The E-2C plane almost crashed into the sea

On March 18, 2016, an E-2C Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft attempted to land on the US aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.

At that moment, the brake cable broke and the E-2C slid off the runway, heading into the sea.

The US Navy concluded that the incident occurred due to human error.

China almost lost the J-15 fighter ship

During a test of the braking ability on an aircraft carrier, a J-15 fighter ship of the Chinese naval air force was almost thrown off the runway when the cable broke, Sina reported in 2013.

The test was conducted on a simulation model of the deck of the Liaoning aircraft carrier.

The J-15 hit the first cable, but immediately the steel cable broke, hitting the plane’s tail.
