OCF Over Spanish Skies by ProQuest


A quick look inside the cockpit showed that we had plenty of gas, with about 9,000 pounds remaining. Because of the lack of a "fuel tank pointed outboard" emergency procedure, I followed the "Leading Edge Flap Failed Up/Flaps Off" caution, not knowing whether the aircraft could fly at lower airspeeds. Unfortunately, the combination of no LSOs and a rusty rearseat "deck-spotting" technique resulted in floating over the arresting cable. Because of our lack of obvious deceleration, I immediately selected full afterburner and rotated to on-speed AOA.
