You'll like this one Norman.
This has been around once, but in case you missed it...

This is very unnerving, landing with deck pitching 30 feet, at night, low on
fuel.  Incredible.  You will never forget viewing this.  I have seen a lot
of aviation emails but the two videos below are undoubtedly the best.  Turn
on your sound and go full screen.  I guarantee this will definitely hold
your attention.

These videos show the difference between Naval Aviation and any other kind.
The links below are two outstanding videos about F-18 carrier operations
aboard the USS Nimitz during weather that causes a severely pitching deck,
which you can see in the videos.  It's more dangerous than most combat
missions and the tension in the pilots and crew is very apparent. Watch Part
1 first.  Great videos
