Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) Recovers F/A-18E Super Hornet for the First Time

Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) completes a first-of-its-kind recovery of an F/A-18E Super Hornet at the Runway Arrested Landing Site in Lakehurst, N.J., Oct. 13. This event, conducted as part of AAG performance testing with the Super Hornet, follows more than 200 roll-in arrestments completed at the site since late March. The AAG test team conducted more than 1,300 dead-load arrestments on the Navy’s newest aircraft recovery system before involving manned aircraft.
