1960's US Aircraft Carrier Landing Takeoff F-8 Demon, Phantom, Skyhawk Mishaps

Why landing operations are much more dangerous than land based operations, and accidents can take their toll even during peacetime. Looks like a lot of these pilots did not make it.

Footage of carrier mishaps from the 1960s. F-4s, A-4s, F-8s featured. From the archives of the San Diego Air and Space Museum
