View Full Version : The deck dropped, Cap'n, honest

I landed an F4F on the Lexington on my first flight.

Not my first try, but on the same flight.

I bolted the first one. I came back around and caught the three wire, so I'm a second-timer.

I'm still waiting for the WingCo to drag me up to the Captain's quarters for a chewing out...I'm gonna say the LSO was in the john or something...

Where is that dude anyway? He ain't at his post on my carriers either. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Dunno. But I'm kicking his ar$e when I see him.

I think that I could make out an LSO on the deck and his paddles very clearly, if he were modelled to be about 7 feet tall, and the paddles were a bright color (as they should be). I really think I could see a tall LSO at about 500 yards, not clearly, but if his entire body moved to the left, to the right, he bent down, lifted the paddles, etc, that I could indeed benefit from that.

Say he moved 10 feet right or left, slowly or quickly as needed to mirror the correction you need, and if you were too low, he put his paddles over his head, if you were too high, he'd crouch, if you're too fast, well, you're too fast, I guess http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif And we could get the wave-off if his paddles seemed to flash from dull to bright

I really think that would work

We ought to just put a strip dancer on the side of the deck.
