Well deserved. Thank you for your skill and bravery and, as an aside, for saving that very expensive plane. Didn't look like there was a chance to pull that plane out of that fall.

Yeeeooowwwwzzzaaa !! Great skill and Navy's adverse flight conditions training kicking in. It would be interesting to know how close to the edge of stall the aircraft got as the AC was "cleaning it up" to gain speed & altitude.
