I tell you what, carrier ops were a blast! I am really looking forward to the improvements and the upcoming F-18 and F-14!
It was great to see so many people pass through @near_blind
’s server last night!
had a go … tough from the seat of his Mirage. He made a nice approach and touchdown but was able to bolter off the front and take advantage of the sky-jump
I still think that the Mirage is a beautiful module!
Approach and landing on the carrier was a challenge and although there were a number of bolters, very few ended up wrecking their rides on the deck.
and I all getting ready to go again
Second favorite was tanking. Getting feet dry with a useful load required cutting back on the fuel. Luckily there was a tanker in theatre, providing the second challenge of the evening.
The tanker crew spent a lot
of time in a turn, making the tanking experience a little frustrating at times
And, of course, we all had to keep trying to get back aboard.
Great to see everyone taking part!
