Naval aviation porn (home movies)

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

Naval aviation porn (home movies)

On my 3rd cruise, in VF-114 on the USS Enterprise CVN-65.
You can see the ship turning into the wind to launch.




Not me, just a cool (and WAY better quality) video of operations. The "Jolly Rogers".
2x2x2 (AIM-54, AIM-7 and AIM-9) loadout.
What a great fighter!




Not my footage, but after a cruise in the RF-8 and 2 cruises in the F-14A, the Navy forced me to fly adversary in the F-16N. Poor me!

Cool vids!
As a kid I used to dream of being a fighter pilot, and F-14 was my "favorite" plane, although they did not fly in the country I grew up in.

It was a great airplane, for sure.
When I went to VF-126 they were transitioning from the F-5 to the F-16. We went up to get photos of the airplanes we were flying, and I had a guy in my back seat with one of those old VHS cameras. Not great quality, unfortunately.

We could usually run the fighters out of gas, and then we'd go 1v1 against each other, guns only, to get our fill of close in dogfighting. After a few months of that and we got pretty good!

And someone put together some great footage of the Swiss Air Force flying:



The Rafale is very cool!



Edit, March 1: Growler Jams has great videos as well.
