The way everything bends and moves has always amazed me.....I've worked Structural Test F22, and toured the Boeing Structural test area, truly impressive stuff! Those airliner wings bend ALOT! I dont remember my first flight, but my most memorable was being shot off the deck of CV-43, twice. It was in a COD, but still cool. We were seated facing backwards. The second time was one of the last cat-shots for the old girl, we were returning from her last Med Cruise in 1988....she was mothballed and scrapped soon after.
