P-38J on a stationary escort carrier. Moving carriers is easy.

One of the hardest I tried to land on a carrier was the Me 163.Got lucky once although I broke the landing skid so it plunge forward hit the wing and did a 180 and stopped.Otherwise I would have gone overboard as those other 1000 attempts.More an accident than a real landing I guess.No picture though,and no picture it never happend I guess and way to lazy to reattempt it for now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Somewhere out there is a video someone made of themselves landing some insane planes on carriers. Can't find a link.

As part of a feasability test the Navy landed a Marine Corps C-130 on the USS Forrestal in 1963.

"And so it was, on 8 October, that the Navy received the KC-130F refueling tanker (BuNo 149798) on loan from the USMC. Prior to the tests, Lockheed had modified the plane by installing an anti-skid braking system, removing the underwing refueling pods, and adding a smaller nose gear orifice. The aircraft carried a crew of four: LT James Flatley as pilot, LCDR W. "Smokey" Stovall as copilot, ADR1 Ed Brennan as flight engineer, and Lockheed test pilot Ted Limmer. Another crewman participating in the tests was Al Sieve who's involvement went unrecognized until he recieved a medal in July 2004. Sieve was a chief petty officer who served as crew chief to insure that cargo was properly loaded for safe operations from the carrier deck. Some sources also indicate that Sieve was a flight engineer who replaced Ed Brennan on certain test flights.

Initial flight testing began on 30 October when the C-130 made its first landing on the Forrestal into a 40-knot wind. Helping to guide the C-130 along the deck was a special dashed centerline, visible in the above image. Even with this line, however, the aircraft's wingtip cleared the carrier's island control tower by less than 15 ft (4.6 m).

Perhaps one of the most amazing accomplishments of the plane was described by Lockheed pilot Ted Limmer, who had qualified test pilot LT Flatley to fly the C-130. "The last landing I participated in, we touched down about 150 feet from the end, stopped in 270 feet more and launched from that position, using what was left of the deck. We still had a couple hundred feet left when we lifted off. Admiral Brown was flabbergasted." LT Flatley was eventually awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross by the Navy for his participation in the test program. Stovall, Brennan, and Sieve each received Air Medals."

Quick question: Does it have to be a Carrier?

J8 on the back of a moving destroyer. http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/2218/skisdz2.jpg

Or, If it has to be on an aircraft carrier, A P-38 on a stationary escort carrier. http://img237.imageshack.us/img237/3739/escortcarrierbr4.th.jpg (http://img237.imageshack.us/my.php?image=escortcarrierbr4.jpg)

A few years back, there was a video of a Seafire taking off into a loop and landing right back on the carrier.

(Me163) This was weird. When my landing skid came off I no-longer slid down the length of the carrier and off the end. I just stopped there and my pilot's eyeballs were flung out of his head. It was the forth try, no fuel or ammo, from 700 meters alt.
