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.
