The pilot of the Tomcat was Dale "Snort" Snodgrass.
Also plane captains wear Brown not white.

I'm surprised the A7 pilot did not just punch the canopy and swim out (they taught us in Pensacola to do this through use of dunkers,etc) instead of risking an ejection under water like that. I can only imagine the pain he was in.
I was fortunant to get through my 5 years in the Navy without having to eject, but I've known people who have and it isn't a nice experience. You are almost guarrenteed serious injury, but it's better than the alternative of course. One of my instructors broke his back in 3 places during an ejection which he was the only one out of a 4 man crew to survive. He was just within the envelope and was skipped across the water. The other three died on impact.

This was taken at NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia during one of the annual Neptune Festival Air Shows. It's a VF-101 "Grim Reapers" F-14. One of the better air shows on the east coast, by the way.

It's coming up in September.
