Video: Lap Around the Boat

Here's some footage taken via a helmet-mounted video camera worn by the pilot of a Navy T-45 jet trainer as it is catapulted from an aircraft carrier's deck and then circles around to land again on the carrier. This is called "taking a lap."

The carrier is CVN-77 GHW Bush

The "A" on the tail of the T-45 denotes it as a CNATRA (Chief of Naval Air Training) aircraft. CVN-77 was hosting CNATRA in April.

Great vid.
