In 1983 a Royal Navy pilot landed his Sea Harrier fighter jet on a container ship when he got lost during a training exercise. The ship completed its journey 4 days later and the plane was returned to service. The ship’s crew and owners filed a salvage claim and were awarded some £570,000 ($1.14 million at the time) as compensation for the “rescue.”
