JT,

That view looking back at the plane, is from two cameras located in the centerline of the Flight Deck. It is called a PLAT camera, (Pilot Landing Aid Television). It is broadcast to all the TV's on the ship. We had it constantly playing in in our ASW Module so we could keep track of Which S-3's were flying and when they were arriving back onboard.

It was also fun to watch the rookie pilots practice....some were pretty scarry until they got the hang of it.

It is amazing how well FSX recreates that look. (It was also black and white.)

Roger
