    I doubt that very much. There is no way that a pilot would be hovering just off a beach with the low fuel light on.

    There are way too many things that could have happened to even start to speculate about why that happened.

    There has got to be an accident report somewhere on that. You can google up all the USAF crashes and find out what happened.
