I can not see how a DC-9 could fit on a carriers catapult.

Quoting redflyer (Reply 2):
Fit on a catapult in what way? Do you mean the nose gear configuration?
No problem, use the oldschool solution = bridles, just like on the F-4.

IIRC there was a C-9 that was fitted with a tailhook, and I believe it is one of the ones sitting on the restoration lot at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. I am unsure if it ever actually landed on a carrier or not.
