I don't know but it's been said that Air Force wings are made of lead and i don't know but i've been told that Navy wings are made of Gold Very Happy . I've been and am still in the process of rebuilding my Carrier fleet. So rather than be shy and keep it to myself i thought i'd share Very Happy , so this thread might go on for a while Rolling Eyes . We start off in a hardened shelter at RAF/USAF Lakenheath for a short 200 mile flight

We start up and taxi

It's a long taxi here Rolling Eyes
Finally we reach the runway,final check and look around and advance the throttles

It's a beautiful day to fly Very Happy

Passing the new Ark Royal Carrier group......

......because we're headed for the old one Razz

Looking good so far

And put it down right on the money Shocked for a change

Fold the wings and park up

Thanks for taking the time to view these there will be another along soon Very Happy Rolling Eyes !

Thanks gents, warlord40 i think you mean Air Brake by AB, as full power is applied before landing in case the wire is missed and we have to bolter i did'nt apply it! The three wire is all the braking you need Smile.

Welsh you done it again! Stellar job there... your helo landings make me look bad... mine usually start with what I call "the yoyo approch" and end in flaming hunk of metal slamming into the deck.

All the shots here are terrific! I think the helo pilot might have found himself in front of his C/O for landing so close to the edge--but great stuff
