really cool achievement, I'm struggling to land on a CV about 1.5* the size of yours at 60m/s, bloody difficult, lag doesn't help though. 

Thank you, and yes very difficult, I am using Sepratrons for stopping power, its working out well. Also I've have recently tested doing a Takeoff while the Aircraft Carrier was underway at nearly 40 m/s and it was a challenge to stay on deck without the craft sliding off. I also attempted to land with the Carrier still near 40 m/s but no luck yet. Maybe at a later date I haven't been getting as much Kerbal time as I use to lately.

I think I have an idea for taking off underway.  Use docking ports on plane and ship to hold plane in place,  open the throttles, wait until full power, undock, use RATO in place of a catapult. And don't forget to play danger zone in the background.

Thank you for the idea and the Danger Zone was the song that got blocked because of copy wrights, can't blame Mr. Kenny Loggins for that one!...lol. Believe it or not I went to school with his lead guitar player that is on tour with him, they have been together for a few years now. Also the craft with the afterburners at full throttle is taking off very nicely.

No, you can blame the blood-sucking lawyers from his record label that probably gets most of the royalties. :D

Awesome work tho. I tried at this for a couple hours the other day, with a much smaller, slower plane and even a joystick. Just kept bouncing off. images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTKNwYvVYsSSC8Y3rld4nS

Thank you! and I am sure I had about 35 or more bouncing, smashing, crashing attempts and most were Catastrophic Failures :D
