Oh, that's easy... you just taxi out to the end of the runway, apply the brakes, apply afterburner and adjustthe stick until you're balanced on the rear wheels...Bet those Air Force guys can't do that!!! *:-*John

>Bet those Air Force guys can't do that!!!As has been demostrated many times in the past through exchange programs, AF pilots can and do "do that". Nothing that the right amount of training can't teach.Dave

Completely different thing. These guys are actually taking off, the Navy jock was balancing his plane motionless on one wheel (grin)!Jaap Verduijn.

I was talking to an F14 driver at the local airshow a few years ago and was asking him about taking off and landing on the carriers. He said landing wasn't an issue, the takeoff was the rough part with the jolt off the deck!!ChrisFlight Instrutor when its VFRNavajo Cheiftain FO when its IFR
