C-130 Carrier landings

Recommended Posts

29 touch and go's and 21 unassisted take offs and landings    On the side of the C-130 was painted "Look Ma, No Hook".  The inability to fold the wings and store the plane below decks was supposedly the biggest reason for the US Navy not adopting the C-130 as it COD (carrier onboard delivery) plane.

Wonder how the pilots were able to fit in the seat?

Must have been a tight fit, because of the size of the ballz they had.........
