Something ejects out the back of the plane before it noses over. Looks like an engine.

Note to self: Don't forget to tighten the motor mounts.

External fuel tank - you can see fuel sprayin' all over the place as it falls.

Bet hittin' the water like that left a mark...........

They probably had the right engine flame out on takeoff, dumped the external tank said, "Oh shyt" and them punched out. Hope they got far enough over to avoid getting sucked into the ship's propellers.

Looks like the 8-track the Bombardier-Navigator took with him got stuck between the throttle and the firewall.

That's an A-6, so the vid is at least a decade old.

Probably lost one engine, and took off heavy. Never had the airspeed he needed. Looks like both of the crew hit the silk in time.
