An Airbus A380 took a 'nosedive' over the Pacific after flying through turbulence caused by another A380

The 'another A380' was flying 1,000 feet higher, and twenty-three miles ahead of the first one.

Just means the turbulent vortexes had to persist for two to three minutes.. not *that* long to dissipate.

A Bombardier Challenger 604 had an encounter with A380 wake turbulence over the Arabian Sea which nearly ended in disaster.

The pilots told accident investigators how they lost control of the aircraft in a wake turbulence encounter that caused the CL604 to drop 9,000 ft and roll through “several rotations.”

The pilots of a Bombardier Challenger 604 have told accident investigators how they lost control of the aircraft in a January encounter with wake turbulence from an Airbus 380 that caused the CL604 to drop 9,000 ft and roll through “several rotations,” according to an interim report from the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation.

The report said the temporary loss of control occurred about one minute after the A380 passed overhead, headed in the opposite direction, about 1,000 ft above the CL604, in Indian airspace over the Arabian Sea.

As the CL604 rolled left, its autopilot and a number of instruments and cockpit displays failed, including the inertial reference systems, the flight management system and the attitude indication, the report said.

The pilot-in-command told accident investigators that, “since the sky had been blue and the ocean’s surface almost the same colour, he had been able to recognize the aircraft’s flight attitude with the help of the clouds,” the report said.

The airplane experienced “large control surface deflections and acceleration,” and its left engine had to be shut off because of increases in the inter-stage turbine temperature, the report said.
A Bombardier Challenger 604 business jet had an encounter with A380 wake turbulence over the Arabian Sea which nearly ended in disaster.
The crew told air traffic control in Mumbai about the occurrence and declared an emergency, then restarted the left engine and diverted the flight to Muscat International Airport in Oman.

The CL604 was headed from Malé, Maldive Islands, to Al-Bateen, United Arab Emirates, with three crewmembers and six passengers; two passengers were seriously injured, and two other passengers and a flight attendant received minor injuries. The report characterized the airplane as substantially damaged, and added that Bombardier had said that the airframe “could not be restored to an airworthy state.”

The A380 was en route from Dubai to Sydney, Australia.

Investigation of the event is continuing.

I was talking to Dad about that incident earlier and he asked exactly the same question.

I didn't have an answer other than to say that the lawyers were circling.

It would take more than wake turbulence from an A380 to knock that lot out of the sky.

Aircraft enthusiasts enjoyed a treat yesterday as the US air force carried out low-flying training using F-15 jets in the Mach Loop valleys in Wales.
The valleys, between Dolgellau and Machynlleth are regularly used for military training. The F-15 is the primary fighter jet of the US Air Force.

Look at all those practice targets for ground support practice.

The 'practice targets' are occasionally rewarded with humour:

That's a Jaguar ground attack aircraft. I thought it was an RAF example at first, but closer inspection reveals French Air Force roundels.
So that's OK.
