Very impressive, actually. Very professional looking. Thanks for posting.
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?!!!!
