Must See - Video included!

You may have seen this in a PBS documentary a couple years ago.  I did, but these two segments were just as riveting as the first time I saw them. Each segment is about 10 minutes and is well worth the time to watch, even if you have seen it. This is some gripping stuff...
This is very unnerving to some as these guys land on a deck pitching up and down 30 feet at night and low on fuel.  
These videos show the difference between Naval Aviation and any other kind.  The links below are two outstanding videos about F-18 carrier operations aboard the USS Nimitz during weather that causes a severely pitching deck, which you can see in the videos.  It's more dangerous than most combat missions and the tension in the pilots and crew is very apparent.  Watch Part 1 first, then Part 2.  Great videos.
I guarantee this will definitely hold your attention.
