"The United States Navy operates some of the most capable planes ever to fly off the deck of a ship. But not every effort aimed at parking advanced aircraft on 4.5 acres of floating "Sovereign American territory" has resulted in success. In fact, Uncle Sam has tried to stick just about every fighter developed over the past 50 years on carrier duty… not to mention a spy plane or two.

Believe it or not, a number of planes you'd never have imagined have actually landed and taken off from the decks of American carriers, including the legendary U-2 Dragon Lady spy plane and even the absolutely massive C-130 Hercules!…"

Wow. The C-130 flew on and off the carrier with a full load like it was nothing. No hook, no catapult.

That could certainly come in handy one day.
