Fly-By Explosion

A September 21, 1995 video of a F-14 fly-by that goes wrong. The aircraft nearly breaks the sound barrier (you can see the mist forming), then explodes because of what was apparently an engine compression failure. The two pilots, from VF-213 (Black Lions) ejected successfully. The carrier battlegroup, with the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), was 1,400 kilomters west of Guam at the time.
