    This pilot should be bumped up in rank

    That was some serious pucker factor!

    I'm not an aviator of any measurement but I'm sure, that landing procedure include possibility of that. I think pilot must have his hand on accelerator during landing just because of that. This guy earned his pay for that month

      True. They all go full throttle when hooking the arresting cable.

        Damn, that pilot knows his stuff. This happened on my grandfathers carrier in the Korean War...except the guy went into shock and slowly sank. He said the pilot didn't eject, didn't get out, he just sat there.

              Think he earned about 175 lifetimes of salary on that one. Hawkeyes are going for $175000000 each.

                Yes they go full throttle but that arresting cable took all his speed before breaking.

                  Which makes the pilot's recovery of the plane even more remarkable!

                    Lol, I've seen worse. While with VAW-120 and 110 we would go on what we called DET (detachment). I was a trouble shooter and then a final Checker. The new E-2C Hawkeyes and C-2 Greyhound pilots would land the craziest way. They trained mostly on a simulator and then did a lot of shore flying before going on a flattop. That was when the props had four blades. Lol

                        It was definitely an OHH Shit! FULL throttle, flaps down! OH GOD HELP US!!! I'm wondering if it had the full crew or pilot and copilot. It was from VAW-123 ScrewTops.

                          VAW 117
                          '80 - '83
                          USS Ranger, '80 - '81
                          USS Enterprise, '82 - '83

                          For those not in the know, the pilots are trained for this as well as the flight deck crew are taught to stay well clear of the foul line.

                          It happens. Although I'm sure there is a sufficient pucker factor.

                          I deck launched in a C1 once. They sunk below the flight deck level when they did that. It is an odd feeling.

                            Paul your nuts. I would never get in a C1. Those bubble head looking airplanes were scary. VRC40 was in the back of our hanger. I would hang out with some Buddies working in those Turboprops. Scary!!! Lol
                            i did hitch a ride on a C2 and that was butt puckering!!!

                              Rule # 1. Keep flying the airplane.
