Thanks Rob! I assure you, it was some powerful editing....lol. To get the spawn from a "hot" parking spot on the Stennis, I had to adjust the "Carrier Take-off" mission (adding all my junk), spawn in, launch, punch off all the stores, whiffordil around quickly, trap, and taxi to where the movie would begin. To make it a dawn launch, I had to do the first launch in the (almost) dark, and I'm here to tell ya...trapping that big, bad, mama-jama in the sunshine, and doing in the dark are TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT worlds! Took me a few tries in the dark, but I finally got it aboard...lol.

And (of course) the dickheads in the S3 Viking would never roll wings level enough to make that "probe/basket" thing go easy...jackwads. As you can see, the first attempt was "a swing and a miss", but it eventually got better... I will say that I feel that I AM getting better as just getting her back on the boat (in the sunshine), that whole "don't spot the deck" thing really is the key. Watch the ball, watch the line up, watch the AOA (in your peripheral vision), and it's just slightly terrifying. Can't wait to try it at night, in the rain, pitching deck, and low on fuel..."we HAVE to land now Cougar...we are WAY LOW on gas...!" Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Again thanks Rob...was fun to make...hope you enjoyed it.

LMAO!

Yeah, I didn't see that moron parked on my "runway" until late into the approach. I was like..."WTF???" Probably should've done the right thing and bolter, but I was too far into the movie, etc and just said "F*ck it, if I miss the wires, hit the damn thing and blow up...so be it! Will be a cool end to the movie!"
