It's like going throught the carwash...... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

WOW! It was only a few seconds till the bow bounced down and we saw the plane take off....But it seemed like an eternity.
Am I the only one who held their breath to see if it made it?

I'll bet on a scale of one to ten, the pucker factor of everyone on that plane hit fifteen! You've got to give the pilot a hand. He kept his cool and kept control!

Obviously the S-2 is overmodeled.

That, or the waves are undermodeled.

If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it.

Absolutely frightening. An oustanding example of flying. I don't want to know what was going through the pilot's mind when he hit that wave. I can imagine what was going through the other end, though.

Interesting. For a second it actually looks as if he flew underwater, then popped back up.

But of course, he hit a large wave (when the ship dipped and the wave hit) and literally flew through the wash itself. The bow of the ship (coming back up) obscures the fact that the plane`s actually up.

Wish I could see the view from the front.
