While climbing out from Kadena AB, Okinawa, the right engine exploded severing the hydraulic lines for the flight controls. Seeing the lowering hydraulic pressure the USAF PIlot: Lt. Col. Dan House headed for the nearest base, which was in the Phillipines, nearing the coast they lost all control of the SR and he and his RSO: Maj. Blair Bozek ejected safely landing just off the coast of the Phillipines. They were rescued by native fisherman shortly before US Rescue forces arrived. The SR was recovered after a lengthy salvage mission.
