Is it common for C130 to land at an aircraft carrier tho? I thought it never exists

#6

That’s a B52 bomber… Not a C130

#7

It’s very rare to see USAF bombers and cargo planes to land on aircraft carrier.

#8

I don’t see one cargo plane in these pictures

Only C130 can fit unless you can trap a F-15 or F-16 with the net(the one that would use to stop an aircraft when it miss the arrested wire). Also, can a naval aircraft take off from the runway of an aircraft carrier other than the catapult?

#13

The runway on an aircraf carrier is too short for most aircraft (excluding helicopters) so the catapult is a must use.

#14

It’s the only thing that can allow aircraft to takeoff in most cases. The only aircrafts I can think of that can use the full runway would be the Skyraider but it was retired. I don’t know any other fix wing aircraft that would use a full runway other than catapult. Maybe even F-14 or A-7 Corsair II(which I’m not sure)

#15

You know a lot about these things! Do you by any chance know the length of a runway on the aircraft carrier?

#16

I never know those information but I would guess it’s about 700 meters.
