that's what happens when you locate the tail hook too close to the jet exhaust! breaks down the metal quicker. poor design, really poor design.

I wonder if Phantoms suffered from tail hook metal fatigue ?

Also, I am amused by how little this thread has to do with Zero's and Hellcats so far  !  haha [biggrin]
I promise that will change in due course [wink]

Anyhow, for now, sod it, back to X-Wings, tail hooks and metal fatigues [biggrin]

Indeed Paul---everything but the matter most important, but we have had some fun with it. I am sure the real subject will be along soon to entertain us.
