    I was sitting on the potty reading a Tailhook magazine from 2002, true story. :c

    It had a story about an EA-6B landing aboard USS Enterprise in 1998 (at night) and on deck was an S-3 Viking that had landed just seconds before.

    The S-3 was unable to move because the deck side was crowded at the moment, thus causing a "Foul Deck" and the EA-6B should have been waved off to go around.

    It wasn't and the EA-6B pilot could not see the S-3 until it was too late........:facepalm:

    Many people on the deck should have and did have a chance to prevent this but they all got distracted by something else and death came to the ship that night.

    U can see a flashing F during the video which indicates even the computer realized "foul deck" but the dum humans didn't pay attention....

    At night.

    Pitch black but for little tiny lights bobbing up and down in the darkness of the sea.

    No.

    This was not the pilots fault.

    At all.

    :umm:.......

    All 4 in the EA-6B.

    The 2 in the S-3 ejected and were saved.

    I don't think anybody onboard was killed.

    I think.

    :vyb:.........


    [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]Much to the surprise of the ship's crew, one of the ejected Viking crewmembers was quickly found, entangled by his parachute in the antennae complex of the carrier's command island, the other crewman was found in the cold, choppy seas, and was quickly rescued. Both were rushed to the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Virginia, and the wreckage of their Viking was jettisoned overboard.[/FONT]


    Losses...



    The crew of the Prowler, however, was less fortunate. All four aboard - Lieutenant Commander Kurt W. Barich, 35, of Oak Harbour, Washington, and Lieutenants – Junior Grade Brendan J. Duffy, 27, of Annapolis, Maryland; Charles E. Woodward, 26, of Herndon, Virginia; and Meredith C. Loughran, 26, of Sanston, Virginia; were all lost overboard. In the search, the body of LtJG Duffy was found that night.



    But even with the assistance of two other Navy ships operating near the Enterprise, the destroyer USS Gonzalez and the frigate USS Nicholas, in the search, along with HH-60 helicopters from Antisubmarine Squadron 7 based in Jacksonville, the remaining three were not found. After covering more than 100 square nautical miles on the water, and 700 nautical miles in the air, the search was suspended after 24 hours. The three missing were presumed dead in the 58 degrees waters.
