Lost Brakes

On February 1991, the Grumman A‑6E Intruder Bureau Number 155602 lost its braking power after landing on the USS America. Just seconds later, pilot Lt. Commander J. “Mac” Williams and bombardier/navigator Lt. L. Fox both ejected before the aircraft nosed over the deck. Williams was reportedly hurt and broke his leg during landing.

And as for the A-6E Intruder, it did not completely go over so the deck crew were tasked to push it over the side so they could clear the deck.

A little bit about the Grumman A-6 Intruder. Introduced in 1963, it participated in the Vietnam War and the Gulf War.
