RC Jet Crash Mid Air Break Apart

This was in Waco, Texas 9-8-07. Just happen to be the only one filming at the time. Looks like the Lamination came apart on the left wing and then caused the fuselage to break apart just in front of the wing. This was a new plane.

    I saw a Bob Violet explode like that one time in Grenada Mississippi. What caused it was the owner was using a plastic soda bottle for the air retracts because you can pump them with a lot of air. Anyway, it was very hot that day and the temperature in the fuse caused the pop bottle to explode when it was expanding because it was over pressured. Maybe something like this happened here.

    hope he had is insurance coverage up to date. damn, i’ve flown jets for a few years now and never even heard of this happening to one. i think i’d rather watch it hit the ground from a distance than to watch it just disintegrate right before my eyes.

    This is a first time I see a plane disintegrated in mid flight. Something must have exploded
    inside the aircraft. It’s good to find out the cause to learn from it and prevent this crash from repeating.
    Anyway sorry for your loss.

    Sorry for the loss. I’ve seen a few of these turbine powered aircraft come apart in the air, what mess they make.

    Turbine RC jets are state-of-the-art, definitely superior and more realistic-sounding in comparison to powerfan-powered RC jets, but are they expensive! And if something happens to them… well, there’s a good ol’ couple thousand dollars down the drain.

    Sad ending to a nice plane. These turbine airplanes are the state of the art, but when they fail they can really come apart in flight.

    That plane I would estimate, total ready to fly cost between $9000-15000. Turbine powered RC jets can cost up 25K depending on setup and craftsmanship.
