Basically just a hook on the wingtip, this design does rely on the sweep of the wing to make the rope slide to the wingtip for capture, so I don't know about your FJ, but it might work great on a Zephyr or similar...
Hi Arron, if I go with an arrester hook concept I might try a small light hook that drops from the bottom of the plane? Would need all my fly skills to catch the arrester cord. Actually I don't know why those guys in Iraq don't have a nice long runway with all that desert. Probably issue for security.
