A friend of mine used to say, "There are no bad Navy pilots for all the bad ones are at the bottom of the sea" !

As the title says the video is a history of Naval Aviation. The struggle to begin flying off ships and the struggle to maintain a cohesive fighting force using ships and aircraft..

All the wars Carrier Aviation participated in are spoken of and the death of a black Naval aviator on a combat mission in Korea.. For those who have a bad connect and can not watch the video; your loss IMO..

It should be titled "US Naval Aviation". This is an American history.

Yeah, great topic- but my battery is low; will charge
up to view entire video later.

One word comes to mind for me- D R O N E

I heard it said that we are in the last era of manned
fighter jet flight. Me, I'm afraid of flying, so I salute
the brave pilots who take to the sky sitting on a
rocket to adventure.

Closest I ever came was riding an 86 Honda V65 Magna. . .
Nothing like a jet, but on land; nothing comes close!
