircraft involved was AV-11 Spirit of Washington. The aircraft was severely damaged by fire while on the ground and underwent 18 months of repairs in order to enable it to fly back to the mainland for more comprehensive repairs.[12]
  • 3 February: A United States Army Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed in Germany about 1800 hrs. local time northeast of Mannheim, killing three people on board.[13] "The crew of the ill-fated UH-60 flight was conducting routine pilot proficiency training from Stuttgart Army Airfield to Coleman Army Airfield in Mannheim. USAREUR officials say during the approach to Coleman, the aircraft began a rapid descent and made contact with the trees. At the time of the crash, it was raining heavily and visibility below the clouds was about 1 mile [2 km], according to a German weather service spokesman."[14] KWF were Warrant Officer 3 Gary M. Farwell, 39; Chief Warrant Officer 2 Clayton M. Hickman, 32; and Cpl. Matthew E. Clark, 25. All three were assigned to the Stuttgart-based Company G, 52nd Regiment, 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade. A U.S. Army investigation, 15-6, was unable to determine a cause. "There was insufficient evidence to indicate that mechanical malfunction, environmental factors, pilot error or a combination of these factors contributed to the accident," according to a U.S. Army Europe news release issued Monday evening, 2 August 2010.[14][15]
  • 5 February: A Brazilian Air Force (FAB) Bell UH-1H Iroquois helicopter crashed in Campo Grande.[16]
  • 9 February: A Pakistan Air Force (PakAF) Bell AH-1 Cobra gunship helicopter crashed in the Teera Valley in Pakistan's Khyber tribal area near the Afghanistan's border. Both the pilot and gunner lost their lives in the incident.[17]

May 2010[edit]

  • 2 May: A US Army Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopter carrying two soldiers of the 116th Aviation Group was participating in a routine drill when it crashed on a ramp while taxiing at McEntire Joint National Guard Base, South Carolina, shortly before 1400 hrs. Both crew were taken to hospital. Pilot 1st Lt. Jonathan Shively, Jr, 33, of Jamestown, died of injuries, but second pilot, Chief Warrant Officer Roger Carpenter, 46, of Spartanburg, was in stable condition.[57][58]
  • 10 May: A US Army Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter made a controlled landing after being hit by enemy fire in Helmand Province. All crew members were safely returned to base. Helicopter was intentionally destroyed by international forces.[59]
  • 10 May: A USAF Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II from 23rd Wing 75th Fighter Squadron s/n 79-0141 crashed during takeoff at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. The pilot ejected safely.[60]
  • 11 May: An AdlA Dassault Mirage 2000 crashed in the Foret de Bougue close to Villeneuve-de-Marsan (Landes, Aquitaine), 6 km east of Mont de Marsan AB (LFBM), after technical problems. The pilot ejected safely and only received minor injuries.[61]
  • 12 May: After taking off from the base at Rimini, an Italian Air Force NH 500 helicopter of 15º Stormo (83º Centro CSAR) flew about fifty feet above the ground when the engine suddenly quit. The helicopter autorotated to impact. Both occupants escaped unhurt.[62]
  • 21 May: A USN Lockheed P-3 Orion accidentally released a sonobuoy shortly after departure from NAS Jacksonville, Florida, which fell 500 feet (150 m) and crashed through the roof of a home in Mandarin, Florida, coming to rest in a bedroom next to a bed. Resident Marwan Saman said his daughter had just gotten out of bed about half an hour earlier. The Navy sent an explosives demolition team to retrieve the 3-foot-long (0.91 m), 40-pound (18 kg) cylinder. No injuries were reported, and the Navy was making arrangements to pay for the damage. A malfunctioning launch tube was theorized for the drop.[63]

July 2010[edit]

  • 7 July: A USCG Sikorsky HH-60 Jayhawk crashed off of La Push, Washington, apparently after clipping power lines.[64]
  • 19 July: A PhilAF SIAI S-211, 09005, crashed during a training flight in the Philippines. The crew ejected safely.
  • 23 July: A Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) McDonnell-Douglas CF-18 Hornet, 188738, of 419 Moose Squadron, based at Cold Lake, crashed at Lethbridge County Airport during a low-speed, low-altitude practice run for the Alberta International Airshow. The pilot, Capt. Brian Bews, 36, ejected in seconds before the starboard wing impacted the airfield, suffering a compression fracture in three vertebrae.[65][66]
  • 26 July : An Israeli Air Force (IDF/AF) Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter crashed during a joint Israeli-Romanian aviation exercise in the Carpathian Mountains in northern Romania, killing six IAF officers and one Romanian Air Force officer.[67]
  • 28 July: A USAF Boeing C-17A Lot XII Globemaster III, 00-0173, c/n P-73, "Spirit of the Aleutians", callsign Sitka 43, of the 3d Wing, on a training mission, crashed at ≈1822 hrs into a wooded area on Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska, killing three members of the Alaska Air National Guard and one member of the US Air Force. The cause of the accident was nearly immediately placed under investigation.[68][69] This is apparently the first C-17 accident to result in the loss of life.[70] The crash damaged tracks of the Alaska Railroad, which temporarily suspended operations in the area of the accident.[71] The aircraft departed Runway 06 to practice maneuvers for the upcoming 30 July 2010 Arctic Thunder Airshow at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. "After the initial climbout and left turn, the mishap pilot executed an aggressive right turn. As the aircraft banked, the stall warning system activated to warn the crew of an impending stall. Instead of implementing stall recovery procedures, the pilot continued the turn as planned, and the aircraft entered a stall from which recovery was not possible. Although the pilot eventually attempted to recover the aircraft, he employed incorrect procedures, and there was not sufficient altitude to regain controlled flight. The aircraft impacted wooded terrain northwest of the airfield, damaged a portion of the Alaska Railroad, and was destroyed." KWF were the pilot, co-pilot, safety observer, and loadmaster. All died instantly. The aircraft was valued at $184,570,581. The investigative board president found "clear and convincing evidence that the cause of the mishap was pilot error. The mishap pilot violated regulatory provisions and multiple flight manual procedures, placing the aircraft outside established flight parameters at an attitude and altitude where recovery was not possible. Furthermore the mishap pilot and the mishap safety observer did not realize the developing dangerous situation and failed to make appropriate inputs. In addition to multiple procedural errors, the board president found sufficient evidence that the crew on the flight deck ignored cautions and warnings and failed to respond to various challenge and reply items. The board also found channelized attention, overconfidence, expectancy, misplaced motivation, procedural guidance, and program oversight substantially contributed to the mishap."[72]
  • 28 July: An Iraqi Air Force Mil Mi-17 crashed in a sandstorm south-west of Baghdad, killing five.
  • 30 July: A Hellenic Army Boeing AH-64DHA Longbow on a test flight crashed at Megara Air Force Base, Greece, killing two.

  • 3 March: Scandinavian Airlines flight SK681 with 132 people on board had to take last minute evasive action to avoid colliding with a Russian spy plane (Ilyushin 20m) just off the Swedish south coast near Malmö.[148][149]
  • 4 March: An MQ-1B Predator of the 11th Reconnaissance Squadron impacts on the runway at Creech Air Force Base, Nevada, during a practice landing. The accident was revealed when Air Combat Command released the abbreviated accident investigation report on 28 October 2014. The airframe suffered significant damage with a repair cost estimate of $4.5 million during the routine launch and recovery training mission. The board president found that the cause was low-level wind shear during a critical phase of landing, coupled with the pilot's lack of training in landing operations for the MQ-1B. Incorrect control inputs caused the aircraft to continue bouncing on the runway until its undercarriage was destroyed.[150]
  • 28 March: An Indian Air Force Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules crashed near Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, while on a training mission killing all five on board and destroying the aircraft.[151][152]

  • 2 June: Westland Gazelle XZ936 of the Empire Test Pilots School was severely damaged in a landing accident at MoD Boscombe Down.[155]
  • 4 June: An F/A-18E Super Hornet of VFA-81 Sun Liners crashed while trying to land on the USS. Carl Vinson off the coast of Southern California .Pilot ejected safely.
  • 4 June: An AV-8B Harrier crashed into a house in Imperial County,California. Pilot sustained minor injuries.
  • 9 June: A Spanish air force Eurofighter Typhoon crashed at Morón Air Base, killing the pilot.[156]
  • 23 June: A fire breaks out in the rear of USAF Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II, 10-5015, of the 58th Fighter Squadron, 'EG' tailcode, while on the runway during takeoff at 0915 hrs. from Eglin AFB, Florida. The pilot is able to shut down the engine and exit the airframe without injury. A grounding order of the 26 Air Force F-35s based at Eglin until 25 June is extended indefinitely after an initial safety investigation turns up "additional evidence and information", stated Lt. Hope Cronin, spokeswoman for the 33d Fighter Wing. The order does not affect Marines and Navy versions of the F-35, and so far is limited to Eglin. The Air Force has not released the extent of the damage, but Cronin said that the fire was significant.[157] The fighter suffered a major engine failure that reportedly caused a 12 to 15 ft (3.7 to 4.6 m) section to detach, starting the fire.[158] Fire was caused by excessive rubbing of fan blades inside the engine. Category 5 damage so it is a write off.[159] The accident report, released 5 June 2015 by the Air Education and Training Command Investigation Board, confirmed that the engine failed when the third stage forward integral arm of a rotor fractured and broke free during takeoff. Pieces of the failed rotor arm cut through the engine's fan case, the engine bay, an internal fuel tank and hydraulic and fuel lines before exiting through the aircraft's upper fuselage. The failure caused leaking fuel and hydraulic fluid to ignite and burn the rear two thirds of the airframe.[160]
  • 23 June: A German Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon collided with a civilian Learjet during an exercise. The Learjet crashed near the town of Olsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, killing the two crew. The Eurofighter Typhoon landed safely.[161]

  • 10 March: Seven Marines and four soldiers were missing early Wednesday, 11 March, after an Army Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed during a night training exercise at Eglin Air Force Base. Base officials said the Marines are part of a Camp Lejeune-based special operations group and the soldiers were from a Hammond, Louisiana-based National Guard unit. The helicopter was reported missing around 2030 hrs, and went down near Range A-17, in the Santa Rosa Sound, east of the Navarre Beach Bridge[192] Tuesday and search and rescue crews found debris from the crash around 0200 Wednesday, Eglin spokesman Andy Bourland said. "At this time all are missing," Bourland said. Names of those involved were being withheld pending notification of next of kin, he said. Bourland said the Army helicopter took off from a nearby airport in Destin and joined other aircraft in the training exercise.[193] Bourland said that the second UH-60 on the training mission was not involved in the crash and all of its crew were accounted for.[194][195] The aircraft are assigned to the 1–244th Assault Helicopter Battalion in Hammond, Louisiana.[192] The aircraft apparently struck the surface of Santa Rosa Sound,in Navarre, as wreckage and human remains have been recovered from both shores of the waterway. Heavy fog slowed recovery operations.[196][197] An investigation conducted by the Louisiana National Guard and the U.S. Special Operations Command found that the crash was caused when the two pilots became disoriented and lost control while switching from visual-based to instrument-based flight procedures in a thick fog, it was announced on 4 June 2015.[198]

April 2015[edit]

  • 16 April: A Pakistani Air Force Dassault Mirage III fighter jet crashed during a routine flight. The pilot ejected and was rescued.[199]
  • 16 April: Two Vietnam People's Air Force Sukhoi Su-22M4s collided mid-air and crashed in the South China Sea. Both pilots ejected but are still being searched for by Vietnamese search and rescue.[200]
  • 21 April: A brand new Lockheed AC-130J Ghostrider, 09-5710,[201] is overstressed in an accidental inverted flight condition and recovery during a medium risk flying qualities test sortie over the Gulf of Mexico by the 413th Flight Test Squadron out of Eglin Main Base, rendering the airframe a write off. An Accident Investigation Board report, released at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, 6 November 2015, states that the accident, which took place ~40 miles S of Eglin Main, resulted in no injuries. A crew was performing steady heading sideslips at an altitude of approximately 15,000 feet. The aircraft exceeded the targeted angle of sideslip until it departed controlled flight and momentarily inverted before being recovered after losing approximately 5,000 feet of altitude. The aircraft was "over G'd," and exceeded its design limit load, thereby nullifying the airworthiness of the aircraft and rendering it a total loss, with damages estimated at more than $115 million. The board president found the cause of the accident to be the AC-130J pilot's "excessive rudder input during the test point followed by inadequate rudder input to initiate a timely recovery from high angle of sideslip due to overcontrolled/undercontrolled aircraft and wrong choice of action during an operation."[202] The airframe had experienced a similar incident in February 2015.[201]

May 2015[edit]

  • 8 May: A Pakistan Army Mil Mi-17 crashed, killing eight people, including the ambassadors of Norway and the Philippines.[203][204]

  • 12 May: A U.S. Navy Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet of NAS Oceana-based VFA-211 crashed into the Persian Gulf after launching off the USS Theodore Roosevelt. A 5th Fleet spokesman could not confirm whether the crash was due to pilot error or aircraft malfunction, adding that those details will be sorted out in an investigation to follow. Both aviators ejected and were quickly recovered by search and rescue personnel. "We're grateful for the quick work of the search and rescue pilots, and we're grateful that they're on the ship and undergoing medical care, and appear to be doing well," Cmdr. Kevin Stephens told Navy Times. Initial reports indicate both are conscious and alert, and without serious injury," 5th Fleet said.[206]
  • 12 May: A U.S. Marine Corps Bell UH-1Y Venom, BuNo 168792, 'SE-08',[207] of Camp Pendleton-based HMLA-469 "Vengeance" was declared missing in the Charikot Region of the Himalaya Mountains while conducting humanitarian relief operations in the wake of the Magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck the region earlier.

Jeff "Kooch" Kuss (Opposing Solo, Blue Angel No. 6), crashed just after takeoff while performing the Split-S maneuver during a practice run for The Great Tennessee Air Show in Smyrna, Tennessee. The Navy investigation found that Capt. Kuss performed the maneuver at too low of an altitude while failing to retard the throttle out of afterburner, causing him to fall too fast and recover at too low of an altitude. Capt. Kuss ejected, but his parachute was immediately engulfed in flames, causing him to fall to his death. Kuss' body was recovered multiple yards away from the crash site. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. The investigation also cites weather and pilot fatigue as additional causes to the crash.[243]

It remains unclear what exactly the plane and its crew were doing in Malta in the first place, with the Maltese government insisting the plane was part of a "customs surveillance operation" intended to trace trafficking routes, despite French customs publicly stating no customs officials were on board and EU Foreign Affairs High Commissioner Federica Mogherini making it clear that the flight was "not related to any EU activities".
