    Awesome. Is it any wonder that those pilots are known as Naval Aviators? The title is a well-deserved one - It takes a special breed of pilot to land a 20-ton airplane at 100+ knots on the pitching deck of an aircraft carrier, both day and night, rain or shine. The video just shows an easy day at the office- calm seas and unlimited visibility. Thanks for posting.

    Great video. Navy pilots are truly a special breed. Like CBI wrote: I am definitely not worthy of wearing a flight jacket!

    I remember when my brother started his carrier simulator training. He told me about how many guys threw up doing that! I can't imagine this. Awesome stuff.

    Bah, I used to do that all the time-on Combat Flight Simulator. Wasn’t easy on that either!
