А вот С-130 действительно садился и взлетал с палубы.
A USMC KC-130F Hercules aboard USS Forrestal (CVA 59) in October 1963. This aircraft conducted several landings and takeoffs, without the use of arresting wires, catapults or RATO/JATO, to test the possibility of using C-130s as Carried Onboard Delivery (COD) aircraft. The trials were successful, but the C-130 could not be accommodated in a carrier's hangar and could not land without disrupting flight operations, so the concept was abandoned.

A U-2 reconnaissance aircraft aboard the carrier America (CVA 66). After landing and takeoff trials, U-2s were operationally employed from carrier decks, although on a very limited basis, to conduct recon flights in areas that would otherwise be inaccessible
