Amazing story of a US Air Force pilot who ejected from aircraft and the aircraft maned to recover from dive and land in a corn field. The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as a separate branch of the military on 18 September 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947.[5] It is the most recent branch of the U.S. military to be formed, and is the largest and one of the world’s most technologically advanced air forces. The USAF articulates its core functions as Nuclear Deterrence Operations, Special Operations, Air Superiority, Global Integrated ISR, Space Superiority, Command and Control, Cyberspace Superiority, Personnel Recovery, Global Precision Attack, Building Partnerships, Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support.[6]

The U.S. Air Force is a military service within the Department of the Air Force, one of the three military departments of the Department of Defense. The USAF is headed by the civilian Secretary of the Air Force, who is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The highest-ranking military officer in the Department of the Air Force is the Chief of Staff of the Air Force who exercises supervision over Air Force units, and serves as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Air Force combat forces and mobility forces are assigned, as directed by the Secretary of Defense, to the Combatant Commanders, and neither the Secretary of the Air Force nor the Chief of Staff have operational command authority over them.

The U.S. Air Force provides air support for surface forces[7] and aids in the recovery of troops in the field. As of 2012, the service operates more than 5,638 aircraft, 450 ICBMs and 63 satellites. It has a $140 billion budget with 332,854 active duty personnel, 185,522 civilian personnel, 71,400 Air Force Reserve personnel, and 106,700 Air National Guard personnel.[2]

Mission, vision, and functions[edit]
According to the National Security Act of 1947 (61 Stat. 502), which created the USAF:

In general the United States Air Force shall include aviation forces both combat and service not otherwise assigned. It shall be organized, trained, and equipped primarily for prompt and sustained offensive and defensive air operations. The Air Force shall be responsible for the preparation of the air forces necessary for the effective prosecution of war except as otherwise assigned and, in accordance with integrated joint mobilization plans, for the expansion of the peacetime components of the Air Force to meet the needs of war.
ยง8062 of Title 10 US Code defines the purpose of the USAF as:[8]

to preserve the peace and security, and provide for the defense, of the United States, the Territories, Commonwealths, and possessions, and any areas occupied by the United States;
to support national policy;
to implement national objectives;
to overcome any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the United States.
The stated mission of the USAF today is to “fly, fight, and win in air, space, and cyberspace”.[9]

“The United States Air Force will be a trusted and reliable joint partner with our sister services known for integrity in all of our activities, including supporting the joint mission first and foremost. We will provide compelling air, space, and cyber capabilities for use by the combatant commanders. We will excel as stewards of all Air Force resources in service to the American people, while providing precise and reliable Global Vigilance, Reach and Power for the nation”.[9]

Core functions[edit]
Recently, the Air Force refined its understanding of the core duties and responsibilities it performs as a Military Service Branch, streamlining what previously were six distinctive capabilities and seventeen operational functions into twelve core functions to be used across the doctrine, organization, training, equipment, leadership, and education, personnel, and facilities spectrum. These core functions express the ways in which the Air Force is particularly and appropriately suited to contribute to national security, but they do not necessarily express every aspect of what the Air Force contributes to the nation. It should be emphasized that the core functions, by themselves, are not doctrinal constructs.[10]

Air Superiority
Air Superiority is “that degree of dominance in the air battle of one force over another which permits the conduct of operations by the former and its related land, sea, air, and special operations forces at a given time and place without prohibitive interference by the opposing force” (JP 1-02).[10]

Offensive Counterair (OCA) is defined as “offensive operations to destroy, disrupt, or neutralize enemy aircraft, missiles,

  1. Like an ornery horse-got tired of the rough handling, " bucked its pilot" then sat down on a comfy quiet field!๐Ÿ˜‚

    Proof of American skill and engineering- time to BRING thay back in America…

  2. Didn't they fire you from airforce after you ejected at 8000ft?
    You seriously wasted a fine aircraft. that too at a height which could have killed someone on the ground.
    Fighter pilots often don't leave there aircraft above 500ft, without making sure that it crashes at a safe place.

  3. what a crazy story!!it's mostly all good,,the ejection had to suck,,but to get the aircraft recovered and operational,,and to fly it AGAIN!! Alien intervention,,just kidding,,Glad the Pilot survived to share this story.

  4. Talk nice about that plane. It has relatives in the same organization. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

  5. When the pilot ejected the cockpit(now missing the canopy) probably acted as a airbrake, pulling the nose up, causing the aircraft to recover and land since the engine was at idle.

  6. Marine Corps RF-4B on short final to Iwakuni, fuel emergency, engine surging at a half mile, crew ejected. When they left the airplane, the nose dropped momentarily, and apparently enough for the fuel pumps to find just enough for the engines to spool up one last time. It landed on runway centerline, and stopped by itself, completely un-harmed except for the rocket blast damage in the cockpits.

  7. Flat spins are usually Weight and Balance related from an aft CG. By the pilot ejecting with the seat and canopy close to 400 to 500 pounds were removed from the aircraft forward of the CG which would totally change the dynamic of the spin

  8. I'm guessing that will be written into the how to, manual as the last thing to try in case of. Pop, the canopy and wait. If that doesn't work,,, then eject. Haha.

  9. The story is that Candise Kane from US HUD, US Corps of Engineers 88-93, happend to be on the thruway and saw Mrs Laura Bush being driven by her driver with her eyes closed. She was drugged. They nabbed her at McDonald's on Niagara Street in Buffalo NYwhen they told me to wait for my food. We were taken to Russia's PUTIN in downtown Buffalo NY Office areas and its New York State Building, Donovan Bldg. Prior to that she had to pray for her car to work, alternator and had accidents that were alqaida going to war with the 1 on Union done after the Pope John Paul II came into town and saw her driving by, still brain injured herself and he with the President having visited him and after he had received a letter from Candise Kane and she included seeing George W Bush on a corner street, mad and in his vehicle. She did not know he was in need due to brain injury but could see him visually and included the story due to it was HIGHLY UNUSUAL THAT HE WAS ON A STREET ALONE, IN A CAR, MADDENED BY CIRCUMSTANCES NOT KNOWN BY HER, AND SHE HAD JUST COME FROM DICK CHENEY IN A GAS STATION NEARBY. THEY WERE KIDNAPPED BYTHEIR OWN GUARDS. STORY YET TO COME DUE TO THEY CAN Detonate and Agents had betrayed them, but knew Kane in Lancaster NY School.

  10. he guinness is like that , a lot a peoples just thinking the minded like him is a crazy ,, But now we are stay fly and fly around the worlds ,, Fly away anyway anytimes … But the History we are never forget because human do a first traveling use a sea from land to other land … transformer safety use at super sonic to flight prepare the parachute to all passenger
