A Carrier and a Vulcan; a Novel Approach

While catching up with events in another place, as one does, I saw this Post;


Over the deck at about 130 Kts I slammed the throttles whilst rotating for a pull up hoping that no one would be blown overboard. Those Olympus engines could spool up in about 2 seconds. Maybe they lost some loose items in receiving such a rebuff from the RAF. The admirals did apologise for the unauthorised intrusion

I would dearly like to hear from anyone who was on the deck of that carrier at the time.
I wonder if anyone here remembers this from sea level?
