Went with a friend on a short flight today in a Piper Warrior.  It's warm and breezy here so we got bumped around quite a bit!

When fully loaded with ordnance, a Harrier cannot perform a vertical takeoff. On board a Tarawa-class ship, they had about 500 feet to get from a standing start to a speed sufficient enough that they wouldn't plunk into the ocean. USS Peleliu had a gym right below the forward end of the flight deck, and you could feel Harriers being launched when you were in there.

Aside from assisting with engine changes (which required removal of the wings), I never worked on Harriers much. But its awlways good to see them. I bet the flight in the Warrior, despite the bumps, was pretty fun, too! :tu:

I didn't know that Dan.  It makes sense though, loaded up. 
Yes it was a good time!  I never minded getting bounced around a bit.  That platform is so stable you hardly notice it!

Awesome photos Milhouse!  Especially love that first one with the second Osprey sneaking in behind.  :salute:
