  1. Considering that my current job focuses almost exclusively on multinational interoperability, I am torn between calling this a success and wondering what hidden pitfalls make this video a one-of-a-kind dog and pony show. Sure it is great to launch and trap, but can DeGaulle refuel and rearm US aircraft? Talk to them?

    1. Back on my ’07 deployment we spent some time operating with the DeGaulle. I know we played catch-and-release with some French planes (those pilots were rather polite. When we spent precious DI water to throw them off the ship, they rook the bloody hint), and I’m pretty sure some of our F/A-18’s landed on the ScrewLoose.
