KABC in Los Angeles just reported a crash 3 miles off of Ocean Beach, just off of Point Loma. It is a FA-18 and both pilots ejected and are apparently rescued by a fishing boat and are OK.

From what I've seen on the 'net, the a/c was an F-14.

Yeah, except for the training version the F-18 is single seat. No RIO.

Quite odd the spate of crashes huh? San Diego, TN and GA. What was the 4th one?

If I am correct, there was an F/A-18 crash near RDU, another off the coast of GA, near Savannah, an F-14 off the coast of CA, and the F/A-18 in TN.

Three miles off Pt. Loma is relatively shallow water. Recovery should be a piece of cake.

Someone got Video of it. I just watched it online. Apparently it was having engine trouble and was diverting to NASNI.

It was not an F/A-18. It was an F-14D from VF-31 based at Oceana, VA. They had engine problems and were trying to make it to NAS North Island and obviously didn't make it. Both crew ejected and are OK.

You guys were right. It's was an F-14 from VF-31 that crashed due to engine failure. I happen to hear the CO on the USS john c. stennis announce the crash while I was in the berthing sleeping, luckily no fatalities and luckily, it wasn't thee engine I was working on.

Looks like the Navy has taken the expense of recovering the aircraft for the accident investigation. It looks like the titanium boxbeams and wing tanks have held together.

Do you know the registration of it? I may have photographed it on the Stennis previous times.

Gocaps16:

Unfortunately the bureau number is not mentioned nor can you see it in the pictures. I'll bet that eventually it will appear on an F-14 website. Or maybe a naval aviation magazine like Wings of Gold or Approach.
