Why US Tried the Most Dangerous Landing Ever Made on an Aircraft Carrier



Welcome back to the FLUCTUS channel for a feature of the most extreme landing operations at sea, and how modern technology and human innovation have challenged pilots to land and take off from the most demanding runways, like amphibious assault ships, makeshift dirt runways and drastically shortened landing zones in the middle of the sea.




The guy who landed the C-130 on the Forrestal was actually an F-4 Phantom pilot. It was decided that it would be easier to teach a Phantom pilot with lots of carrier trap experience to fly a Herky bird than to teach a Herky Bird pilot with no carrier experience to trap on an aircraft carrier!
