    The Hermes from WW2. Note the droop of the Deck. Either sagging from a structural failure or designed to help flyers from tripping over the edge. I would think that it would create additional problems for the flyer.

      Did you know that HMS Hermes is the only aircraft carrier witin non commercial dive limits? She is just off the coast of Sri Lanka.

      I think the droop is to give them a better chance on landing, the fact that modern carriers don't have this feature might be a sign
      Next time someone points out it takes 42 muscles to frown, point out it will only take 4 muscles to b1tch slap them if they tell you how mnay muscles you need to smile:pop
