“While flying a DACM sortie against a Navy F-14, we experienced a compressor stall-induced double flameout. A subsequent failure prevented the emergency generator deployment and with no way to air start the engines we were forced to eject passing 10,000’ at around 220 knots.
Lots of cheers from both of us after our chutes opened in a flawless dual sequenced ejection. The U.S. Coast Guard (bless them!) fished us out of the Atlantic within 40 minutes. My RIO was Captain Richard A. Cote, USMC and we’re both satisfied customers!”
