Pretty interesting. Not sure what happened at 0:10 or 01:30 when it seems like everyone and everything on deck froze for what must have been 10 or 15 hours in real time.

Nicely done.  I liked the FOD sweep around 1:40.

Nice to see the V-22 in action.

Those things set off car alarms when they fly over my town.

Indeed.  I wondered if that would show.

Indeed, I get those buggers (and Chinooks) coming over mine every weekend. You can hear them coming 5 miles out

Could you explain what that was about?

Foreign Object Damage walkdown - that line of guys standing shoulder-to-shoulder walking down the flight deck making sure there isn't a stray bolt sitting around that can get sucked into an engine intake and ruin everyone's day.

That was terrible.  Two minutes of runway drying set to C-grade generic drama music.

Oneof my best friends is a crew chief on those (he has kept my ass out of harm's way in planes many times). You don't want to know....really scary shiat as far as what holds them together and more importantly, what it takes to get them to pass inspection.

/no thanks

Interesting what time lapse can do; in real time Ospreys look more like fire-flies...

You mean the moving shadows from stationary objects? Remember that camera is only fixed with respect to the ship, not the Earth.

Very dramatic music for such a boring video.

Never heard of FOD and want to learn more?

\Auditor just wrote us up for FOD this week. So I am getting a kick, etc.

I chuckled at first thinking they did it because the Ospreys had come in, but then decided it was just routine. But I would have thought it was done several times a day, did the time lapse only catch it once?

Pretty interesting video until it skipped and played about 40 seconds of itself over and then never finished.  I wanted to know what happened after the $4mil catastrophic engine failure.

Yeah I know. Sorry I didn't give the heads up. It isn't my video. I never found the complete version of that. I show it to people as part of my FOD training at work. It does a good job of explaining the basics and when it screws up I go to my powerpoint to finish.

Nah, I was biatching how either COX CABLE is intentionally farking with YouTube (https://www.google.com/search?q=isp+throttling+youtube ) or how Google can't figure out how to stream anymore.  YouTube for me (and Google Play Music) are almost unusable for me (and many others), as the streams constantly freeze.

These days to watch most anything on YouTube on COX CABLE I have to have a youtube downloader download it and then I can watch it in VLC.

The evidence that it's Google's problem is that no one has ever witnessed this freezing occurring on a YouTube advertisement, just in the video you want to watch.

So as a joke that's why I said that it seemed that they must've frozen in place for like 15 hours of real time.

I was never in the military or in aviation, but we have a ton of aerospace firms in my town such as Barden, Raytheon, Goodrich, and more than a couple others in the surrounding area.  I have a couple of friends who work on building turbine parts with insanely low tolerances at incredible cost to the US government.  It's crazy to think what a little bit of debris can do to something so sensitive.  How the hell do they get stuff like that to stay in the air in the desert with all that dust?
