In this next to last week of the Truman Thursdays series, you’ll get an up and front and personal view (from around 20 feet away) of what’s involved with launching a fighter jet from the deck. I shot this clip about an hour after we arrived on board and, surrounded by safety crew members, were escorted out onto the flight deck. Our group was positioned between the two catapults on the bow of the ship.
In this three minute video, you’ll see an EA-6B Prowler lower its wings and then move into position to be locked into the catapult. After some safety and system checks, the jet goes from 0 to 150 knots in under 3 seconds as the cat launches it from the deck. It’s a pretty amazing experience to be standing so close to that much power and energy. I hope the video will give you a sense of what it’s like.
