The F-4 Phantom II crashes into the ocean but the pilots eject to safety from the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga.

1980 aboard USS Saratoga (CV-60). VF-103 F-4 Phantom launching from the Port Bow Catapult when the bridle broke before the reached flying speed. Both the Pilot and RIO ejected and were safely recovered.

The first photo shows the moment when the bridle broke (note that the Phantom does have afterburners lit) and the second photo shows the  two parachutes over the pancaked Phantom.

Airplane Crashes are more common in the military than the media really knows. When a plane crashes away from any civilian areas, the news never knows about it. These planes are extremely complex, more so than civilian airplanes and they are pushed to limits beyond any civilian aircraft, plus they fly in conditions that no civilian aircraft will ever see.
