I just watched Transformer - Revenge of the Fallen
That's a really nice show~~!
Never loved a show so-so much....!
In the show, you can see lots of war planes flying beautifully in the sky.
These aircrafts taking off from aircraft carrier:
When you watched the war plane take off from the aircraft carrier, did you notice the tiny human on the left that wore a yellow shirt in the photo below?
I think this is one of the toughest job in the world.
They are the flight deck crews.
Who has to assist in the taking off and landing of the war planes?
They risked their lives to get sucked into the fight jet engine every time a jet takes off or landed.
They have to fully assist to navigate the planes to position itself.
They have to help to monitor the pressure precisely in the catapult cylinders, so that the plane can take off while the carrier is not being harmed by the deadly pressure.
This steam pressure can rocket the plane from the speed of 0 to 165 miles/hour in 2 seconds! Imagine the crews have to work in such high temperature steam .. it is so-so dangerous.
They have to wear heavy thick protective uniform and work under the perspiring hot sun everyday.
Their uniform is heavy because they have to wear so many layers of clothes plus safety jacket.
They sweat so much and yet cannot take off their sauna-like uniform until off duty.
Some of them developed skin disease due to long hours of sweat.
When the plane takes off, the noise can deafen their ears even with ear-plugs worn!
The explosion from jet exhausts emit dangerous radiations TOO ....
I salute those who work as the deck crew.
It is such a difficult job.
I also salute the whole team of movie makers of this show ...
Even though they may have earned tons of money...
But all belongs to their intelligence of work, and lots of hard works too.
(support original movie :) protect the intelligent property ... heh heh!)
There are also some other tough jobs that I respect a lot.
Like those who mould the future generation:
