HOW THEY WORK: Prior to making an "arrested landing", the pilot lowers the hook so that it will
contact the deck as the aircraft wheels touch down. The hook then drags along the surface until an arresting cable which
is stretched across the landing area is captured. The cable lets out, transferring the force of the landing aircraft
to the arresting gear through the cable to large dampeners below deck. A "trap" is often-used slang for an arrested landing.
An aircraft which lands beyond the arresting cables is said to have "boltered" Occasionally, the tail hook bounces over one
or more of the wires, resulting in a "hook skip bolter."
