    ...my father-in-law was the safety officer when they were testing the Forrestal's catapults after she was completed and before she underwent shakedown. Two ton sleds launched into the East River, but I'll bet they wouldn't have been able to launch the C-130!

    I liked the nose art, too: "Look Ma. No Hook!"!
