Re: Navy Carrier Landing question

    Re: Navy Carrier Landing question

    I agree with what "paddles" had to say and add that I also have completed 300+ carrier landings.

    I'd add that the "crab" factor is negligible and likely inaccurate since the wind direction is typically aligned with the angle deck by the direction the ship is moving.

    Hook bounce is controlled by hook snubbers which, for the most part, keep the hook on the deck.  There is no reason to expect that having a hook skip the #3 wire will cause it to also skip #4.

    Hope this adds something to your information database.
