United States Navy CV-64

F-14A Tomcat


19th December 1981

USS Constellation
Pilot Cdr. W. H. "Bill" Switzer
RIO Lt.(jg) Dave Baranek


I was an F-14 RIO and ejected on 19 Dec 1981.  The 4-wire broke as we landed on USS Constellation.  Aircraft was an F-14A.  Pilot was Bill Switzer.
Photo showing the jet rolling off the flight deck with the wire still attached.  I think the sequence had started at this point.  We both got out okay.
What type of material are you looking for?
Good luck with your project! - Dave
