VIDEO DEL MES DE ENERO 2019: Working On An Aircraft Carrier Catapult

 

The Catapult Topside Petty Officer’s job is to ensure the safety of all personnel on the flight deck during launching operations, and to ensure the proper hook-up of the aircraft to the catapult. The video starts with about one minute until launch.

The aircraft you’ll see are F/A-18C/D (Legacy) Hornets, F/A-18E/F Super Hornets (Rhinos) and the EA-6B Prowler.
