After the debrief , I found out I had shut down with 2,100 pounds of fuel remaining - not bad for a shore-based flight.
I raised these points during our debrief , and we discussed them at length.
In our debrief , we discussed crew coordination and the process of deciding to eject.
It was not until after a thorough debrief , and after I had a chance to sit down and think about what actually happened, that I realized how close I had come to starring in a Class-A mishap.
The crew debrief brought out some interesting points.
In the debrief , I asked the crew of the lead jet if they had the same problem at the same time, and they said ‘yes.’
Once I closed and locked the door, the ensuing debrief lasted for 2 hours - which is pretty amazing, considering we only flew one full-up engagement.
During the flight debrief , the instructor and I identified the following contributing factors to the near-mishap.
Midway through the debrief , we were notified the aircraft battery had gone into a thermal-runaway condition, which is very bad.
At the debrief , I felt good about how the mission unfolded, except for when we first established comms with the beach.
