Saturday Flights

January 30th FlightNight . Carrier ops.

 

The Carrier Nimitz will be cruising the Bristol Channel. The Plan: We'll meet at the appointed hour at EGOD and assemble for a flight departure time of 2000 UTC Sharp! Bring a fast jet from the FGUK Hangar that is carrier capable - Sorry, the first part of the flight and operations are restricted to jets from the FGUK Hangar *ONLY*!! We'll depart smartly South to intercept and land at will upon the rolling deck of the Nimitz.



During the last half hour it'll devolve (as it always does!) to an every man for himself scenario and in that time frame anything you desire can be landed on the decks. You can try heli's or even a C-17 (it's been done!!) in the last half hour.

In the event of the inevitable crash or cold water dunking, you can use close alternative airports like EGFH/Swansea or EGFF/Cardiff to get back in the swing for another shot at her.

I'll try and run the Nimitz at various times over the coming week so folks can get their practice on. I highly suggest aircraft like the F-18, Sea Vixen, anf F-4J for newbies or the inexperienced. Take this week to get familiar with how to drop a hook and grab the launch bar! Get familar with the lifts and take a trip below deck - ride the lift back up, set up and grab a launch bar, and catapult yourself off the deck for another try!

See You there!!
