    Just saw this clip on youtube:


    YouTube - ??-33 ???????? ????? ?? ???????


    Simply AWESOME. I wouldn't have believed it if I haven't seen it. And what's even more awesome is that SU-33 don't sport engines with thrust vectoring. Amazing piloting skills and an amazing plane combo avoid a disaster.

    I like to think he did that on purpose.

    Yes that was pretty cool. Good piloting skills indeed.

    Ugh, he'd had to be mentaly unstable in that case. You can't show off on russian carriers. They are not spacious as US, and mistakes are almost always deadly.

    I'm willing to bet this happens all the time. Human error and all.

    Cool video though.

    Whew, not like that. Most of the time a "failed" landing is going to be a bolt. They miss the catch cable and just keep going. An aborted landing going into a climb like that is likely a once and only happening and whomever was piloting is would either be a hero or court-marshaled.

    It was going to Transform, but then he realized it was the wrong carrier.

    Can't disagree with you, only I would assume that aborted landings happen occasionally. Nice to know that a landing like that is somewhat unique.

    Did the pilot abort the landing at the last minute and pulled up to quickly? Or was it a sharp updraft that caused the plane to pitch up?

    My gawd how gnarly that would have been if it caught the cable...

    Belly-flop if it had. No way the gear would have held up to that kind of force.

    But I wonder what went wrong here? I don't know enough about jets to figure out why he aborted when he did.

    Don't pilots get graded on every landing? How do you even begin to grade that? F for attempt, A+ for not killing himself/ruining a multi-million dollar jet/damaging a multi-billion dollar carrier/killing crew members?

    My guess is that he was coming in too fast and was told to wave off but did so at the last minute, resulting in the "Cobra-esque climb. The SU-27 is naturally unstable in pitch and able to maintain control at low speed at extreme angles of attack. Factor that in with a sudden jerk of the joy stick, and the result is very similar to what is shown in that video.

    He realized the carrier was a POS and aborted.
