Planes launch and land aboard the super carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75), the 8th Nimitz class aircraft carrier of the U.S. Navy.

Nice!

Those arresting cables look INSANELY dangerous.

Looked to me like when the E-2 jumped it off the deck, he failed to shove it into overdrive.

Having spent most of my life on the Flight Deck of Carriers, I enjoyed the fact that I don't have to spend any more of my life on the deck of Carriers. CVA 62, CVA (N) 65, CVA 31 CVA 64, with short trips on CVA 11, CVA 33, CVA 63 and CVA 61.

Great Vid.

Great video. US Naval aviators are the hands down the best and bravest pilots on the planet. Night traps on a pitching deck takes balls of steel.

Didn't notice one pilot salute before being catapulted.

Maverick always did!

Impressive, but aren't the carriers obsolete today due to the advent of anti-ship ICBMs?

Same situation as with the battleships just prior to Pearl Harbor because of carrier aviation.

Why would you think that? I mean it's pretty nice to be able to have a mobile air base.

Well, if the Chinese can reliably sink a carrier 1500 miles away using a steerable, stealthy, anti-ship ballistic missile warhead that we have no defense for, then aren't we relying on obsolete technology?

Does the Navy have a countermeasure on the horizon? A Laser of some sort maybe?

My brother was a passenger on a plane that did that a few years ago. The pilot bolted back into the air, came around and landed successfully.

My brother was awarded a giant brass bolt by the carrier strike group commander (an admiral) for being the last person to have bolted from landing on that carrier. (Because he sat behind the pilot.)

Being an adrenaline junkie, my brother said he just laughed. No underwear change was required.

I see that the rudders on the F-18's are both pointed inward, can somebody explain this to me ?

wow that brings back memories, i was stationed on that boat around 2002-2005. kind of miss it but dont miss the fod walks or the sweeper calls.

and the rudders are like that because of the angles they have when turn inward at take off they add to the lift by changing the angle of attack on the wings slightly. it pushes down the tail and up on the nose to give a better angle for creating lift.

Thanks for that, I am curious on how they are coupled. Stand on each rudder pedal at the same time or something similar ?

Marine Corps just upgraded both to new models. Apache isn't marinized, so you need something else if you want an attack helicopter on a boat.

I think the Air Force still operates some old Hueys for flying around between missile silos.

I am so glad we have guys like this.

But these videos do not excite me. I just don't get watching stuff on film.

That goes for NASCAR, Golf, Boxing, Baseball and First person war footage.

I'm weird though.

The CDF (California Department of Forestry) has a Huey they fly regularly and you can hear it coming for miles (5 mins or so before you see it). Love the thump it makes. One day golfing years ago there was a hillside fire by the course and it dipped a bucket in the hazard like 50 feet away, it was awesome. Sorry, no pics, that was before cellphones were common.
