Horrific Footage: Plane Flying Right into a Freak Wave
Check out this short but totally worthwhile video! This kinda old footage displays the Grumman S-2E Tracker, the first purpose-built anti-submarine aircraft in U.S Navy that is placed on the USS Ticonderoga CVS4 aircraft carrier flying right into a fierce wave.
As reported, the story goes on like this: an officer launches the plane he watches for the bow to hit the bottom, that way the plane will be launched as the bow comes up. Consequently, a fierce wave hits the aircraft carrier as soon as the plane leaves the catapult and the plane flies right into it horrifically.
