THE GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE Monday Evening, April 2, 1945 Planes Not Below Deck During Carrier Landings and Takeoffs Elevator Moves Ships to 'Garage' or Brings Up Fresh Ones; Flight Deck Always Crowded Hy ERNIE I'VEE IN THE WESTERN PACIFIC ( Delayed ) The main thins I never understood about how an aircraft carrier operates, is what they did with all the rest of the planes while one was landing or taking off. I had thought the flight deck had to lie entirely clear of planes. I thought that ns soon ns - f - - - barrier is dropped, the plane ROOM AND BOARD Bv Gene Ahern AND one loeK oil, jney uiouhiu me next one up from the lower deck hy elevator, and sent it off. It isn't th.fl Ernie fyle w a y a t all. There are always idle planes standing on deck during landinfis a n d takeotls. There liavc to be, for the hangar deck below isn't bis enoufili to hold all the planes. Hut these idle planes are never along the side of the deck they are at one rnrl or the other. Here's how it's done: Planes always take off and always land from stern to bow of the ship or from rear to forward as you simple landlubbers would say. J'arkrd at Hear For the takeoff, all the planes are parked tiuhtly tuuether at the lear of the di'dc. All have folding wins, which has been one of the great contributions to thi war. Without them a carrier could hardly carry enough planes to juMily itself. These parked planes t.ike up maybe one-eighth ' of the Might fleck the rear one-eighth. When they get ready to launch planes, all the engines are .stalled and warmer! up wnne the planes are still parked tightly together The noise is terrific. Angry propellers whirl within inches of the tail of the next ship, "1'" by the doen crawl around, under, and among the-e flying propellers, adjusting chocks nnd untying the lines that hold the l;.nr; down. When they are ready, the center Diane in the front row is t.i,vie;l out a few fret. Mis folded wings are unfolded. The pilot tests his controls, puis down hi,-; llap-;. A signalman standing and to the right of him indicates by motions when lie is to start, lie holds on his brakes, speeds up hi-' engine until the now is ear-splitting, and then the signalman leans over and rli amatic.iily swings his arm forward, as though personally to give the plane impetus. The plane starts rolling. Th" deck behind him is packed with planes. Hut the seven-eighths of deck in front is clear. Not a plane or man on it. One Follows Another No soonyr has one plane gone than the next one is ready, has his wings unfolded, and is innning up his engine. They take off one right after the other, less than a minute apart, until the whole flight is in the air. - j The moment the last plane of the flight is oif, a klaxon signals the fact, and the ureal flight deck instantly becomes a swarm of men. Usually there are several planes left on deck, which weren't sched uled to go. All these are immediately towed to the forward end of the deck, and icpaiked there. For, when the planes come back to land, they must use that rear end of the deck. While (hey are ; landing, the whole lront end of the deck is full of parked planes. A barrier of steel cables, sti etched head-high acioss the deck, stops any wild-landing plane from crashing into the bunch of tightly parked ships ahead. As soon as a plane lands, the taxies over it, and the harrier is raised again for the next guy coming in. The plane Ihat has just landed is parked among t tie other inert ones up front, and the pilot shuts off his engine. When the last plane is down, the klaxon squawks, all the men rush out, and all the planes are towed back to the rear of the deck, ready for the next takeoff. I'nused DurinK Land inn Almost never, during actual landing of the planes, is the elevator let down. It is used only between flights, to take planes down to the "garage" or bring up fresh ones. This moving of planes from one end of the flight deck to the other is called "re-snott ing." It goes on all day long back and forth, back and forth. The planes are pulled by tiny Fordson tractors. As thi v run around they look like these little electric cars you bump each other with at carnivals. At night, probably two-thirds of the planes are ".spotted" on deck. They are paiked tightly together, and tied down to gratings in the flight deck by heavy rope. If We're sailing in'o a :toim. they're tied additionally wi'h steel cable. And all night long men are posted among them, to see'th nothing breaks or goes wrong. Despite .-ill this, there have been times when the ocean was so rough and the deck careening at J such a steep angle, that plane I would break all their moorings and go screeching fiver the side. That would be when I was down in my cabin, verv seasick. P f F ,Pi i r T ' Tul- 0 1 i-.F'i V-1.M OUT I 1 T THAT oORilLA IN 7mi- f i 'i . in r I w va t m 7 1 w i ' V 'Ar.tTl.rp, IT'S Apr P OP NOT.'
