Navy aircraft carrier directly -8 bulky difficulty landing a high degree of risk
Sun newspaper reporter Yang-8 helicopter landing straight riding moments. Were taken

authority of the military theorists pointed out: no carrier-based naval aviation is not a real navy.
Security Center, according to U.S. statistics: the United States in the process of achieving the helicopter was supposed to ship hundreds of aircraft.
with two historical conclusion, at 6:00 on May 20, I boarded the South China Sea Fleet Air Force regiment of a straight-8 helicopter, landing at sea training experience.
sparkling, sky and sea. Glow wears off the helicopter, and soon, like water show in front of the blue satin. Cabin, crowded flight instruments, meters, lights flashing, showing the various parameters, I am dazzled.
5 minutes later, the helicopter began to accelerate at low altitude sea-skimming flight, outside the windows, Yunfei Langjuan.
“× × number, lock, consult landing.” Captain, the Deputy Head of Jiaozhen Jun ship podium to issue instructions.
“checks, and can be landing.” Podium came a brief and effective response.
then I found the steel blue sky and water between the ship like a boat.
Jiaozhen Jun rapid build landing routes and concentrate on aircraft control, skillful reduced altitude and slow flight. After a few seconds, I felt the helicopter lifted his head slightly, slowly down, the white cross marks on the deck more and more clear. We are like a bullet on the bore, accurate to the “bull’s-eye” fly.
overlooking the sea, stirring with a strong water flow, setting off a huge wave, splash dance, mist rising. Ship building walking towards me at the moment, the machine has not see the bottom of the landing point in the cockpit, my body leaning forward, through the front window to see a ship to guide members hold high the red, green and two round cards through gestures guidelines landing position.
just a few seconds later, the guide member raised the green signal to allow landing card, the captain determined to seize the focus of the deck is relatively stable at the moment, quickly put down the pole pitch, the helicopter has appeared in two short and slight sinking, then the plane from the weight of 7 tons, a wingspan of nearly 20 meters Hawk landed firmly in the center of the flight deck circle logo.
seemingly casual one down, but amazing hidden danger. Straight -8 size, weight, required space for small landing ship-borne helicopters four times. The small ships flight deck, plus Shanghai flow, wind direction, the impact of hull bumps, when landing the difficult, dangerous can be imagined. With Jiaozhen Jun’s words, waves with the sinking ship is about to go up after the landing when is the best time, but to seize this opportunity, not an overnight trained.
out of the cabin, a heat wave and a damp wind blowing, the ship swings with the waves rolling, a hard time actually made me based on stability. I saw the helicopter’s wingspan is close to the deck width, mark circle against the backdrop of the body is even more narrow, precisely by the “bull’s eye” is of superhuman courage and technology needs, or requires a certain talent.
With a great roar, suddenly rotor speed, the aircraft took off again, like an agile petrels, in front of the ships at sea and the sky hovering phase after a week, to start a new round of training.
mind that even though the original two conclusions emerge over and over again during the flight, but only experienced waves of a precision down this valley, in order to have realized that one of taste.
