Alright, here goes:
try and be a little lazy and it f**ks me every time.
HOW THE HELL ARE ALL THE PICS BACK NOW???
Wow, grabbed the cable too. Wonder how old those pics are.
OK, the site I got it from says it was just a few days ago in Australia, and here's a link to a video:
%35 for ads!!! NSFW

watch out depending on where you are, there are some nude pics on the border on that site.
I miss the Vietnam camo though.........
Our A-7D's I worked had tailhooks.........never knew the Aardvarks had 'em.
The old camo was cool. All our planes at Iwakuni (A4,A6, F4s, )had the old camo, and a few had patches!!!!
We had one A7-D that had a red star "kill" on it! I wish I'd thought to ask the story on that! I saw some transit F-4E's with "kills", but they just refueled and launched, should have gotten tail numbers on the F-4's and never thought of getting our A7's either............
Every one of our fighter aircraft have tail hooks.
EDIT: Actually, the F117 may not. I know it uses a parachute system to slow down.
I worked A-7D's, A-10A's then MAC and SAC A/C............like to see one on a C-5A!!!
I thought they usually foam the runway to help with sparks??
They don't do that anymore. Haven't done it since I've been in. Don't know why.
If you do some research re MCAS Iwakuni, 77-78, you might find one of the reasons. Lets just say that the crash trucks don't stop or steer too well when they hit the foam.
Struth, pretty cute landing Blue. Crack another tinny an' take her up again eh?!
Got love those laid back Aussies!
I've seen a few C-5's come in with the nose gear still retracted...the pilots did an awesome job keeping the nose up until the very end.
BTW, no tailhook on any of the T-38's that I've worked on...
The T38 is a training aircraft. The F5 (single seat T38) had a tailhook.
I just learned today that the F117 stealth fighter (even though it's really a precision bomber designated with the F fighter nomenclature) does infact have a tail hook that is tucked away inside the fuselage for stealth purposes.
