A FOUL DECK WAVEOFF while you're BINGO on the BALL.


For those of you who understand what the Title of today's blog represents; you'll understand my feelings today. For those of you who have no idea what the title represents....I'll explain. At any given time on an aircraft carrier, the flight deck has a status. That status can be a "clear deck" or a "foul deck". A "clear deck" refers to no obstructions or people in the flight deck area, therefore allowing a "safe" landing. A "foul deck" refers to the opposite. What can cause that situation? Many things, namely the guy who landed in front of you taking too long to get out of the landing area (LA) or someone accidentally stepping into the LA just prior to your landing. These situations usually initiate what is called a "Foul Deck Waveoff". During a waveoff, you go to full power and fly away causing another attempt to land. A VERY frustrating scenario most times. Now, "Bingo on the Ball" means you have just enough fuel to attempt one landing. If you land safely aboard....SWEET!! If something should cause you to not be able to land on that attempt; you have to divert to the nearest suitable airfield (with just enough fuel to make it there). That scenario will raise the stress level of even the most seasoned of Naval Aviators. So as you can see; a foul deck waveoff while you're bingo on the ball is a double kick in the n*&ts.

I'm one day away from leaving for my last interim stops, before heading to the sandbox. So the stress level is peaking and the frustration is high. The big issues are, "Did I take care of all the things I needed to do?" and "Is my family going to be okay?"....Very similar to, "Did I turn off the iron?" and "Did I just rip the ass out of my pants?". You guys understand.

So, I'll be headed to Ft Jackson, SC for a little "Arrrrmmmmyyyy Training, Sir!" From what I'm told, it's synonymous with Boot Camp for Dummies. Hence the photo above....I know, I know...that's a Marine Drill Instructor and I'm going to work with the Army. Being a former Marine and such makes old habits die hard. I figure in the picture above, the drill instructor is telling that recruit, "Wow, green really looks nice with your eyes" or some other very constructive compliment.

Over the next few weeks my posts may be lacking with all the travel involved. I'll keep the posts coming as much as possible and once I'm settled, expect more pics and info.

Are you sure it was a Foul Deck Waveoff and not your extrememly underpowered condition that got you a trip to the beach? Fair Winds and Flowing Sands brother. Janus

Love the post and comment.

Well, if it was a day trap you can see the LSO with the pickle up in the air. With night traps all bets are off because it might be a little bit "sporty" in the cockpit.

Hello .. firstly I would like to send greetings to all readers. After this, I recognize the content so interesting about this article. For me personally I liked all the information. I would like to know of cases like this more often. In my personal experience I might mention a book called Generic Viagra in this book that I mentioned have very interesting topics, and also you have much to do with the main theme of this article.
