During the previous few days, we had conducted MOVLAS
recoveries because of 40-foot swings in the deck.
The entire situation also was completely avoidable, from the decision to rig MOVLAS
, to the CATCC rep checking on tankers and winds aloft, to the man in the cockpit "backing up the bingo numbers.
Last, this recovery was one of the air wing's first night MOVLAS
recoveries since our cruise.
