Quick question: could there be some small gains for the operator in terms of fuel economy and/or wear and tear on the engines ? It might end up being a complex enough scenario for the operators to do...

Hello Slip and Turn!

Thank you Gums! If I may be so bold: What was the design philosophy on the F-16 early on? Did it require a "chorus" of sensors to pass data on re AOA, airspeed, etc to render a decision?

733Driver; The info on the web about this "accident" are quite revealing. The hubris and idiocy of the PIC are staggering. Luckily they didn't kill a lot of folks on the ground.

Alas,
