I can only admire the way those brave young men stayed cool & calm enough to fight to save their ship &, in the face of incredible odds, to succeed.

Same here

That's why I shared it and to show what happens when everything that can go wrong does, but the crew manages to save the ship, unlike HMIJNS Taiho.

I wonder if that was because of superior training and also more than likely all her damage was from the top down, rather than from the bottom up (and Franklin  had her watertight doors closed) and so the Franklin's hull was intact, whereas the Taiho's wasn't?

Aircraft Carriers- From Kite Carriers to Conversions (1800-1930)[/url


Fascinating, but where does the '5 minute' bit come from? It's a 45 min vid, but well worth watching.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

He'll do a 5 minute video, more or less, on a specific ship.  His extended videos are usually suggested videos, and on something like the development of a class of ships, he'll break it out into multiple extended videos
