    Awesome. There’s only a cool billion dollars worth of aircraft lining each side of the runway, no pressure bro!

    The last “yellow shirt” in the video is either a woman or the most openly gay sailor in the US Navy.

      HA! Was it the hand motions or did their stance and the end really sell it?

      Absolutely female.

      She is a woman. And tougher than you will ever be.

    That’s a really small airfield. And it’s moving!

    Ahhh, the memories. Did this hundreds of times between 1958 and 1980 off of carriers that are either museums or history. And yes, my “call sign” was Meathead

    You should be on the deck instead of in the cockpit and you would realize just how noisy it really is. Waaay too noisy to take a nap.
