I would love to see this from the carrier's perspective. Sand... more sand... FIGHTER JET!
They don't pay those guys enough.
I'd imagine most fighter pilots applied for the job because they get to be fighter pilots.
I agree, although if you listen to the current administration and DoD, they get paid too much and need a pay cut.
Praise to the crew on the flight deck! Standing out in a sandstorm can't be fun.
