AC-130J Ghostrider Damaged in Flight Test

$115 million heavy airplane damaged beyond repair.

The Air Force Materiel Command has publicly admitted to a mishap in which an Air Force test pilot crew got the ride of their life in April of this year. An AC-130J Ghostrider, an airplane weighing as much as 164,000 pounds, went inverted during a test flight and was severely damaged, a mistake that is costing taxpayers $115 million.
 
The Ghostrider belonged to the 413 Flight Test Squadron at the Eglin Air Force Base in northwest Florida.
