This is one of those legends that most don't believe. However, it is true. This experiment was done in the early 1960s to ascertain ... all » whether C-130 operations were feasible on a carrier. The margin of error was too close for comfort, and another option was developed; namely the C-2 Greyhound. This aircraft (147798) remained in service with the United States Marine Corps until (approx) 2003 as a KC-130 Aerial Refueling tanker (KC-130F). It saw service in Vietnam, and again during the Gulf War. I have a few hours in it.
