That fucking plane skidded the whole carrier. I bet you a hundred bucks that pilot was like, "fuuuuuuuckk, stop you son of a bitch!"
Isn't there supposed to be a hook and a cable or a net or SOMETHING? Or maybe the cable snapped, that's why he went sideways?
that had to suck!
Yeah he pissed himself for sure.
I just noticed the 'sploot' sound effect right at the end. That was cute.
there wasnt a cable because this video looks like Vietnam or Korea era.
Wicked m4, they had cables then. It looks like he hooked and the cable or the hook let loose otherwise he would not have gone sideways. I hope he made it.
Looks like he might have undershot a bit and lost the wheel against the edge of the deck.
yea that was definatly an old school vid
These early drifter drivers were so fucking cool! It´s a shame that they don´t do drifting exhibitions with military aircraft anymore. :-(
Real Old. 1st Clue - it's an F-11-F been out of service since just after Korea. 2nd Clue - No canted flight deck. They started adding those in the late 50's. There should have been a net. Arresting wires and nets came in before WWII.
It´s so fucking good to know we have so many g.d. experts in so many areas... We even have g.d. veterans! :P
damnnn I'm all of a sudden very very glad my husband isn't on a carrier...Thank God for P3's!!!
Please don't bad mouth the veterans
