That was an excellent clip of early Naval Aviation pioneering .. The USS Langley CV1 was a converted collier USS Jupiter .. they experimented with the basic's of carrier procedures and paved the way for our modern carrier navy.
Hi Doug,I enjoyed viewing the early Naval Aviation History you recently posted here;I have always been interested in aviation,especially the amphibious craft,such as the old P5M Marlin that was used for anything the Navy could think of putting it through.I also recall having TAD Subic Bay & standing a MID WATCH,guarding one of those monsters back in early 1957,before boarding my first tin can...also remember night flight-ops following behind our carriers,watching the older prop powered planes being catapulted & wondering if they actually had enough power to make it all the way up to Angels 20.
