Trust me...a couple days of tagging along with the carrier and the crews on those FFGs are going to be looking for a change to strangle some airedales.
haha ok ok i'll change it out. u make a good point.

Great effort. Obviously we have a lot of purists in this community so you won't be shortchanged with feedback. I'm glad you're taking them constructively, that's the right attitude

At least you're putting a lot of effort in actually flying the plane and clocking some hours of mastering handling rather than say "this and that doesn't work" when they've obviously need to just put in the time to get better. Which you are doing. so Kudos mate!

ok, first off, way too much fuel to be landing, he'd need to circle for a while just to dump that fuel, no initial pass, no 180, no 90, no 45, entered goove way to high, AoA way too steep, complete disregard for the ball, and what looked like a hook slap at the end there.

but he's probably just learning. that was me a week ago. he'll learn.

That throttle reaction and how he's running the throttle in the RL footage though. The F404 feels like stone age tech compared to the +10 one

I completely agree. I may have poked fun at you, but it wasn't for your flying. You're pushing the edges and you deserve credit for that. I bet with a few more passes, you'll nail those Top Gun approaches.

No flaps, going to watch it again because I think without using flaps you probably have the wrong AoA.

After rewatching, you flared which isn't the normal way to land the F-18, it did give you I think about 12.0+ for AoA, you probably landed a bit fast. I know from my practice runs, with only sidewinders on the wingtips and about 2000lbs fuel, my on speed is around 128-134 area.

Needless to say, good job to everyone. I enjoy the videos and as long as people are enjoying the sim it all good Also if it wasn't for people trying new things, there wouldn't even be a case I recovery, a SH carrier landing, a carrier or an airplane for that matter, so push those boundaries. At least in a sim you can't die seeing if something will work.

Funny : I've found out through Carrier Landing Practises in my various sims, that this approach is the fastest method to get on deck quickly - without knowing anything like the creator of this post.


And it makes most fun!



But you've to be very careful with your endspeed. Because the Hornet is capable of bleeding energy very fast - and during lots of attempts to trap like this, I crashed into the aft - just my two cents of experience.


Big thanks to the maker of this post.
