There is no such ship as the USS George W. Bush CVN 77. Hopefully there never will be either.

Amazing how stable it is on approach.

I'd like to see it on a black night with a pitching and rolling deck!

I wonder if the "pilot" who I assume was the guy with the control dealie thing hanging around his neck has much input on final?

I also assume the guy flying the thing would normally be up in CIC where the tv like things where being filmed.

Lots of folks out on vultures row to watch the evolution, for sure. You'd never see that many people up there for normal ops.
