He's Bouncing Again.
That amber light on the front of the jet means Mr. Pilot is on speed (the proper pitch to have a hook catch a wire).
Sis is holding the paddles controller, "When you push this button Dad will give the jet more power!"
Ready, set, go!
When your tire goes from 0 to 180mph in .2 sec, it releases the "magic smoke"...
It is ridiculously loud where these kids are standing...you really can't imagine it unless you're there.
"If you push this button, Dad will wave-off." (apply MAX power and fly away)...
What do you think happened?
Those red "wave-off" lights on the left and the burners lit on the back of the jet, that is what happened.
That was so loud, the new baby jolted.
Normally the lens (the lights in the left background) has the green "datum" to show your reference for how high or low you are from glideslope. The ball is vertically oriented between the datum's and when it's in the middle you are "on-glideslope."
There are 2 squadrons needing Pilots and 2 Pilots needing squadrons when they finish in March. One squadron deploys (as in leaves for 6 months and doesn't get to visit) in May. I am praying my due date is wrong or something...
