These Videos Of Aeroplanes Launching From Aircraft Carriers Are Badass

These videos of aeroplanes launching from aircraft carriers are badass

Once again, the French Navy shows they make the best aeroplane videos there are. This one shows the flight deck operations onboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Charles DeGaulle. Although I would have preferred no soundtrack, it helps that, instead of using dubstep, they slapped in AC/DC's Thunderstruck.

Plus, I love the Rafale.

For comparison, here's a cool first person perspective video from a catapult topside petty officer onboard a US Navy aircraft carrier, launching F/A-18A/B Hornets, F/A-18C/D Super Hornets (Rhinos) and the EA-6B Prowler.

You will see that the catapult system is very similar, which is why American and French planes can operate from each other's carriers.
