F-16 chase down stolen Plane

Wtf what a moron and a good way to get shot down




Quote:
WAUSAU, Wis. A man suspected of stealing a plane in Canada and flying erratically across three states was trying to commit suicide, hoping he would be shot down by military fighter planes, a state trooper said Tuesday.

Adam Dylan Leon, 31, was arrested at a convenience store in Ellsinore, Mo., shortly after landing the single-engine, four-seat Cessna on a rural Missouri road Monday night, ending a six-hour flight, police said.

The plane was tracked as a "flight safety issue" and was not believed to be a terrorist threat, Mike Kucharek, spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said in a telephone interview from Colorado Springs.

The Missouri state trooper who arrested Leon said on ABC's "Good Morning America" that the pilot told him he had hoped to be shot down.

"He made a statement that he was trying to commit suicide and he didn't have the courage to do it himself. And his idea was to fly the aircraft into the United States, where he would be shot down," Trooper Justin Watson said on ABC.

Watson said Leon apparently hitched a ride to the convenience store after landing on a highway and taxiing the plane to a side road. He didn't appear surprised when the officer entered the convenience store to arrest him.

Leon said "he didn't have any ID, but he was the person we were looking for," Watson said.

He said Leon "gave me no indication that it was anything other than he was having personal problems and was in an attempt to end his life."

"He did state that he thought at one time he was getting shot down, but apparently the Air Force were just shooting flares," the trooper said.

Leon was in the Butler County Jail on Tuesday in Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The plane was reported stolen Monday afternoon from Confederation College Flight School at Thunder Bay International Airport in Ontario. It was intercepted by F-16 fighters from the Wisconsin National Guard after crossing into the state near the Michigan state line.

The pilot was flying erratically and didn't communicate with the fighter pilots, Kucharek said at the Aerospace Defense Command.

The pilot acknowledged seeing the F-16s but didn't obey their nonverbal commands to follow them, Kucharek said.

The plane's path over Wisconsin prompted a brief, precautionary evacuation of the Wisconsin capitol in Madison, although there were few workers in the building at the time and the governor was not in town.

The Cessna 172 continued south over Illinois and eastern Missouri before landing near Ellsinore, about 120 miles south-southwest of St. Louis.

The plane landed about six hours after the reported theft, and had enough fuel for about eight hours of flight, NAADC officials said.

"We tailed it all the way," Maj. Brian Markin said. "Once it landed our aircraft returned to base."

FBI spokesman Richard Kolko told a cable news network that Leon was a native of Turkey who changed his name from Yavuz Berke and became a Canadian citizen last year.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I bet it was a PITA for the Viper pilots to try to go that slow. The guvmint should have sent up a couple of Apaches to chase the Cessna instead.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Check again Homeslice!!!! The F-16 is officially the Falcon, however ever since it first flew its nickname has been Viper (given by the pilots) because of the way it looks upon landing.

The F-15 is the Eagle.

Aww fucksticks. I was wrong all over on that one, I should have known better. I loved the old ass Falcon 3.0 flight sim.

They wouldn't do that LOL! They would be in pairs, always ensuring 1 F-16 was behind the Cessna.

It would be more like taking a Busa and trying to stay at 20 in a school zone with a cop behind you

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Actually a 172's normal cruising speed is 95-100kts. An Apache Longbow usually cruises at about 140-148kts. So the ugly bastid is plenty quick to keep up with the Cessna.

Plus, can you imagine seeing one out the side of your window; the pgunner looking over at you and the 30mm cannon following his head movements?

I love that game!!! That's what got me hooked on having the Y axis inverted on all my FPS.

and I think Chinooks will break 200..
Apache would have no prob keeping up.. but maybe getting there and or catching up was the problem..
Surely an F-16 would have the advantage there
in any case.. I imagine it was an attempt at "most awesomest suicide [email protected]#[email protected]!#"

how cool would that be? To go out like Doug Masters

Yeah, Chinooks are a lot faster than Apaches or Blackhawks. Those fat boys can haul.

Something is only slow and has a "shitty range" when compared to something else. To what are you comparing the AH-64D?

When they came up next to him he should had slowed down to near stall speed. I dont think a F16 can fly at 60mph.

I was wondering if the JSF liftfan could produce enough downward thrust to knock another plane out of the air. that would be pretty funny.
