Where can you find information on carrier aircraft service unit thirteen which served in admiralty islands in the pacific?
"The landing system on an aircraft carrier can stop a 54,000 pound airplane traveling at 150 mph in two seconds." Also, the aircraft carrier is often moving away from the landing aircraft (allowing a greater true air speed for the landing airplane.) Suppose the aircraft carrier is going 15 mph, then the 54,000 pound aircraft can land at a true airspeed of 165 mph.
CVW stands for Carrier Air Wing. It is the designation used for the aircraft assigned to an aircraft carrier for a deployment. It is composed of aircraft from a number of different types of squadrons. The CVW has a commanding officer that works in conjunction with the Carrier CO to conduct the mission of the carrier.
