Why Naval Aviators are the best trained pilots in the world!
You can turn on your sound and go full screen.

These videos show the difference between Naval Aviation and any other kind. The links below are two videos about F-18 carrier operations aboard the USS Nimitz during weather that causes a severely pitching deck, which you can see in the videos. It's more dangerous than most combat missions and the tension in the pilots and crew is very apparent.

Watch Part 1 first, then Part 2. Great videos.

I like the STP sticker in the first vid at 6:41

"IF YOU DON'T HAVE JET FUEL...ALL YOU HAVE IS GAS"

Thank you to ALL of our troops.

I never thought about that type of condition naval pilots have to face! Definitely can see how it can play tricks on your ability to land.
