F-18 Pulls Up At The Last Minute To Avoid Smashing Sailors

Aside from a bad can of beans, an F/A-18E jet about to land on top of you is the easiest way to shit your pants in the Navy. Last month these clueless sailors were almost vaporised.

Luckily, DefenseTech explains, the pilot was informed that there were dudes in his path and was able to abort his landing just in time — it would have been a very messy day of scrubbing the deck otherwise. [DefenseTech]
