Homenaje al piloto espa帽ol

He visto estas palabras de nuestro amigo聽聽en Facebook y no me he podido resistir a reproducirlas para nuestros lectores en beBee.

Homenaje al piloto espa帽ol

Me impact贸 el tr谩gico accidente que sufri贸 el d铆a de la Hispanidad un capit谩n del Ej茅rcito del Aire. Mi padre fue piloto de caza de la XI promoci贸n, justo 50 promociones anterior. Varios compa帽eros de su promoci贸n perdieron la vida en accidente de aviaci贸n siendo a煤n j贸venes.

Esta es su versi贸n de los hechos (sin contar con m谩s informaci贸n que la ofrecida por los medios): En el momento de aproximaci贸n a la Base A茅rea de Albacete los pilotos de los reactores en formaci贸n proceden a la maniobra de ruptura. Esta es una maniobra que consiste en romper la formaci贸n para poder aterrizar.

Los cazas recorren en vuelo la pista de aterrizaje y, al llegar a la cabecera, el jefe realiza un viraje de 180掳 para enfilar la pista y aterrizar. Cuando a煤n est谩 en la pista lo hace el segundo de los reactores en formaci贸n y as铆 sucesivamente. De esta forma consiguen distanciarse y aterrizar consecutivamente.

Esta maniobra se realiza a una velocidad baja que permite una sustentaci贸n m铆nima adecuada para el aterrizaje. Al piloto le debi贸 fallar el motor justo cuando iba a proceder a efectuar esta maniobra. La baja velocidad que llevaba en ese momento as铆 como una altura baja no le iba a permitir planear una larga distancia y llegar a la pista. El piloto vio que el avi贸n se dirig铆a a una zona de viviendas por lo que decidi贸 no eyectar el asiento.

El mecanismo de eyecci贸n puede utilizarse incluso con el avi贸n en tierra pues proyecta el asiento a suficiente altura para el paraca铆das. Sin embargo, el avi贸n habr铆a continuado su trayectoria hasta estrellarse contra la urbanizaci贸n.

El piloto decidi贸 utilizar los segundos restantes para intentar cambiar la trayectoria del avi贸n. Realiz贸 un viraje para enfilarlo hacia un sembrado. El problema es que el viraje hace que la nave pierda velocidad por lo que el avi贸n perdi贸 la m铆nima sustentaci贸n y, llegado ese momento, el avi贸n cae a plomo.

Todos pensar铆amos que el reactor podr铆a haber aterrizado en el sembrado. Pero eso es m谩s bien de pel铆cula. Seg煤n mi padre un caza s贸lo puede aterrizar en pista. Las opciones son solamente pista o eyecci贸n. El piloto sab铆a lo que hac铆a y sacrific贸 su vida. "Es un h茅roe ", termin贸 diciendo mi padre.

Sirva de homenaje a todos los pilotos que se juegan la vida y que est谩n dispuestos a perderla si con eso salvan otras. Y a sus familias, que frecuentemente tienen que vivir en vilo.

En tan pocos segundos analizar los posibles caminos de huida teniendo en cuenta las vidas humanas en juego es algo alcanzable solo para personas hechas de otra pasta. Gran homenaje para gran persona...
Un h茅roe sin duda. D.E.P.

This buzz hits home much closer for me because it involves the son of a business colleague of my brother and whose memorial I attended to pay respects to this remarkable young man. Like this story which would otherwise lead with the story of an air crash, there was a personal story that was not told, as personal as the Spanish story which for now only talks about the accident itself http://www.avgeekery.com/breaking-spanish-ef2000-typhoon-crashes-on-approach-killing-pilot/ The death of Blake Slater was even more tragic in that he was just three weeks from fulfilling his dream of gaining a commercial pilot license with a job at West Jet and had the job offer in hand simply waiting for meeting flight hour requirements. This was not mentioned in the original story, which like the Spanish story focused on the accident not the pilot. http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/guyana-plane-crash-kills-canadian-pilot-blake-slater-1.2504579 For his flight training hours he decided that he wanted to help the poor and so decided flight training and social good were a great mix. In Guyana he engaged in that social good as well as taking flights to complete his flight hours. He could have taken a conventional path but chose a higher purpose. A freak accident saw his plane fall into a dense forest, not even his pilot training could save him in this situation but at his memorial we saw wonderful pictures of the social work he engaged with villagers and how he brought happiness into the lives of people who had less. Also at his memorial we heard his father tell us that he died doing what his passion was. Whether it is a story of a pilot who saved lives by thinking of others or a young man who dressed up as a kid as a pilot and losing his life in the service of others. The personal story always has more human depth than a news account of a crash.

Great pilot, without them we would almost have no epic stories to tell. Great piece for practicing Spanish with a Sunday morning coffee. I hope to get one beBee coffee mug one day.

No solo fu茅 un heroe, sino un gran profesional. Aqu铆 es donde se siente la palabra Valiente. Se lanz贸 en picado (recuerdas la anecdota de julio de la Iglesia? al agua), sin analizar si eran buenas personas, si habria ni帽@s...y era padre de familia, sacrific贸 la vida de la suya, por salvar la de miles. https://www.elespanol.com/reportajes/20171012/253725101_0.html Valiente, Profesional, Heroe. Gracias por traernos la explicaci贸n de Alfonso desde facebook.
