RADM Carter was an NFO, watched over 2,000 traps from a short remove--the back seat of a Tomcat. Not quite the same as Winkle Brown.
Thanks for the correction! Didn't realize he was a 'FO. I got some bad gouge on the subject from one of those Academy ring knockers and overstated VADM Carter's achievement tremendously.

I still don't believe the one about the Air Force pilot getting 1600 traps before 'he lost his bottle [sic]'.
