JT,

Here is a video of an F-18 that had an arrestor cable break, watch at the end when it zooms in on the deck hands one jumps over the cable the others are not watching and it takes them down.

We had an arrestor cable break with an A-7 when I was on the Kennedy it "Killed" two and seriously injured three.

Flight Decks are dangerous places to be.

December 3, 1981 Caribbean Sea An arresting wire breaks during the landing of an A-7 Corsair aircraft on the USS KENNEDY killing two men and injuring three others. Four aircraft including the A-7 are damaged

Max,

Just set up yourself an account in FSX. If for some reason you can't do it that way(I couldn't); go to www.gamespy.com and sigh up on their website.

FSX Pilots,

When I set up the session I'm going to use the same Carrier waypoint(TADPO) but add forward motion and see if it works.
Don't forget to open and close Flight Planner.
If it doesn't work we will just add some wind an set the carrier facing into the wind.

I couldn't come on tonight, too busy trying to make the stupid jzip files extracted into the airplanes folder under fsx...finally gave up on jzip as a bad job and am using explorer.exe, it seems to be working fine!

Roger; cool, I'll see if I can pick one up sometime!

thanks for helping me out, I appreciate it

Welcome onboard Fernando13, I hope you can join in on a multiplayer session sometime. We are usually under "Fly Ins" and something with Keystone in it or "Whiskeyjake".

JT,

It would be great to find another carrier capable aircraft like the F-14. I like the F-18 also, but something from the bomber, ASW side would be nice.
