The pilot, Major David G. Haar, ejected safely at 1,700 feet over the Atlantic one mile off the coast of Brigantine, New Jersey. The aircraft had engine problems at 15:40 hours, while on a flight of four aircraft. The pilot was picked up by a police boat and transferred to a Coast Guard ship. At 16,000 feet the pilot felt vibrations and immediate deceleration. The cause was a failure and subsequent liberation of a turbine blade from the 3rd stage of the turbine section resulting in damage to the oil system.
