There is a video of a much closer (believe it or not) near miss between two RAAF F/A-18 Hornets. The underside of one Hornet flashes past with the stab pulled back as far as it could go. I had a copy on the DRN and I have seen it in the public domain but can't seem to find it now.

Trojan - That'd be the one where they reckon the nosecone of the hornet filming went between the vertical stab's of the other?

Classic case of both pilot & nav looking at the green writing and not outside the cockpit. Classic SAP runs like this are, arguably, one of the most dangerous periods of flight where both of the crew are concentrating on the offsets/target to the detriment of all round awareness.

Been there, got the t-shirt

Would I be correct in thinking that whistling is a shock reaction?

Ah what the hell. Look at the date stamp on the first post on this thread. Again, you read it on PPRuNe first.

Hey, maybe PPRuners should start claiming 'finders fee's or royalties'?

Coo, maybe we could fund 558 with the profits?

OK, my coats' the green one in the corner.

Devil Classic case of reading the green writing

Yet another comment about HUD, lookout and SAP runs.. it's as if near-misses never occurred before HUDs and Mud Movers... Or maybe, before videos, people just weren't honest! This video is from a few years ago now and the lessons learnt were brought out at the time. We all agree that an avoidance system is a good idea for all.. sadly a good idea and cost don't generally go hand in hand.. the least the Sun could have done before re-posting it was spell the aircraft correctly!! aaaaaaaaaah... rant over..

Yes.. the Tornado OCU can often be found in low-level south of Linton-on-Ouse!? Not... Day Pilot check from Marham

Made the News at Ten last night, aledgedly MOD is "launching an investigation" Well they will have to go back a few years for the IR, hopefully it was fully investigated when it happened. The rear seat Pilot Instructor has since completed a ground tour, Staff College and is now 1/2 way through another ground tour. Must have been a slow news day.

Transmits "Marham 29, Marham 29, on guard" as they pull up to have a look at the Tuc. Unlikely to be OCU I would suggest!
