Dang, This Guy Gets Blown the Heck Away By an Aircraft Takeoff

That’s a bit of a tumble, ain’t it? Watch as this crew member gets blown away on the flight deck after the EA-6B Prowler took off. It’s pretty scary, especially since he gets blown pretty damn close to the jet blast defector (and that he’s on an aircraft carrier), but he manages to regain his bearings and even give a little celebration after getting tossed the hell around.

The Ea-6B Prowler is no longer used in the Navy but the Marine Corps still operates them.

I was on the USS Carl Vinson once and a newer female pilot landed on the deck, which was in the pouring rain, and she hit so hard that she bounced the plane (F/A-18 Super Hornet). Her front tire ran into the deck edge scuffer, which runs along the flight deck. She had to set a few out after that. Was entertaining around the ship though because we all saw the video of it.
