Video: Operations on a Flight Deck - Time Lapse!

Flight deck operations aboard the USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier

The flight deck of an aircraft carrier is one of the most dangerous working environments in all of the military. The close quarters of aircraft, sailors, and equipment; the pitching and rolling flight deck; turning rotors and jet engines; and aircraft launching at recovering at a couple hundred miles an hour all make for an unforgiving workplace!

This makes the sailors who work day-in-and-day-out in this environment some of the best and watching the ballet that is flight operations on the carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) is awesome! Check this out, from our sister site Navy.Army.com!

Video: Final Flight of an Apache Pilot - Awesome!

Final Flight in an Apache for Peter Gordijn
Peter Gordijn, a Dutch Apache helicopter pilot and author of the book "Wakker!" ("Awake!") takes us along for the ride during his final flight as an Apache pilot.

While we've seen quite a few low-level flights in fast jets, low-level has a different meaning to a helicopter pilot. For these guys, low-level means making groundhogs duck (do they have groundhogs in the Netherlands?) and looking up at bushes!
