    1. Adrienne, You could always be a Top Fuel Dragster driver. 0-300 in 4 seconds. :-)

      Stay away from the Funny Cars though. Too much fire.

    2. I added a night carrier landing A, if you didn't see it.

  2. If anyone ever wonders why Navy/Marine Corps fighter pilots seem so damn arrogant, it is because it takes a supreme level of confidence to land an aircraft on the deck of a carrier, in a pitching sea, in the dead of night. It is a pucker-factor, and yet these men and women do this sort of thing every day and every night. They do it by controlling their fears and apprehensions and “just get on with it.” Thanks for the videos, Kid ...

    1. I've done that too DaBlade. I'm good at backing in though, usually one attempt is all that is required - straight in or parallel.

    2. The last time I had to parallel park was when I passed my driver's test 56 years ago. I'm out of practice.
