I hope Gen. Bogdan never farts in public. He will never be able to apologise and will probably lose his job for wrinkling the noses of someone in the room.

F-35 Manager’s ‘Humor’ No Pilot Slam 04 Apr 2013 By Tony Capaccio (Should be 01 April)
"...His words on the program’s progress and problems are parsed internationally by allies, agnostics and opponents — maybe too closely in the case of some slightly cocky remarks he made March 12 at a defense analyst conference...."

There is info on AAG on previous page and this is the most recent thread with it mentioned so here is a good graphic. The explanation about how it works would be elsewhere. http://www.navair.navy.mil/img/uploads/AAG%20system.jpg

Advanced Arresting Gear achieves significant milestone
18 Nov 2019 NavAir

"JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. -- The Navy’s newest aircraft recovery system, Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG), successfully completed the system’s most demanding test event to date with 22 aircraft arrestments in just over 26 minutes at the Runway Arrested Landing Site (RALS) in Lakehurst, New Jersey.

The two-day series of testing Oct. 23-24 evaluated the AAG thermal management system’s ability to remove excess heat generated during fast-paced flight operations as experienced aboard the aircraft carrier to validate the system’s capability to meet USS Gerald R. Ford’s (CVN 78) operational requirements.

“This never-before accomplished test event was effectively executed with herculean efforts by a collaborative program office-fleet team,” said Capt. Ken Sterbenz, Aircraft Launch and Recovery Equipment (PMA-251) program manager.
In addition to AAG team personnel from PMA-251, Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst and industry partner General Atomics, the testing involved five F/A-18E/F Super Hornets and 25 maintainers from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 8, six pilots from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 and two Sailors from CVN 78.

“This achievement represents a significant datapoint for AAG performance as experienced at our single engine land-based site,” said Sterbenz. “I’m highly confident with AAG going into CVN 78 Aircraft Compatibility Testing early next year where the full, three-engine recovery system configuration will be utilized.”

The U.S. Navy has made significant progress in maturing the latest carrier-based launch and recovery technologies – the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) and AAG system. As of September 2019, the EMALS test program has completed more than 3,800 dead-loads, or weighted sleds, and over 530 aircraft launches at the System Functional Demonstration test site. The AAG test program has completed more than 2,600 dead-load arrestments at the Jet Car Track Site and over 1,570 aircraft arrestments at RALS. These three land-based test facilities are located at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey.

CVN 78 is the U.S. Navy’s most technologically advanced aircraft carrier and the first to deploy AAG and EMALS. To date, she has successfully executed 747 sorties. The next phase of CVN 78 flight operations is slated for early 2020, which will include the first shipboard operations with the T-45C Goshawk, E-2C/D Advanced Hawkeye and EA-18G Growler, in addition to expanding the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet’s launch and recovery envelopes.
