Navy Jet Down

Um... this doesn't sound good at all. The aircraft they were in was an executive aircraft, something similar to a Cessna Mustang business jet. I don't think they can eject from those. I don't want to put a hex on the whole thing, but like I said, it doesn't sound good.

The T-39 is used to train NFO's for fleet a/c since they aren't the one's flying. No ejection system is provided (as previously mentioned).

I got a few hours in that a long, long time ago during NFO training. Very sad to loose one and crew.

Just wondering, did you guys where parachutes? I would assume no, but I've been wrong before.
