Goodness gracious, great balls of lightning!
A couple of days ago, a C-130 crashed in Georgia. All 9 people on board were killed.

An F-16 crashes while trying to land, pilot made it out okay thankfully.

F-16 pilot is killed in a crash at Nellis Air Force base

Apache helicopter crashes while training, both pilots were killed.

4 marines were killed when their Super Stallion crashed.
https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2018/04/05/marines-identify-4-killed-in-ch-53e-crash/

These are just some examples as to what's been going on recently. There have been way more accidents of all branches of the military. According to this article, accidents have risen 40% since 2013.

I'm not exactly sure how often accidents like this happen, but to me, it's been happening way more than I remember. It feels like every other day I log on and another one has been reported.

Who or what is to blame for these? Are they all caused by human error, budget cuts, or something else?

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
>budget cuts
Really? Is 700billion not enough?

If it's not human error, can we really call them accidents? I don't think anything major is happening, otherwise big news sources would've picked up the fact; I have CNN playing 24/7 and I never knew about the increase until your thread.

ayy lmao
I ready somewhere recently that it's mainly because the equipment they use to train is getting older, leading to more equipment failure and so more accidents.

Can't find the link, but it's definitely plausible.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Older airframes and avionics packages combined with maintenance schedules that aren't being increased.  We're entering that sort of period for a majority of our commonly fielded aircraft's life.

It's more because it's the only TV I can stream online at any given time. Also I do enjoy Anthony Bourdain's show on Saturdays.

My little brother is currently training on jet fighters at topgun so you Americans better take care of that equipment so that nothing happens to him.

When you put a clown in office that only inbred rednecks support, you'll obviously find that his brain damaged supporters hurt themselves when handling military equipment. It's for the best that these mongoloids die. The less republicans, the better.

Not new at all. I just check this site every few months because it's always dead.  Case in point: it's been taken over by redneck republifats

There are still good people in the Republican party. That's the difference.
