That was an engine run as part of the Dash 1 checks. They left sometime today. They had to check vibration on the airframe with all that damage, and well as engine control and check for leaks.

Pic of her departing, posted by the Dyess page. Notice that it appears #3 doesn't even have an engine.

And the fleet is stood down again. A routine seat inspection found a potential fleet wide issue with the drogue chute that stabilizes the seat during the ejection sequence. All aircraft are stood down until a complete inspection of the egress system is completed. Each aircraft will be allowed to resume flying after the inspection and any necessary repairs are completed.

Didnt say if it was an Aces or a MB seat.

It is such a pretty plane, though... Very aesthetically pleasing for some reason.

I believe they use a variation of the ACES II. It was modified to include armrests and leg restraints.

They're great fun to watch taking off, but Jesus they can be pigs.

A small number of aircraft have resumed flying. Approximately five aircraft a week are being inspected, with three at Dyess and two at Ellsworth.
