“U.S. Navy pilot Lieutenant Frank Akers performed the first blind landing aboard an aircraft carrier on July 30, 1935. He flew his OJ-2, equipped only with standard instruments from the San Diego Naval Air Station to the USS Langley, and landed without a hitch on the flight deck. He never saw the flight deck because of a special hood that was used for this occasion. He successfully snagged the number 4 arrestor wire.”
