    Default Any non-fighter aircraft that have a tailhook?

    I have no real-world aviation experience, but since you would be the people to know, I posted here.

    Do you know of any non-fighter jet type plane that has carrier landing capabilities, such as the E-2 Hawkeye?

    ANY plane that lands on a carrier, not counting helicopters, has a tailhook. The S3-A, S2 Greyhound, etc. Any plane that's designed for a carrier landing. They also have the beefed up landing gear and airframe required to trap aboard the boat.
    Not the MV-22, of course. It lands like a helicopter onboard a carrier.

    Does this answer your question?

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!
