Gads why did the Shipping company that had my stuff lose all my Super 8s. I had a ton of Carrier cats and traps from my seats on the EA-3B.

Factoid: I remember a briefing where we were told that a cat shot equated to us pulling 5-7 "transverse" G's (through the chest)for that couple of seconds it took to throw you off the pointy end.

If that wasn't enough, when the pilot returns to his airport he will have to find out where it went. USAF airports stay put.

What a rush! We could use a thrill ride like that at the state fair.

Note where the pilot's hand is during launch: He doesn't touch the stick till he's off the deck. The launch crew don't want him touching anything until he's on his own!!

Impressive! Used to prep the pre-flight briefings on the USS Intrepid (CVS11). Never got to experience a cat or trap, but I did hitch a chopper ride once in an SH-3 on guard duty, so I've watched this from aloft. Always cool. I'm curious about the F18's altitude by the video's end. Any pilots here care to estimate his angels?
