Buying tailhook aircraft: billions of dollars. Training U.S. Naval and Marine Corps Aviators: millions more dollars. Bringing them back safely, priceless! Landing Signal Officers . . . don't leave homeport without them. This Aerocature salutes the Navy's LSOs, whose watchful eyes and experienced judgment guide carrier pilots back to successful landings on pitching carrier decks. It was created for the Tailhook Association's Tailhook Symposium. And the Latin? It translates to "Another buttock is not broken," a play on the LSO School's motto, "Rectum Non Bustus."
(This Aerocature was awarded 3rd place in the Military Aviation category at the 2017 International Aerospace Art Exhibition of the American Society of Aviation Artists.)
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
