Thats two crashes at or around Edwards AFB in the last two months!. For those who don't know, Edwards is where some of the leading edge aircraft are tested. Astronauts also train here.



Test pilots and flight test engineers are trained in T-38s at Edwards, while Air Force Materiel Command uses the jet to test experimental equipment such as electrical and weapon systems. NASA uses T-38s as trainers for astronauts


T-38 Talon


Hearing this reminds me of a article I read about a test pilots UFO encounter at Edwards. Could this be related to the crashes?

lets hope that the pilots are alright. the GPS satellites are nearing old age, lets hope that the coming galactic alignment doesn't screw too much with said systems.

What i have heard was one of the crew had serious arm and leg injuries

The other has not been found yet,??????

I understand The injured crew member was found by a off duty sheriff's deputy who saw his chute and went out in his 4x4 to rescue him.

NWC China Lakes rescue helos have been gone since just after the crash looking for the missing crew-member.

The area is flat and rolling desert without any real terrain to hide anything.
Why they have not found the missing crew member is unknown if he ejected???
if he did no eject its a body recovery in the wreckage.

If i remember right if one of the crew ejects the other should have gone out automatically a few seconds later

Thanks for the update. China Lake is right next to Edwards right? Please keep us informed if the local media breaks any news.

That is odd that they havn't found the second pilot yet. Actually thats very odd.

I thought these pilots carry a radio/walkie talkie on the UHF guard some 243MHZ. Capable of voice communications and or a beeper/homing signal? I also thought these radios are stored in their ejection seats or such.

The fact that one does not seem to have been found indicated to me that the pilor or crew member is somehow incapacitated.

Just a thought.
