I'd give it an 8, but that's pretty amazing.

I hope the pilot got a 10 million dollar bonus for saving a $35 million aircraft!

Nice to have options with a Harrier.
Yeah, he should have gotten a bonus for saving it.

Come on guys, I might be wrong but when I was in the service, I got paid for doing my job PROPERLY no matter what came down the pike, it's what I signed on for--Oh right, let's make sure lil Bobby gets a gold star for spelling his name right, or in fact---just for showing up at school:(------------- :clap: toothy

OK, great piloting you have to grant that one. Now why did the nose gear fail? Isn't that the issue. Another poster nailed it. They made a stool ready for that problem - why? Where is the QC/QA on my $35MM investment. Remember MIL std 105????? So is that program the same as an engine out on an Osprey, nosecone on an ICBM, a critical F35 part or Airforce One.

Great piloting indeed:) Those designers on the plane are probably a fine example of having gotten to many gold stars for just showing up. Damn shame me thinks :(

Maybe they adopt the attitude to be prepared for any situation. Landing gear failures or malfunctions can happen on any type aircraft with retracts. So they were prepared for it when it happened. Thumbs up for thinking ahead. :)

As far as the pilot goes don't forget that he can't see where the saddle is & the carrier isn't sitting still either, very seldom is the ocean totally calm. A job well done indeed.

Seems like a bit of luck was involved as well.

I guess you cannot predict every failure but you can be prepared for the likely ones. I would think if the pilot missed the cradle the landing would hurt from that height. I know I never had an engine out in 500+ hrs in an ultralight aircraft but I did practice engine out landings. I did have a drive failure once and had to shut the engine down I landed without incident. Rolled out just in front of the hanger door as well.

Stuff happens on a carrier all the time, just glad that the foam did not come out and this pilot has a good story to tell. We can't afford to loose a single one of these guys!! Mike
