Of course from a 2012 perspective we would have been better off if the German fleet was still there sunk rather than salvaged and cut up for scrap.

Imagine all the archeological opportunities and BBC/Discovery-Channel documentaries it would have created.

Default F18 breaking cable while landing on aircraft carrier

Impressive video, one (very lucky) guy jumping over the snapping cable, seven others less fortunate:

walking the deck of an aircraft carrier is still one of the most dangerous jobs on the market. I wonder how much these guys earn!

I think if you were to ask any of those guys who were hit by that cable, the answer would be "Not enough!"

yeah, that's the actual risk: the whiplash of such big steel cables can cut through metal, let alone a human body!

then you have the risk of being sucked in by a jet or minced by a propeller, roasted by jet exhausts, decapitated by wings, blown up or burned by weapons/fuel, thrown in the sea (with pretty much little to no chance of even being found), crushed by unsecured aircraft...

All in all they could probably do a "Final Destination Special" only on aircraft carrier ops!

Yeah, this sort of thing does make great TV. I would imagine a few TV production companies are in talks with our Burmese Spitfire hunters right now.
I seem to recall there is a demand for sunken battleship steel today. It was generally of very high quality and more importantly, being beneath the ocean since before August 1945 means it has not been irradiated by atmospheric nuclear weapons testing and is needed for sensitive medical testing instruments, space satellites designed to detect cosmic radiations, etc.

We don't need fire brigade, we can fly vertically


P.S. about cable the ripper

(Many people have died from the cable which hooked to the plane)
