A British Royal Air Force Eurofighter crashed on landing

A British Royal Air Force Eurofighter crashed on landing in eastern England when its front wheel failed to descend properly, the Ministry of Defence in London said Jan. 17.

The Typhoon jet suffered damage following a malfunction of its landing gear as it touched down at the RAF Coningsby station in Lincolnshire, eastern England, on Jan. 16, an MoD spokesman told Agence France-Presse.

No one was hurt and an investigation is now under way into what caused the problem, he added

Looks like 29 are going to be short of a bus for a bit then.

(Shame that the mong who tried to argue it was an F3 that crashed deleted his post instead of allowing himself to be Waahed into the middle of next week.)

Sadly all they could afford was third party, fire and theft: not accidental damage :(

Whatever the p1ss-take value, good drills from the pilot that he was able to walk away from it.
