What do you think?
It's a good one, maybe a little bit slow on break for my taste, I prefer close to 400, and 1.2NM break is kinda too forgiving, but great for beginners.

Someone here wrote that no self respecting pilot would fly a break with speed brake open, I believe that's a bs. It's a tool, use it.

That was C.W. Lemoine, and you have to bear in mind he mostly flew T-38s and F-16s. The Air Force break is an overall tamer maneuver than the carrier break. You enter at 300, roll, and pull while keeping the throttles where they are, using only G to bleed airspeed below 240-250 to drop the gear.

My downwind is 250kts, I lower gear and flaps in the final break, when over 220kts trim whilst banking, on speed, level out ~170kts in the groove < 1nm from stern, because it can.

he flew hornets too though, and I've heard that from other hornet guys as well. And then of course if they fly rhinos, its out of their hands anyway.
