I see them do that almost every day. That's CF-02, the second carrier variant here at Pax.

What a sled! It looks like a damn S-3 compared to that F-18, and we already knew the F-18 was a sled.

And did anyone else seriously noticed that only like 3 people cheered and clapped in that video?! They were all probably Lockheed execs. LMAO
