I also seem to remember that the Israeli F-15 that landed safely after having a wing torn off used its tail hook. Canadian CF-18s also have a tail hooks even though Canada has no aircraft carriers, but that can likely be at least partially explained by the fact that the 18 is a carrier aircraft and they might as well leave the hooks on 'em and just install arresting wires on their airfields rather than deleting a safety feature from the aircraft to save a few bucks. Pilots are expensive after all.
