That is what 9 out of 10 of my carrier landings look like!

WOW
The title of this thread leads me to believe he walked away. Is that true? It doesn't look like he could have.

Looks like he's alive, he's clenching with his arm, if he were dead i'd assume it'd be dangling out of the cockpit, not up like it is

I hosted a coop in HL the other day, and a guy landed pretty much like that. Both his wings came off rolling down the deck and he stopped 1 inch from the tower. In his defence he was pretty badly shot up by a 109. Don't ask.

Thats an awsome pic..have you seen this one?
Looks like the guy is climbing onto the burning plane to help the pilot?

He deserved a medal for that. I hope he got one.

It seems like I remember seeing that in vedio form. No doubt that guy was a hero.

They did both survive, the guy climbing onto the tank was the catapult officer Lieutenant Walter Chewning, and the pilot was Ens. Byron Johnson who went on to gain a number of kills (2.5 I think)

From the day pacific fighters arrived at my front door, i have landed on carriers about 21 times, 5 of those, i actually got to a halt on the deck instead of in the water.
I don't think the gear has much use when i hit the back of the ship every time i try to land.

Looks like he mapped the Fold Aircraft key instead of the Fold Wings key...
