Description: Nighttime photo of mangled parts of a plane crash. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Twisted metal is all that's left of crashed Navy jet." By Jim Roger -- "A $3 million military jet plane with two Navy pilots aboard crashed in a pasture two miles west of Tinker Air Force Base in southeast Oklahoma City Friday night, a few seconds after the fliers parachuted to safety. The craft did not burn. The Navy F-4's pilot and co-pilot both escaped injury. Their cross-country training flight from Oceana Naval Air Station, near Virgina Beach, Va., ended less that 10 miles shy of a 1,200-mile non-stop trip. The pilot was identified as Lt. Cmdr. Michael J. Ettel, 33, of Oceana Air Station. Neither Officer was injured, but both were given emergency check-ups at Tinker Air Force Base Hospital. The twin-engine craft was believed to have run out of fuel. Authorities said the men radioed the Tinker control tower that they were abandoning the aircraft."

Description: A crowd gathers where a jet landed in fence near a road. Crash Crew and law enforcement are on site. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Jet Lands In Fence; Pilot Safe A Tulsa air national guard flier crashed his F-80 Shooting Star through the 6-foot fence bordering Tinker Air Force base Wednesday morning, but he suffered only minor injuries. Capt. J. H. Rodolf, member of the 125th fighter-interceptor squadron based at Tulsa municipal airport, was pulled from the cockpit and rushed to the Tinker hospital. He suffered only lacerations and bruises on his chest and neck, was kept at the hospital for further observation. The air guardsman was unconscious when the rescue squad arrived at the scene, but recovered by the time he was transferred to the ambulance. He said he could see his plane was "undershooting" the runway as he approached the base from the west. He pushed the throttle forward, he said, but the plane failed to respond. The fighter craft first hit the ground about 200 feet west of the base, lost a wing tank and bounced up. It came down again, lost the other wing tank, skidded across Air Depot road and plowed through a 6-foot steel fence. Dragging 12 posts of the fence from its nose, the plane kept sliding along the ground until it came to rest near a patrol road at the edge of the runway the flier was trying to make. Although fuel spilled on the ground, there was no fire. The accident occurred about 8 a.m."
