Default Naval Aviation At It's Most Dangerous, Amazing video..

This is very unnerving, landing with deck pitching 30 feet, at night, low on fuel.



Incredible. You will never forget viewing this. I have seen a lot of aviation emails but the two videos below are undoubtedly the best.

Turn on your sound and go full screen.

I guarantee this will definitely hold your attention.
These videos show the difference between Naval Aviation and any other kind. The links below are two outstanding videos about F-18 carrier operations aboard the USS Nimitz during weather that causes a severely pitching deck, which you can see in the videos. It's more dangerous than most combat missions and the tension in the pilots and crew is very apparent. Watch Part 1 first, then Part 2. Great videos.

And that is why I went to business school. No way I'd do that. I have the utmost respect for those guys abilities.

Nerves of steel!!

I was white knuckling my recliner just watching those 2 videos! I really wish they would quit bleeping out the language though, it's not like the young people haven't already heard those words and it is part of the overall tension of those guys trying to park their ride on a roller coaster driveway.

Would I do it, ........... yeah, 40 years ago I would have flown off that carrier in a heart beat! Now, at 68, it scares the bejeebers out of me just watching videos like those!
