Description: FLIGHT DECK EMERGENCY! (U.S Navy aircraft carrier landing CABLE SNAP accident! Well-trained, skillful pilots SAVE THE DAY!) This amazing footage captures the attempted landing of a Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye early warning aircraft (AEW) The landing cable, designed to bring the aircraft to a safe stop, snapped; yet not before it had seriously slowed the Hawkeye's speed; thus causing it to virtually 'fall off' the end of the carrier and come with a few feet of the water. The pilots were subsequently commended for their courage & expertise in the handling of such a hazardous scenario. (Sadly, several crew on the flight deck were injured in the accident.)
