I called a friend who was watching the jets before all this happened. "One of the engines went out first, the jet started fishtailing , then the pilot ejected... in that order."

The friend .. an "FAA" employee was watching the jets before all this occured"..

He punched out after @2000 feet of roll and was probably near 100 knots ground speed. After he ejected the hornet continued down the runway several thousand feet before vering off through a taxiway and toward the gate before stopping.
