Say, Is this the plane that crashed last year? I seem to remember posting a story about the mishap. well I do not have time to find it now.
By the way I've seen 4 crashes on the flight deck in person.
1.) F-8U Crusader carshed on landing on the USS Hancock Feb.'75
2.) Tomcat crashed on the flight deck on the USS America in 1981..probably in July..
3.) Intruder crash on launch off the Nimitz in April '91
4.) Tomcat crash on landing on the Nimitz in probably June '91.
No deaths in any of the crashes....
I have been on ships and shore when there were other crashes but did not witness them.
