F-14 Tomcats make quite a bit of noise when in flight. In fact, the people on board the yacht could hear them coming from quite a ways off when they made their initial I.D. pass. Later on, the people on the yacht can hear the Japanese Zeros approaching as well, even though these airplanes are much quieter than a jet fighter would be. The zeros strafe the yacht, come around again and strafe the people in the water, killing one of them. The F-14s were circling low and slow enough to witness all of this and report back to the Nimitz that they could see "3 Mae Wests" in the water, yet neither of the Japanese pilots noticed two other aircraft up there with them, and no one on the yacht was able to see or hear the F-14s until they do another fly over in pursuit of the Zeros.
