    This is probably more suited to the military forum, but I think its more of interest here.

    This is concept, but its gaining momentum.

    "...The development of a removable amphibious float modification for an MC-130J would enable "runway independent" operations, which, according to Trantham, would extend the global reach and survivability of the aircraft and Air Commandos. "Seaborne operations offer nearly unlimited water landing zones providing significant flexibility for the Joint Force," Trantham said..."

    More here...

    Who doesn't love sea planes though. Making it a reality isn't going to be plane sailing though, (couldn't resist).
