    NO! I refuse to play. Well, okay, maybe later. Is it as addicting as the helo?

    EDIT: Okay, not a game. Sorry. I just remember trying to fly that helo at 2am. Cool video. Those pilots are amazing.

            Now we can all say we were on a fighter that landed on a carrier....

            Good find, AZ (as usual)

              very cool.
              Bad weather nighttime warzone lightsout deck landing in a fighter jet after a 10 hour mission, that is the toughest job in the world.

                Can't say I ever been in a plane that landed on a carrier. Jumped out of land based C-130's and C-17's, but nothing like that. Precision precision precision is wht you navy pilots are all about . That was great to watch... What tether did he hit? isn't the third one the preferred landing tether? (is it called a tether?)

                Anyways. Great to watch.... Thanks az

                  Dang I wanna play a game that can do that!

                  But what strikes me odd is that the plane doesn't seem like a jet, there was no safety net, and he touched down too late. He had touched down at like, 1/3rd to half way down the carrier...

                  But nice find!

                    its better watching it in person on board the aircraft carrier. i went via uh-60 to the uss lincoln during transit from tokyo to hawaii. lets say it was the coolest thing i ever saw! F/A-18 taking off is just somethin else hearing it and seeing it just rocks you. it gets old to the carrier guy though because they see it every day underway.

                      It was an EA-6b Prowler from the look of the pilots window and engine sound, Simmilar to the one President Bush used on that carrier trip one time.

                      As you can see there the trapping wires are quite a way down the deck so I am guessing he got the 2 or 3. And there are no safety nets. theres a catch net off the edge of the deck but that it.
                      The plane thats in the video is probably simmilar to the one thats justs to the left of the bottom left corner of the square of people. sitting on that light grey rectangle.
