An old unloaded C130 landing on the longest carrier at the time. Impressive sure, but not actually practical.

Nowadays, think something more like a C17 with something like an abrams in it's belly.

"The Hercules holds the record for the largest and heaviest aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier.[12] In October and November 1963, a USMC KC-130F (BuNo 149798), loaned to the US Naval Air Test Center, made 29 touch-and-go landings, 21 unarrested full-stop landings and 21 unassisted take-offs on the USS Forrestal at a number of different weights.[13] The pilot, LT (later RADM) James H. Flatley III, USN, was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his role in this test series. The tests were highly successful, but the idea was considered too risky for routine "Carrier Onboard Delivery" (COD) operations. Instead, the C-2 Greyhound was developed as a dedicated COD aircraft.

We've been going to run out of oil in the next 50 years for the last 50 years.

This thread smells heavily of nationalism.

If you watch the whole video you will see that they explain that it is possible to do with cargo on the plane. Also OLD? Most C-130's today ARE old. We haven't built one in AGES and they are STILL one of the main workhorses of the airforce. And as for the carrier, we have built 10 nimitz class carriers since which are even larger. Its completely possibly we just don't do it because we don't need to. Just sayin...

I'm well aware of aircraft, i grew up in a lockheed engineer's home. The video was from 1963, and the only time they ever did those landings was during those tests in '63. Neat video I'll give you that, but now-a-days we need to put tanks and heavy machinery on the ground, and we use C17s for that.
