The 4 crew were picked up by a Seahawk from a US destroyer.
Apparently the B1B was on its way from a strike when they had multiple malfunctions which resulted in the pilot wanting to eject the crew at 15,000ft.

On another note..

Yesterday i was listening to HF Global when a B-52H came up saying a crew member was taken ill and collapsed(possibly) They phone patched to Minot AFB (RAYMOND 12) and talked to a doctor on what to do, apparently kidney trouble...
They were in contact with Raymond 12, Diego Garcia and McGuire.
The aircraft was 7hrs out from the British base of Diego Garcia at the time.
