I never lose; either I win or I learn.

The US Navy has been filming every single carrier landing since they got their first aircraft carrier.

 

They even film the landings at their land bases.

 

Somewhere out there is a video of an  A-6 landing with just the nose wheel and one main wheel.

The pilot was Lt. Kara Spears Hultgreen. 

Only damage her plane sustained, was a busted light lens.

    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

That's her last flight after she was transferred to VF-213, the Black Lions.

Prior to that she was with VAQ-33 flying EA-6's before going to VF-124 to transition into F-14's.

I think the last time I saw it was in a Frontline episode titled "The Navy Blues"
