Great shot, although why is the arresting hook not down on the aircraft? Or am I going blind?

A visitor from Uruguay posted Thu October 19, 2006:
Well, it is an impressive picture and apparently the carrier has just finished turning into the wind and the plane is on short final. maybe it's just the sea streams...
