Can an aeroplane actually reverse?

Most commercial airplanes cannot do a reverse like a car.Bet you didn't know that huh.That is why whenever you see a plane at the airport, there is always a small little car helping the aircraft to "push back". However aircraft like a Military C-130 can reverse by itself as shown in the video. They are normally use as a transport aircraft by the military landing in adverse condition runway for combat or rescue mission. This video is taken during the Butterworth Royal Malaysian Air Base open day last Saturday 6 Nov
