Gordon Bennett! The taxi director didn't have wands!
Looking out the window is too scary. I'd love to see the instruments. Maybe a radar display or perhaps an ACLS/needles gage. Did like the comment about the 747 crew: They are higher than we are, maybe they can see more. (paraphrased)
That's what I kept telling my pilot as we were hooked up to one of the forward catapults, night, IFR: "Hey, this is stupid".
Nobody listened, however. 'course, the only obstacle then was 70' below us:)
Arrgghhh! The memories come flooding back. 1966. Probably the same pool and the same, well maintained - of course - Dilbert Dunker. I didn't have to do the helo dunker (whew)! but did all the other survival things. Awful, fearful. The best training Navy Air has ☺
