I'm not sure, from the VC on short final it was looking like the approach angle was a little low, but should touchdown about the rear deck elevator. The landing wasn't looking perfect, but good enough that I didn't "take the wave off" & go around. Hit the deck and pieces started flying. It dropped down on the belly and slid up to where it's at in the pic (the bow was starting to look awful close as I was sliding towards it).
I've been having issues with the Seafire and the MAAM CVL anyway. Touch down between the rear elevator and the stern and it automatically crashes. So, I've been landing a little long onto the second group of wires forward of the elevator. But I took off from there this morning and flew on to Hong Kong where I landed on the USS Lexington in the harbor with no problems.
