A great job by all. After watching the clip a couple things come to mind.

First, How much damage would it actually do if it sat down on the deck instead of on the stand?

I wonder if they could build a hard point or maybe some sort of airbag on the plane in case this happens where no jack stand were available?

I realize the pilot couldn't see but was probably being directed by radio. I wonder why they didn't place markers that the pilot could see. Say 30 ft away in all four directions. Then he could center himself between the visible markers.

You take a skilled, experienced pilot and a good communicator on the carrier. Toss them into a blender and add a dash of horse *censored* luck and things will most likely fall together quite nicely... :lol:

Nice job... :D

Lee,

I'm not sure, "fall together" is the best choice of words for this one. :D
