Default C-130 carrier launch.

Being a fan of the book, I made it to see World War Z last night. I enjoyed the movie, could have done without the 3D, though.

There is a carrier launch of a C-130 in the film which I assumed was total fiction. But to my surprise a quick Internet search showed that the feat was old hat. Just curious as to how impressive that was and would be to replicate?
