Yep
Saw that earlier today and must say a wonderful recovery.
Amazed really that this "Hummer"had what it took to power out of that as he looked pretty slow going over the side.
Great piloting.
Saw an A-7 break a hook once and the pilot punched and the plane recovered itself for a bit before splashing.

Tense moment to be sure and unfortunately no "punch out" option for Hawkeye crew -- very fortunate recovery!
Carrier flight deck crews have one of the most dangerous jobs there is -- hope their injuries from the cable blow-back weren't too serious.

This was back in March.

NORFOLK, Va. — Navy investigators say human error is to blame for an incident that injured eight sailors on the Norfolk-based aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in March.

The sailors were injured after a cable used to catch a landing of an E-2C Hawkeye snapped on the carrier's flight deck.

A Navy report obtained by The Virginian Pilot in a public records request says workers missed at least one and possibly two "critical steps" while performing maintenance.

As a result, the report says an engine that controls the flight deck cables didn't slow the aircraft and the cable broke.

The report says the sailors' injuries included a fractured ankle, wrist, pelvis and legs. One sailor suffered skull and facial fractures and another suffered a possible traumatic brain injury.
