lot I

“I”; will let me see, aye an (Idea). And there he was at 2000 feet four hundred knots and it hit. FLAMEOUT, The worst word a pilot of a jet can hear!! Now on many of the newer jets have an idea? Inlet door emergence actuator (idea), that what we called it. It works to restart the engine. It’s kind of like, blowing on hot colds to get a flame going.  Well it’s supposed too, and it does some times. Take a ride in an F-sixteen bird strike flameout.

FYI The glitch in the video near the end is when the pilot punched out /ejected the camera keep recording till the plane hits the ground.  

Now, what “I” ideas do you have?

I don't have an Idea, I'm still amazed by that video. Engine failure then nothing.....

I flew a simulator once. I was one of two in the whole class who didn't crash. I'd love to ride in a real one.

Hmm, flame out doesn't look like fun. That's why I do sedentary things! Interesting post and video, Roy!
