I used to work on a flight deck. Part of my training was to watch a video about the dangers of arresting wires. It showed deck cam footage of the arresting wire getting cut by a jet (I think it was an A-7, if I remember correctly) and flailing at high tension across the deck... cutting the legs and torsos of several sailors in half.

I would like to see this feature added. We could have contests: Who can slice more! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

There's already pilots in chutes to shoot, running troops from vehicles to gun down, and in PF we see mortar crew.

If they can do it without seriously delaying, or messing up other aspects... why not?

But I agree that the flight combat environment must be top notch FIRST.

Yeah, cause, you know, people being horribly maimed in accidents is hilariously funny. I think I'll join the Navy to watch people get sucked into intakes. HAHA!

Penguin - I think you've snapped like a trap wire...BtW did you see that video of the guy that WAS sucked into an intake?.. It was an A6 Intruder I think.. his clothes got sucked off over his head and ignited as they blew out the back end... Dude LIVED ! It was during night ops and the guy had not slept for a long time prior to the incident. Anyhoo - I thought you mighta seen it.. Try not to take all this wacked out forum shyte too seriously, though... I don't. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I have heard this is a serious and common problem when the fleet is out to sea.

Crash - 12 years and counting?.. what do you fly?...

Many thanks to you for your service - all of the service people I have met, either current or retired, are the best kind. The Flag waves in front of my house every day for you and for them. Thank-You.

Crash - EP-3E ? so this is electronic surveillance?.. (prolly misspelled that one)

you big evesdropper you..airborne espionager

More listening than looking isn't it?.. or a lot of both?.. nevermind - don't tell me. I'm just glad we have the people and the equipment to pay attention to what the other players are up to.
