looks like u got owned: by the last comment in this youtube vid...

Do any of you guys bother to read any of the other comments before making smart-ass remarks like this?

1. The F-14 in the video did NOT...I repeat...did NOT break the sound barrier. The explosion was due to compressor stall, which the TF-30 in the F-14A was notorious for.

2. You can clearly hear one of the people on deck screaming "TWO PARACHUTES!!! TWO PARACHUTES!!!"

3. Both the pilot and RIO ejected safely and both were rescued. They both suffered minor to moderate injuries.

did you see the condensation cone form around the plane as it crossed along starboard side?

yeah i saw it, but apparently, the last poster had something else to say :dontknow:

i was thinking maybe he was right and the cone was caused by something else

those cones occur when the pressure drops very low and the air cannot hold anymore water vapor. apparently, those cones normally occur when the plane reaches a certain speed, in this case, breaking the sound barrier.

fury will be in here soon to give us more info.

Loss of tail rotor effectiveness on that last one. More power was required than what was available. He was either too heavy, landing with a tail wind, shot a bad approach requiring a rapid stop in descent or something to that effect. You only have a split second to react to get out of that. Once that tail whips around on you though your fucked. Only way out is to decrease power, which goes against everything your feeling and go forward on the cyclic to get airspeed and fly out of it. (What all that means is start the waveoff early).
