    I think we need more carriers and more top notch human pilot. War is emotionally driven, not statically driven by robots and drone. I love the United States. Greatest country every!

    These pilots are the best of the best. To land a jet on a deck of a carrier must take nerves of steel. I will forever be grateful to these pilots for protecting our country.

    Pilots v robots. It's not an emotive issue. Regardless of 'Aware choice and decision'. It will come down to who can kill who the fastest. Rational thought will be irrelevant.

    Awesome historical perspective and legacy of Naval Aviation. Great documentary of the archive resources available.

    Having grown up in the middle of it, seeing the legacy at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, it has always been diplomacy on a stick, a force that one would need to be reckoned with if defied.

    It wasnโ€™t secretive or hidden, when on the move, all was about self confident and up front message.

    The message was to those who opposed to listen, โ€œWe are coming with all the force and might of a diverse force to you. And we will raise havoc until you listen.โ€

    It was the Japanese who invented the concept of the aircraft carrier task force. Akagi, Kaga, Hiryu, Soryu, Shokaku, Zuikaku. Dec 7, 1941. The most important ship of the future will be one that carries airplanes. (Cont)Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, 1915. Yamamoto would plan the attack on Pearl Harbor. The war in Europe is being decided by the airplane. There can be no victory on land or sea without control of the air. Commander Minoru Genda. Chief strategist at Pearl Harbor and other naval air battles. The only 5 naval air battles in history were fought between the I.J.N. and the U.S.N. 1942-44. It was the British raid on Taranto, 1940 with biplane Swordfish torpedo planes that sank 3 Italian battleships that influenced the Imperial Japanese Naval staff. It was commander McCluskey from Enterprise 33 dive bombers and commander Leslie from the Yorktown, 17 dive bombers that mortally wounded Akagi, Kaga and Soryu in 5 minutes at Midway. Hitler,s and Stalin,s admirals had of course no vision of naval aviation. Even though they were a collossus on land. This is an excellent docu.

    Amazing how far-sighted men like CAPT Chambers and BG Mitchell were. Not only was BG Mitchell an advocate of he use of aircraft against warships; he also advocated using aircraft as means to deliver Troops, the first suggestion of Paratroopers, behind enemy lines to help in battle.

    A triumph for Billy Mitchell? The test was supposed to be under 'wartime' conditions, which he ignored, instead the test was carried out under static conditions. Mitchell also ignored other aspects of the test which HE himself had stipulated. Navy enginners examining the Ostfriesland after the tests noted that damage to superstructre was relatively minor, and that the ship had sunk due to a progressive flooding that would have been stopped by even a half way competant damage control effort through little actions such as closing water tight bulkhead doors.

    While Billy Mitchell was right, in the 1920's aircraft were simply incapable of carrying enough weapons far enough, he effectively fudged his own test to prove his point, while ignoring that by doing so he would only seed doubts in the minds of everyone else who KNEW he had fudged the damned tests. It was not till the late 30's that aircraft of enough power and range were being developed that Carrier Primacy became a very near reality, and not really until after 1940 that the writing on the wall was clear following the raid on Taranto. Do NOT mistake the Fairey Swordfish for a 1918 aircraft, when it was designed in the 1930's it was a cutting edge, modern design. Like many aircraft designed at that time however, it was designed and built during a time when aircraft technology was undergoing a time of extremely rapid innovation. When the swordfish dropped torpedos on Bismark, or Taranto, the aircraft was less than a decade in service, compare that to modern military aircraft, some of which are expected to remain in service for over 4 decades… That should give some context to how rapidly aicraft technology was advancing in that time….

    pilots are widely considered some of the most intelligent capable thinkers. especially fighter pilots.if thats true how come so many of them are happy to go along with state sanctioned slaughter? ….. and people say mind control is a conspiracy theory lol.

    What's crazy is these people are genuinely proud of the destruction they inflict, sheep sent into wars, no thought of real reason why or the death they cause. Proud to of built weapons of mass destruction!! Hiroshima was heart breaking, women, children, family's destroyed and killed!! For what???? WW2.. Hitler, a man who simply saw what was coming and wanted to save his race, problem was he went for the majority instead of the few orchestrators of every war, funded by Jews. Look at Germany today, there race being removed, flooded with Muslims and Africans, same for rest of Europe! Hitler saw this coming. But elite evil had to carry on with their agenda, and made Hitler the enemy. War is simply greed and corruption, all orchestrated by a few, with use of puppets. Rothschild's funded much of the wars.. Pure evil.

    how is landing on a carrier the most difficult thing in aviation if people do it all of the time?

    In the beginning, the US Military were resistant to aircraft, considering it nothing but a toy from a bicycle maker. The Battleship reigned supreme. Even in early WW1, they were only considered observation posts
