Your ability to capture these planes in mid-flight is quite impressive!

I remember this plane. One of these was involved in a collision that destroyed the Akutan Zero.

LSO KNOWN AS THE SON-OF-A-BITCH SECOND CLASS; As it was not popular with the pilots that flew it.  I much prefer the "Diving Dauntless"  Helped us win The Battle of Midway, which destroyed the Japanese.

Riding in the back seat must be quite the experience. With the canopy rolled forward and the "turtle back" lowered...it must feel like you're flying without the aircraft.
