Makes it more sad to have heard the final words.
1995 - exercise in pacific ocean:- OH f**k, flame out on port, ejecting.
Pilot recover - broken neck, died on impact with ocean
1999 - East Timor - SH-70B Seahawk - from pilot - fire in aft cabin, senso attacking, lots of smoke, request free deck. pilot landed A/C on a FFG
with 15% vis in the cabin and the sun setting.
