    Yeah, it landed OK. Thanks to the lift generating properties of the Eagle airframe/intakes, and one hell of a pilot.

    Yeah, Chief. It's got plenty of speed, but it sure takes a lot of roll trim to keep it level.

    I read the pilot's report on this incident. He could keep it wings (wing?) level if he maintained about 200 KIAS. Tail hook came off on landing but that was the only additional damage.

    Tailhook on an F15??!?!!?!?!

    "Tailhook on an F15?"
    Yep, along with the F-16, F-117, and F-22, to keep the planes on the runway (equipped with arrester cables) in case of emergency. There were fantasies of even navalizing the F-16 for carrier use. The '117 and '22 hooks are hidden under plates to preserve stealth.

    "Tailhook on F-15?"
    I read that the US Navy is thinking about making an F-15N Seagle to launch from aircraft carriers to replace the F-14s
    Oh, and theres a video of this, mostly reenacted.
