1955 ramp strike aboard USS Hancock. F7U pilot LCDR Jay Alkire of VF-124 lost his life in this crash. He was stunned and badly injured from the impact, when the aircraft fell off the port side of the USS Hancock and rapidly sank with Alkire still strapped in his ejection seat. Along with Alkire, two aviation boatswain's mates and one of the photographer's mates recording the accident was also killed by burning jet fuel in the deckside walkway. We hope "Paddles" escaped. You can see him running out of the path of the Cutlass in the three-photo series beginning at the upper right. If you watch the video below you'll probably learn the answer.
