Landing on a carrier was 'splained to me once like this.

Clear the furniture our of your living room
Put a postage stamp in the middle of the floor
Run down the hallway, leap into the air when you reach the living room, and try to lick the stamp.

Night carrier landing ....same as above, only turn off all the lights :)

Wow that is crazy!!! You have got to have perfect timing there, throttle up, then down after you know you got a cable so you dont break the cable. Navy pilots have great skill.

Don't call them "pilots", call them "Naval Aviators". And yes, they do have great skill. If you don't know that when you meet one, they will be sure you do before that first meeting is over. :whistle:
