    Greek Mirage 2000-5 crashes into Aegean Sea

    The Mirage 2000-5 crashed 9 nautical miles North East of the Skyros island in the Aegean Sea, while attempting to land at the Skyros air base.

    The single seat fighter was reportedly returning from a operational mission to intercept Turkish fighter jets.

    Over the past couple of days, the Hellenic Air Force has intensified its patrol missions on the maritime border with Turkey following escalations in the relationship between Athens and Ankara.

    Turkey refuted claims that its jets were in the region and the crash was following alleged dog fight with a Turkish fighter.

    Strikes in Syria: "It was all over in two minutes"


    "We assess that over 40 surface-to-air missiles were employed by the Syrian regime," [...] and "most of these launches occurred after the last impact of our strike was over."
    [...] the Syrian launches were ineffective and "clearly increased the risk to their own people based on their indiscriminate response -- when you shoot iron into the sky without guidance, it will inevitably fall to earth."

    Russia threatens to halt Salis at the end of 2018

    C’est ce qu’on appelle un coup de semonce. Selon nos informations, rejoignant celles de Ouest-France, le groupe russe Volga-Dniepr a annoncé à l’OTAN qu’il arrêterait de fournir des avions de transport Antonov 124 aux forces de l’alliance atlantique, dont la France, dès la fin de l’année 2018. Le groupe russe claque ainsi la porte du contrat Salis, signé dans le cadre de l’OTAN,

The Russian group slams the door of the contract Salis, signed in the framework of NATO,
    Well... we'll see.

    Navy: [T--45 Goshawk] flew too low — for thrills — before crash


    Navy officials say in a report the T-45C Goshawk was flying below allowable altitudes Oct. 1 when it plunged into woods near Tellico Plains.
    [...]
    The report cites a “culture” within the individual training unit and Naval air training at large that allowed pilots to fly “beyond the bounds” of approved Naval Air Training Command curriculum. It also says leadership failed to ensure training operations adhered to approved publications

    Pentagon Cited Boeing Over Quality Concerns Going Back Years

    Flaws at Boeing’s St. Louis aircraft production facility ranged from missing, backwards and out-of-specification fasteners found on undelivered F/A-18s and F-15s to oversized holes, missing components and incorrect parts installed on the factory’s production line, according to four “Corrective Action Requests” issued by the Pentagon’s contractor watchdog.
