C-130 Hercules Carrier Landing Trials on USS Forrestal 

Look Ma’, no hook!

How the hell do they get her back up?? Rocket pods?

The crew made 29 touch-and-go landings, 21 unarrested full-stop landings, and 21 unassisted takeoffs at gross weights of 85,000 pounds up to 121,000 pounds. Lockheed’s only modifications to the original plane included installing a smaller nose-landing gear orifice, an improved anti-skid braking system. No arresting hook or catapult needed.
