Re: Planes taking off from Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft cruiser

Their launch methods look a bit backwards if you ask me!

I can't help but think aircraft carriers are energy inefficient too. If they launched them backwards then as the plane takes off the turbine pressure out the back of the plane would help to push the boat along!

See... I could solve so many of the worlds issues if people would listen to me...

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Excellent R.N. film on "Flying Stations"... made in 1975.....

Watched those planes take off and land, many many times, day and night, during my time on Centaur.. ( smaller aircraft carrier ) very exciting.

 

(25 mins film )..

No disrespect to your service years by the way shutter, but rather you than me!
