At 14,000 feet above the Laguna Army Airfield in Yuma, Arizona, military freefall parachutists jump out of the opened cargo compartment from the back of an Air Force Reserve Flying Jennies C-130J aircraft.
Don't fight a battle if you don't gain anything by winning.

C-130 Hall of Fame
Largest aircraft to land on a carrier
Used for carrier suitability trials on the USS Forrestal making 29 touch and goes, and 21 landings and unassisted takeoffs just off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida. The aircraft was being studied for use as a Carrier Onboard Delivery transport. The refueling pods were removed from the aircraft for the tests. This C-130 made history as the largest aircraft to land and take-off from an aircraft carrier but never became operational.
