Description
U S Marine Captain Rand McNally Atlas crash lands on USS Ranger
Credit Jamieooh
Edit Serpa6
This carrier was bobbing badly if you look, you can see the tower of a destroyer close in i guess for emergency ejection going up and down I have worked on these towers in a shipyard and your looking at about 60-70 feet high depending on the ship and its class, he has no choice to land with one of his landing gear up and stores intact the story below:


During a storm in the Indian Ocean, Atlas was down one set of landing gear. The rest of the squadron went and landed on a nearby island due to the storm, Atlas, had to dump his fuel and had one chance to land into the net. This is a great tribute to Bug Roach (Bug can be heard on the audio calmly talking the pilot down to the aircraft carrier) and his contribution to Naval Aviation. Footage is from March 9, 1991

Man. Ditto on Bug talking them down. Epitome of "ice man"

Good job all around.
