The Ark Royal's new angled flight deck and catapults allowed aircraft to land and take off at the same time - a major innovation.
Reports suggest the new aircraft carrier also boasts of a ski jump and angled flight deck to allow aircrafts to take off with greater ease.
It would also have been nice if the book had covered more of the history of some important technical innovations such as the steam catapult and angled flight deck.
The shift from piston-engine to turbojet aircraft and the value of the angled flight deck to carrier operations led to the three Midways undergoing major modifications.
Strikingly, the most important of these innovations--notably the angled flight deck, optical landing aid, and steam catapult--originated with the British, not the Americans.
At this time the Eagle had no angled flight deck. The Eagle and Ark Royal were not popular drafts as each with a crew of 2,600 cleared out all the barrack stanchions.
With no need to reset catapults after each launch a higher sortie rate of some 70 a day is generated and, because the aircraft can land vertically, they usually fly alongside the ship and then move across the flight deck to the landing spot, therefore do not require either an arrester system nor an angled flight deck.
