    Didn't have a date or location on this one. Should be easy enough to research. Obviously a lost A/C.

    I remember being at an air show at El Toro Marine base (located in South Orange County California) back in the late 80's or early 90's (can't remember exactly), when a Navy F-14 Tomcat crashed. I saw the whole thing.

    i'd bet that plane droped strat down like that, and just couldent nose up.



    saw the vid of an air show with two migs flying around and they were supost to cross and the one lost visual in the clouds and flew right though his buddys plane, he ejected from the half the cockpit was in right befor it blew and the other guy punched out after safely aiming his plane for a ditch.

    In the picture, that is the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. That's a bad day for a pilot...

    Yeah i think you're right actually. I was just looking at the photo again and there is a lot of vapour from the leading edges as if he is pulling a tight turn rather than about to drop into the sea.

    But like you say....way cool shot!!!

    The second pic of the Tomcat was a flyby and I believe the pilot was grouded for 30 days after it too, but awesome picture.

    cool vids.

    most surprising is the calmness, guy on the mic wasent freeking at all, just doing his job.


    and the pilot cam, just by watching that you wouldent know something was wrong untill he punched it, didevery thing he could then got the hell out!!!




    thanks for the links
