What Happens When a Pilot Misses the Landing on US Aircraft Carriers

Welcome back to the FLUCTUS channel for a discussion about the dangers of landing and taking off from Aircraft Carriers.

You haven’t lived life fully unless you’ve been on the flight deck during high tempo ops. I’m a USN/USMC flight test engineer and have done that. Been under a F/A-18 while it was on the cat in full burner getting ready to get shot off. We had equipment under the aircraft that had to have a final check just before a cat shot to ensure it was calibrated at the last possible moment. Under the aircraft when it’s ready to go the sound is a physical thing. You can feel it in your guts and bones. A cat shot is the ultimate rush! No roller coaster or anything can replicate that feeling. My job is to make sure the war fighter has the best tools in the world.
