Non-VSTOL using short strips (MOS), temporary matting and temporary arrestor gear is nothing new. This picture was taken 30 years ago in a little place called the Port Stanley Airport in the Falkland Islands...

Plus, check out the SCL! Stanley Airport is about 3,000ft long and F18E/F has bags more SEP, lift and capability!
