Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I note that the planes don't have any assistance for the take off: bbc linky
  2. Very impressive, actually. Very professional looking. Thanks for posting.

  3. Agree, very professional looking.

    One thing that did bring a smile to my face, the aircraft marshallers irrespective of country seem to wear yellow!!!! Chock-heads world wide can now identify with each other!!!:thumleft:

    I would imagine that the Chinese have assiduously copied everything that appears to work - why not?

    I was watching the aircraft as it came across the deck, very much in control. I wonder how many bump/grinds they did before going for a hard trap?

    And was it really the first? Certainly it is the first that the Chinese have released footage of but perhaps there may have been a few splashes first and a few broken undercarriages prior to this successful one.

    Cynic - moi?!!!!
