30,000-pound Northrop Grumman aircraft

They stripped that one down quite a bit. Empty weight on an operational model is 42,000lbs. Max Cat Shot 76,000lbs (that hurts), Max Trap 54,000lbs (unless you were on the U.S.S. America).

Let me take a guess ... the weight for trapping on the America was substantially lower because they were afraid that the aircraft would end up on the hanger deck without having to use the elevators, right?
