FLASHBACK: Video Shows T-50 Jet Up For $2 Billion Contract Crashing After One Too Many Barrel Rolls

A video has resurfaced showing an incredible plane crash. The only thing that makes it more amazing is it happened more than once.

In the amazing video below, a Golden Eagle T-50, does a series of maneuvers before crashing into the ground, sending flames and smoke billowing into the air. Things really get crazy at the 4-minute mark:

Incredibly, the same plane skidded off a runway and exploded earlier this year. The plane goes down the runway, and all seems well until it slides off track. Then, it suddenly bursts into flames.

A second video of the incident shows the plane skid before catching fire:

This same plane is before the Trump administration now for a $2 billion contract this summer, the biggest ongoing Air Force competition.

But KAI’s T-50 aircraft models have struggled with reliability and their current proposed aircraft would not be a brand new, clean sheet aircraft. Instead, It would be a used, modified aircraft. Refusing to go clean sheet is not entirely uncommon, but it does raise serious questions when considering the T-50’s troubled history.

KAI has also suffered delays in delivery of the T-50. In February 2018, two T-50 trainers were finally delivered to the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) after the trainers were delayed. When the trainers did arrive, the RTAF requested replacement engines after inspections found they had been damaged.

KAI has been plagued by scandal, as previously reported by Freedom Outpost:

“KAI, which works with Lockheed Martin on the T-50 trainer, underwent a raid from 100 prosecutors and investigators on their offices. They reportedly found that KAI had allegedly purchased and installed an eraser program possibly to delete evidence left on computers and electronic devices. Five of KAI’s subcontractors underwent a raid within days of the previous raid. Prosecutors suspected KAI and its subcontractors colluded in embezzlement in the T-50 and Surion projects. A second raid of KAI’s headquarters also occurred to get more evidence of suspected price manipulation.”

The developing story leaves Trump a narrow road to walk, delicately keeping up his outstanding work negotiating with North Korea and keeping those in the region appeased while fulfilling his promise to drain the swamp.

But we all know Trump is up to the task.
