    Having failed one "reason", you pull out another fail reason. Sorry, FOD isn't created by a jet taking off, otherwise they would do a FOD search after every takeoff. Try again. Try harder this time.

    No need. I sit down leaning back comfortably and look whether sometimes in the future two aircarft take off using the same track from different positions.

    To do so is a very dangerous procedure ...

    Not sure if this has been posted before, but it's great nonetheless:

    I missed

    Watching every motion
    In my foolish lover's game
    On this endless ocean
    Finally lovers know no shame
    Turning and returning
    To some secret place inside
    Watching in slow motion
    As you turn around and say
    Take my breath away
    Take my breath away

    LOL!

    Not sure how this video of amateur goofballs experiencing amateur failures has any relevance to carrier flight operations, like somehow a waist position J-15 pilot would put his engines into afterburner when he can clearly see a blast deflector and another J-15 sitting right in front of him, not to mention this act of suicide would absolutely have to be accompanied by a simultaneous failure of the wheel blocks in order for the waist J-15 to start rolling forward regardless of what the pilot himself did. The waist J-15 no more endangers the port bow J-15 than a regular fighter taxiing behind another fighter on any runway, or a jetliner taxiing behind another jetliner on any commercial runway, something that happens thousands of times every day across this planet. In fact jetliners taxiing behind other jetliners would put jetliners in front of them at MORE risk because unlike J-15s they don't actually have any wheelblocks to keep them from moving forward into the ass end of the next jetliner.

    There is a difference between engine power for taxiing and for the take-off run.

    You and me will search the internet for proof of two aircraft taking of from the same track on a carrier using different positions. That was done as I remember until the middle of world war II with piston engine aircraft, but never with jet aircraft.

    Again, there is no difference because the J-15 sitting at the waist position does not have to be powered for takeoff (i.e. afterburner) until the port bow J-15 is already gone and the jet blast deflector is lowered.

    I can see it for the 20th time, and it still looks good. It would be neat if they put more J15's on deck for a promotion shot.
