Welcome back to the our channel for a discussion about some major event aboard U.S. aircraft carriers and what it takes to prevent future losses. The test of arresting gear does not involve 'hooks', those 'pushing sticks'. I don't know what the navy calls them either; anyway, they are used only when re-setting the arrester cable. If you care to watch, as I did, you will see that they are utilised to push the connection blocks over any other arrester cables to avoid snagging. My other point is; When landing on a carrier, the plane goes to full throttle as they touch down in the case of, oh yes, the wire snapping and the need to get back in the air. Why are they going into detail about the Nimitz class aircraft carriers, when before you know it we're going to have aircraft carriers that don't use catapults run by steam anymore. As shown in the new Ford class that is all electric? Interesting video but it would have been much more interesting, and informative if much more of the "scary process of recovering an F-18 that crashed from US Aircraft Carrier", was shown.
