Sean,
Correct: AIM9 Sidewinder.

The pics are probably slides taken from film loops.

Sidewinder: You can almost see the guy on the deck crapping his pants!! I bet he took off so fast, he left skidmarks on the deck!

the forklift accident looks like a drop tank, so the only thing that could go off is the guys boss. as for the sidewinder that is why the carriers have angled decks , so when the plane misses the wire or forward firing weapons inadvertantly release they go off the ship. that is a old pic as well it is used on a safety poster in my squadrons ordannace shop.
