This is as close as we will ever get to knowing what it’s like to landing an FA-18 on a carrier in complete radio silence. When Navy aircraft return to a carrier in good weather, it’s called a Case I operation. It’s normally done entirely visually and “ziplip.” No radio comms. In this video you can see the enter sequence from the break over the ship to the final arrestment. All in a day’s work, these pilots are amazing!
