    Exactly the reason why you go to full-throttle after the catch.

    Great save!

    The pilot is what you call a trained professional, don't try this at home kids.

    The whole idea of landing on an aircraft carrier is fucked up.

    That's just a myth. Many have been killed it's true, but there's never been a substantiated report of a Sailor being "cut in half" by an arresting cable.

    My FIL if you looked at him now you would not in a million years guess he flew fighter jets and did this stuff in his youth. Seen pics of him on carriers ripped to shreds 6 pack and all.
    Pretty cool stuff he got to do. Never went into combat, but they flew around all the time practicing just in case ( on and off these carriers)
