Approach and landing of a U.S. Navy T2J-1 Buckeye trainer aircraft. The plane flying over clouds. Let down: The pilot extends the speed brakes, experiences nose up pitch, changes longitudinal trim, and dumps excess fuel. Diagrammatic representation of approach procedure including speed, angle, power and descend of aircraft. The pilot extends speed brakes, reduces power, slows down, extends gear and flaps, slows down on the downwind leg, adjusts power and goes over the landing check off list. He commences turn off, establishes angle and approaches the runway. He then takes a wave off: smoothly applies full power, retracts speed brakes, rolls into wing level attitude, accelerates to safe flying speed and flies parallel to the duty runway. Landing: The pilot holds aircraft speed and attitude, descends to deck, touches down and reduces power to idle. He applies aerodynamic braking by holding the nose wheel off runway. Touches the nose wheel down, uses rudder to maintain directional control, applies brakes, slows to normal taxi, retracts speed brakes, opens canopy and returns to the line. The pilot raises the canopy after a complete standstill. The plane captain at the wheels, removes the 3 landing gear safety pins. Once he gives the signal, the pilot turns off the power control, engine master, and DC power control switches. He then turns off all electrical equipment, removes oxygen mask, shuts off oxygen shut off and fuel shut off valves. The pilot and co-pilot descend from the aircraft and walk away.
