I am trying to remember I think it was in either 78 or 79 an air force or Navy pilot ejected into SF bay, he had aimed his plane over into the ocean and punched out.<quoted text>
I've spent time on Yerba Buena Island with it's spectacular SF city views but as a government geologist, not a squid.
Although I did pass through the T.I. brig for a few intense days in 1969! F**^%!@# Jarheads! "maggot this and maggot that". What jackasses!
I didnít see the even and I was not on the boat, but I was on the dock when they brought him in, he was astounded that we had boats in the water near him before he hit the water.
Funniest evening I ever spent on Yerba Buena was after that sailboat incident, I was guarding the armory with an M16 and inside were over 300 bales of marijuana ( the Oakland police were not prepared to receive it yet and asked us to keep it under guard until they sent trucks to collect it )
There was marijuana that had spilled out over the corridors, while they were bringing them in, we didnít have any problems finding a few that wanted to help clean it up LOL!
