Wait, let me get this straight, "Denying them oil and raw materials they needed was the final straw. They simply "had no choice" but to bite the hand that no longer fed them." So we were denying them the materials they needed as they ravaged China? I had no idea that was an honorable reason to attack us, much like the Twin Towers. Very strange. I had no idea we had an obligation to provide anything to anybody, especially those terrorizing other countries. My Bad, I guess... Wait, what? There is no justification for the attack at Pearl Harbor, I don't care what your nationality is.
Garibaldi, that was on a different thread. This was on the Doolitle thread! Some members may think you did not went away from the Pearl Harbor posts too much... ...but good try anyway! Good way to save the day!It is always good to see another post with a link to a different video on the same topic I did about ten messages back...Thank you.
THRAWN, Despite the "surprise" element of the 2 attacks, PH and 9/11 were not at all similar. You might want to ask the families of the approximately 3000 dead in each attack about that.
I am sorry if my question created hard feelings, I will be more careful what I write in the future. I was only wondering if the USAF ever operated on aircraft carriers. Sorry.

Demonstrate critical thinking? Equating the point of the attacker to the point of the attacked? Very strange. So bullies are justified because they have a "point of view"? There is right, there is wrong. To attack another nation that is not attacking you is wrong. It doesn't matter what their point of view is.

OK, found some information about the C-130 test on the USS Forrestal. One of our former Sandy Springs members was a test pilot for this program. He made something like 29 touch and goes and 21 full-stop takeoffs and landings. All unassisted, meaning no catapult or arresting hook. Apparently, the distance between the island and the wings was very close so much attention had to be paid. Here is a link to a video of a takeoff and landing:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfwJJD5jGXkAnyway, tried to get this back on topic somewhat. Have a good day!*information credited to a GAWG CAP veterans site, administered by my unit historian.
There was a JAG episode that featured a Herc trapping on the SEAHAWK.
