The plane suffered a flame-out during gunnery practice, and the pilot crash landed, wheels retracted, on the beach. The plane was started to catch on fire and he couldn't open the canopy to get out, nor could he jettison the canopy because it was partially open. He ejected from the stationary plane and fell into the water. He swam to the shore and waited for help. He couldn't fly fighters after this incident, but still flew transport planes and retired as a three-star general

FEEDBACK

Dear Mike,
You should correct some abreviations as follows:
- Tenente (Ten.) is the Portuguese way to write Lieutenant;
- Sargento (Sgt.) , to sergeant;
- Aspirante (Asp.), to a transient grade inmediately under 2º Lieutenant.
Maybe some war names are not correctly shown, so here they are:
1) 15th June 1977, MB326, Ten. Mayo and Capt. L. M. Ticchetti (not Tichetti);
2) 5th July 1977, MB326,  Sgt. J.A.P. Filho and Ten. M.A.C. Azevedo;
3) 8th July 1977, MB326, Ten. A.M.G. Filho;
4) 4th August 1977, MB326, Ten. A.I. Bittencourt (not Bittercourt) & Asp. A.F.C. Kauffmann (not Kanffmann);
5) 26th August 1977, MB326, Asp. P.R. Pertusi.
Regards,
Romulo

NOTES TO INCLUDE

Brazilian Navy A-4 Skyhawks - to research

Hi!

First, sorry my English!
I was visiting your site and saw that you have a page dedicated to
Brazilian Air Force crashes.
Well, i have some info to help you.

June 7, 1997
A-1 AMX unit/serial 5532 crashed in a test flight one week before being
delivered to FAB.
Embraer's test pilot Alberto de Almeida Neto (48 year old - Ex-FAB) died
in the crash. He didn't eject.
Some people that saw the crash, said that he was doing some aerobatics
over a small town before loosing control and crash in the woods.
Others, said that the fighter was already in flames before the crash.
Here's a picture of the crash site, and some info in Portuguese language.
http://jornal.valeparaibano.com.br/1997/06/07/tau/foto-aviao.html

July 24, 1998
A-1 AMX unit/serial N/A crashed in a training flight near Santa Cruz AFB
- Rio de Janeiro.
Air Force pilot tenente-coronel aviador (lieutenant-colonel aviator)
César Bombonato (42 years old) died in the crash (he didn't eject).
When in a dive, he suffered spatial disorientation and crashed in the
sea. His plane broke in two parts.
He was the squadron commander at that time, and was training for the Red
Flag Exercice.
Some info about him:
-He created, in 1989, the patch for the new AMX sqdn (1º/16º Fighter
Aviation Group - Adelphi Sqdn).
http://www.abra-pc.com.br/adelfi-img.html
-He was an excellent photographer, and a book with his pictures was
published after his death.

That's all for now!

Eder

 

Initial flight of the first AMX prototype was on 15 May 1984, with Manlio Quarantelli at the controls. The prototype crashed on 1 June, Quarantelli ejecting but dying of his injuries. The second prototype performed its first flight on 19 November 1984 and took over the test and trials program. The Italians built three more prototypes and EMBRAER built two, for a total of seven. Production went ahead in 1986.
