13.01.1995: crashed after mid-air collision with BuNo 164340 (VF-31, NK200) south of San Diego: A section of F-14Ds was on a "photoex," taking pictures of each other. A goal was to photograph the underside of a fully loaded Tomcat in vertical flight. The aircraft maneuvered in close formation and entered vertical flight with a 3.5 to 4.0 G pull. While the lead F-14 maintained a steady pull, the wingman maneuvered to take the photo. In vertical disposition, the lead F-14 rolled 90 degrees with the wingmand close aboard. Then, the formation pulled into a loop culminated by a vertical fan break with 90 degrees difference in heading at the maneuver exit. Following this successful maneuver, the flight made a second attempt. But this time the leader pulled up with only 3.0 to 3.5 Gs. This resulted in a slower airspeed at the top, which created a proverse yawing tendency. The wingman had maneuvered inside and under the leader, who executed an oblique pull over the top, aggravated by the proverse yaw. This shifted his aircraft right into the wingmans's. A catastrophic collision occured with the lead F-14 inverted and 40 degrees out of the vertical. Both aircraft became uncontrollable after impact. All four crew members ejected successfully.
159636 F-14A VF-211 NG112 crashed 25.11.1978 off the coast of Pusan, Korea.
