Yep!, could be a killer if you ducked under the nose between the static blades.
I used to be the guy in yellow, but on the Stbd Cat on Victorious, not as here, Waist Cat on Ark Royal

Very nice work Jim.
We were told that the wings folded like that so that they could salute the Admiral on fly past.

Re. William Dillon's question - yes, only one engine initially on the Palouste starter. Once settled on the cat the second one was windmilled up by the first.

Thank you, Jim! Been there a few times and always profoundly grateful to the guys who handled us,

Mike
