Top of the Chart


Paladin Stacker : Notice at time 0:46 the pilot's hands are OFF the stick until cleared of the catapult and he's airborne? I never knew that.

hrburrell : My old boat. We had Tomcats and the older variation of the hornet back then. After seeing it in person a few dozen times it loses its coolness but to watch now after all these years its impressive.

Gaming Freaks : Love these guys. Thanks for your service.

Harrison Mantooth : Looks like an awesome ride. Thank you, everyone for being there. Stan

rohit nautiyal : I did 7.5 years in the Navy I said to myself nothing will make be go back but every time I watch these videos I start to think of OCS


Key West Kyn : In an F4 any pressure on the stick during the cat shot would cause the plane to nose up and then crash down...rather quickly

Stefano Ccardellinoo : Feel like Battlefield 3

TripleAstyle1 A : if my cheap snowmobile helmet is $500, whats that pilot helmet run these days? I want to guess $10k.

Phad Trader : My 11 yr old son has wanted to be a USN fighter pilot since he was 4 yrs old. It makes perfect sense to me! God Bless them all.

BlockChainDP : AFK lol

Bobby Price : My daughters ship!

SixStringLove Guy : I am a Plank Owner of this ship (I was ships company when commissioned) and spent four years onboard her (86 to 90) I was an Aviation Ordnanceman in the Weapons Dept G-3 division (mag rat) Nice to see her again. A lot of good memories and lifelong friends. A lot of hard work too. Any other mag rats out there?

MrBen527 : Nice!  With actual audio too!

ClearedToLand7 : LOL.. love the gun shooter hands...

furyofbongos : Coolest shots ever.

SoopaFlyism : The greatest navy in the world. USA...USA...!!

Yugan Dali : Thank you for allowing me to see something I will never have a chance to do.

Gud : Thank you for dropping bombs on those people for us. I didn't know them but I bet they were real jerks.

jam rockergc : wow what a job..........

Djwheezy TheKingOfTheUnderground : Like riding a bike, with the "Instructions!" I can fly anything! 💯

Russ Stonge : spent 8 years in the Navy as a out and became a GOV contractor for the Navy for 17 years for SPAWAR....I have made just around 50 catches and launches off a Carriers on CODS...and my life was in their hands and I never once questioned their abilities.....I LOVE OUR NAVY!

jim d : That’s FREEDOM baby !! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Alfredo Pacheco Jr : No one is going to comment on the COD at 1:08 approaching the break as the hornet the same direction?

32 Yr Old Casual Food Industry Worker : MURICA.

kingnikkurt : So cool

6Twisted : What's the 0-60 time on the launch and what is the final launch speed?

Detlef Heubach : impressive pictures ❤

CO Jeff : Why do you not have your hands on the stick before takeoff?

laura woodward : So cool!!! 😎👍 LOVE our men!!! 😍 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸USA🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

RetroCNY : Look ma, no hands. I always thought this looked so funny, but apparently it's SOP because you don't want any inadvertent stick movement due to the g-forces of a cat launch. Plus, if you look at the elevators in the back, they're already pitched down without the pilots hand being on the stick so there's no back pressure involved. I wonder how they set that up in the aircraft.

Jdor D : These skillful pilots deserve our respect......"Yeshua/Jesus is the way"

Maxi Kirchgässner : I love it 💋

My Royal Army : 😂😂

STING HD邱哥 : BF3 in real life

AGENT47ist : You can notice at 0:36 from the first F18 taking off,the elevons are already up by default without stick input. Guess that's why they don't touch the controls until off the deck and airborne.

Apollo Actual : 😍

Rodney Hampton : It would be badass to experience a catapault launch. *RHamptonCISSP*

PAJERO TRIP 789 : there is before 1detik ? to fly ?

Scott Lincoln : Awesome man....!

Al Gilmore : Primitive.

Homefront : My dad flew F-4’s off of carriers during Nam.. The became a ECM Engineer on my beloved Tomcat. I love carrier launches
