  1. Wow! Great photos – was the pilot in the second panther below deck?

  2. That looks as if it could’ve been a lot worse….. – 🙁

  3. Brings new meaning to “hole in one…”

  4. Wow! Real carrier life! They say a carrier deck is THE most dangerous workplace in the world!

  5. Well, some say “any landing you walk away from is OK” and bear in mind its a Marine plane….

  6. Almost controlled “Crash Landing”
