Hmmmm... interesting... assuming that the news account was counting from the 1st avail snag, I'd say he was pretty much out of wires...

From CNN: The jet made what is known as a "tailhook" landing in which the plane, traveling about 150 mph, hooked onto one of four steel wires across the flight deck and came to a complete stop in less than 400 feet. (emphasis added)

It doesn't say he caught the #4 wire, note. Anyone see a source that SPECIFICALLY mentions a trap on the 4th wire???
