A flap fell off a b52? Damn not exactly a small piece of metal. Was this inflight or on the ground.

What would happen if a flap fell off during flight ? Would it affect the aircraft when landing ?

Nope. Both inboard flaps (the 44 foot beasts) fell off on take off.

Did some minor damage to the skin, and tore up the flap tracks on their way off.

Here is the Executive Summary of the AIB report. The Full Narrative is here.

I'd recommend the Summary though. The full Narrative is long, and very dry.

C0bzz--->Also did it sound like a barking dog?


Happens during (normal) engine start when engine #2 is running and stabilized and #1 is started.
It's the hydraulic transfer pump kicing in because the right hydraulic system is pressurized, and not the left one.
Just like it's designed to do.

What problems does that cause when the aircraft comes back into land ? If any

Slightly higher landing speeds. They still had the outboard flaps so the landing speed wasn't a lot higher, but it was higher than normal.

Personally, I felt sorry for the poor student in the T-38 that had to do damage assessment on it. It was his first flight in a Talon.

Thanks for the input


I presume the damage assessment was done in the air. Is this a case of flying over and under the aircraft getting close to the b52 to inspect it. Also slightly off topic the t-38 talon .. Was that plane called something else when it first come into production?

I remember seeing these at air shows especially with the Swiss aerobatic display team

The F-5 was the single seat fighter the T-38 was developed from. The F-5 is still in use by a number of countries, including the Swiss.

There is a thread going around right now, the guy says he's an aviation expert, offering to answer any questions, you could go on that thread and ask him.

Even more impressive than the F-5 was the derivative F-20 Tigershark which used the F404 engines instead of the J-85s and was a true Mach 2.0 airplane. The best we got from the 38 was about 1.3.

I got to see the Tigershark when they were shopping it around trying to save it. Nice jet, too bad it wasn't sexy enough.
