    I used to tune to the frequencies during f-4 maneuvers, watching them
    rolling, climbing, pulling 5 g turns. All the while, talking as mundanely
    as if in their easy chair. They simply don’t rattle. Any trace of panic,
    replaced with procedure. I have to say tho, considering the technology
    available, I’d have expected worlds better video aboard our first nimitz
    class carrier.

    I was waiting with baited breath for the huge splash of water that was to
    come from the plane hitting the water. then lo and behold you see the plane
    rising up above the flightdeck! I bet that pilots balls where in his mouth,
    wow! that was some flying. thank God he kept the plane at full throttle
    like he was trained to do, or this could have turned into something very
    tragic. Hopefully nobody on the flightdeck for hurt when that arresting
    cable snapped and went flying back along the landing area! To bad there
    wasn’t any audio to go along with the video so we could here the reaction
    of the planes crew and the flight deck air boss!

    for something that happened on march 18, 2016 to look like this, they know
    they need to update the cameras

  17. Reeve Glisson says:

    That was the longest 4-5 seconds waiting to see if the plane was coming
    back up or not

    that was awesome but I do hope that nobody got seriously injured
