    Looks like the pilot(s) bailed at the right time.

    It must be a weird thought process that goes through a person's head. If I hold on for a few more seconds I might be able to recover this, but I might die. On the other hand, the second I pull this handle for the ejection seat it'll cost $1.4 billion dollars, but I'll live.

    "At Guam Naval Hospital, one pilot was evaluated and released, and the second was hospitalized."

    Glad the pilots survived, and also that it was not attributable to pilot error.

    The US government doesn't sweat for the lost money, it's the American people hard earning tax money.
