1974 hss-2 61-012 US 148034 : I was with RVAH-13, Reconnaissance Attack Squadron Thirteen (Heavy) "Bats", flying RA-5C Vigilante ... and as I remember it, I was coming onto the flight deck to install a component into the jet, and I looked up and behind me as the HC was coming to land, and then noticed the SAM heading for the destroyer and I said 'oh shit' several times. The HC seemed to go full throttle and lifted and the SAM caught onto the heat signature from the HC and went directly into her and she exploded. I dove into the catwalk and saw the HC nearing the water below and it exploded again. I then picked up the tossed equipment and continued to the vigilante to install it. I was numb and in shock from the incident ... and am still dealing with it to this day ...
