How come the planes don't get washed off if they hit a big wave? Posted on April 29, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor How come the planes don't get washed off if they hit a big wave?
The pilots leave the parking break on
Well what if it's a really big wave
they have pilots insurance in case of a total loss. they just call their nearest Geico representative
BRAKE, you joggerfucking dumbass.
its the e brake and sometimes they forget the fucking keys
Duct tape, sometimes semen.
They're chained to the padeyes. Next question.
If they are chained, how can they fly away? That would make the plane a kite of the carrier.
Its designed this way intentionally dumbass. If theres an incoming torpedo that they cant dodge they have all the jets turn around and take off at the same time to lift the carrier out of the water so the torpedo goes under it. When its safe they have the chains reel the planes back in so they dont have to take turns landing.
US planes make the carrier the kite. F-35 can carry two Ford class under each wing but one is more stealthy.
A wave hitting it? At sea? Chance in a million.
they rub sand on the wheels
If it starts to tip they fire up the afterburners on the jets and level the ship again. That is why you have planes parked around the perimeter.
The only right answer
t. once rowed a canoe
It happens all the time. Every year there are dozens of F18/F22 lost at sea due to them falling off aircraft carriers in inclement weather.
Facts. I've found them washed up on the beach before. Poor things look terrible after the crabs have been at them for a few days. Even saw a Park Ranger cry once
>totally got her number
>and her snap
These hard working people
Verification not required
>statie patrol boats swarm the carrier to flag the load for not being strapped
Don't all they do be attach and detach those chains? Better than scraping rust or painting I guess
while dodging vehicles, planes, jet intakes, and the deck edge, yeah.
What vehicles are they dodging?
Formula 1 cars.
Flight deck crew is hard and dangerous work.

They use glue or something, I dunno.
This question did not deserve it's own thread
Cry me a river and go submit your janny application. Don't forget your CV.
Don't feel bad just because you don't know the answer
550 cord. Not on the planes, on the waves. Tie them up before they can hit the ship and they can't toss the planes off the deck.
They lube everything with cooking oil then let it go rancid and harden. Nothing moves, it's a nice stinky solid edible mass, there's a whole discussion on it over at qtddtot.
ship emits an aura of wave flattening.
Aircraft carriers look kinda goofy when the planes are actually on the deck, if we could get them to fly out from under the deck it would be way more aesthetic.
They use steel tie-down anchors that are explosively welded to the aluminum deck structure.
hehehe almost like they're on a 1000 feet ship. truly a mistery.
God never hits them with big waves
