Knowing with certainty exactly where the Space Craft is going to arrive is crucial.....and snatching 6000-7000 pounds will take large aircraft.....Blackhawk size or larger I would think.

You would need more than one....just in case the Recovery Aircraft developed a Snag that delays or prevents its take off.
