Excellent video, you can even see the bridle get pulled back after each launch.


Man this is better than looked at naked ladies and beer.

I was in VT-4 (Carrier Qual and GunnerySqd.)in Pensacola in early 1970.

The Lexington was in for refit.

Each carrier going or coming from WesPac had to pull a tour in the Gulf of Mexico to carrier qual new pilots.

I got my first carrier quals aboard the Oriskany in the T-2b.

Thanks for some great memories! :salute:
