The picture gallery below shows the sequence of events that led to the loss of Buccaneer 107.  

After take off the pilot reported some type of problem, to flight control.  In these pictures,  the navigator ejects, followed by the pilot.  The plane flies around and around and around for some 15 or more minutes.  At one stage it turned towards the ship and hundreds of guys suddenly disappear from the various viewing points.  Eventually one of the  is sent up to keep an eye on the Buccaneer in case it becomes dangerous to the ship and needs to be shot down.  After what seemed like ages, 107 finally splashed down in the sea and finally settled before sinking.
