Very interesting.  BF-04 is the first fully-equipped B-model as opposed to the earlier SMD aircraft that were aero testbeds.

If you have not heard, there was a failure this morning of the Expedition 57 Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft . Both astronauts are safe after an inflight abort and a very hard landing.

The ISS astronauts captured the liftoff and failure of the what it is believed the 2nd second stage.



And a photo of the anomoly.

Damn, the CIS is suddenly having a lot more problems with boosters that have been solid for years.  I bet there are some interesting aspects as to what changed to cause this.

Not very cool as someone in the Belgium Air Force is probably painting rocks or unemployed this morning.

On 11th October at 1410L, a technician was working on an F-16 at Florennes Air Base when he accidentally activated the six-barrel 20mm Vulcan M61A-1 cannon causing serious damage to another F-16AM (FA-128) that was parked in front. Full of fuel, the second F-16AM exploded and damaged the first aircraft .
