What a super vid, well spotted Greg.

But what's with all the slo-mo? The choppers look crazy at slow speed! I'm amazed they don't have bridle catchers for the Super Etendards in this day and age.

There was a quite discussion about this video: some said that this was actual aborted landing, others claim it was (another one) demonstration of super-maneuverability of Su-30. However, we've got amazing video!

I'd think that it was a demonstration of an inexperienced carrier pilot demonstrating that he doesn't know how to fly a missed approach. Had that hook caught... pancake!

Very cool video no matter what.

That Mighty Mo video is awesome as well. I can only imagine what the escort ship crews must have thought knowing that their "big" gun was secondary armament for BB 63. It would be nice to see the impacts as her shells hit the target of the SINKEX.
