The video recorded an F18 Hornet plane breaking its brake line, rushing over the edge of the aircraft carrier at lightning speed and this caused everything there to be extremely chaotic.
At 50 seconds, the workers on the deck jumped over the cable, then knocked several other sailors. A brake device, or brake device, is a mechanical system used to rapidly decelerate an aircraft as it lands and it is most commonly used on CATOBAR and STOBAR aircraft carriers.
Similar systems are also found at land-based airfields for emergency or expeditionary use. Typical systems include several cables laid over the aircraft’s landing area.
It is designed to be caught by the tail hook of the aircraft. During normal firing, the tail hook hooks onto the line and the aircraft’s kinetic energy is transmitted to a hydraulic damping system mounted below the deck of the carrier.
There are also other related systems that use nets to capture aircraft wings or landing gear, it appears that these intercept and intercept systems are only used for emergency capture of non-aircraft aircraft. tail hook which works.
The United States Navy’s modern aircraft carriers are equipped with the Mark 7 Mod 3 imaging device, which is capable of recovering a 50,000-pound aircraft with a gravity of 130 knots over a distance of 344 feet, in two seconds. . .
The system is designed to absorb a theoretical maximum energy of 47,500,000 fofoot-pounds at maximum cable breakage whereas modern carriers typically have three or four brake cables laid across the area landing .
This video was shot by a sailor aboard the USS Ronald Reagan during sea trials in 2003. A brake failure caused the plane to swerve over the edge of the deck. The F-18 pilot parachuted and survived.
Note how much damage the end of the pendant on the deck did to equipment and personnel as it whipped across the flight deck. He must have been very lucky.
Another factor that I can think of is that the end of the deck he runs to has to wobble with the waves and be in the optimal position, just barely swinging at height and tilting up a few degrees and hesitated for a moment before turning down.
The plane landed efficiently with little climb momentum and a few feet above the water. The fact that the tail of the plane did not hit the deck supports this theory.
The pilot must have done an excellent job of loosening the front yoke and embracing the water to take advantage of the ground effect. Many opinions expressed their feelings with this video:
“Thank God for the quickness of the pilot as well as the guy on the ground… oh my god ”
“Screaming jumper 😂”
“The most thrilling jump rope game ever played!”
