Wait until Night Traps.
I've had my last night trap. I'm somehow OK with that. Granted, I'm not a pilot, but there's something to be said about sitting in a jet while the guy to your right is trying to land a 40-some odd thousand pound jet on a boat. At night. Yeah...

Congrats to all of you guys that qual'ed.

So are you saying that after a confusing night, you and the pilot switched seats by accident and he couldn't figure out why the flight controls from the right seat didn't work? :)

I'm not going to lie. That was ridiculously, indescribably fun.
Yes, day traps are definitely fun on a steady well run deck. As MB says, traps on a rainy night with a pitching, rolling deck and no bingo field:eek:Patch USN Wings.gif ...not so much!

BTW, mucho congrats on your new shiny set of "Golden Crotch Keys".:)

Even though the night was a bit confusing, I let the pilot stay in the left seat. Dyslexic moment there. D'Oh!

Thinking of it, that may very well explain part of why I've had my last night trap...

My last night trap will be sometime in October.. Yeah. Not looking forward to it. Never going to be a Nocturion in the E-2.. No real desire to either.

Day trap bag-ex? Hell yes.

And the second picture in the first post is my roommate.
Should we give you a prize? Maybe a trophy, or a little Tiara? I think the tiara would probably make that molestache you were sporting the other night look even better...

By the way for those of you who dont know Python... once he grows his boat stache he looks EXACTLY like Borat.

Really? Some mistakes I can understand, like an alpha bird being attributed to TW-2 but damn... that's one funny looking helicopter.
