Megan's shot of the flight deck of the Melbourne (The "War Canoe") just shows what guts the Air Arm lads had to operate Skyhawks and Trackers off that piddly deck. A story goes that the RAN Skyhawks were invited to do some crashes and dashes on the deck of a US carrier - which the lads leapt at.

After the sortie, they invited the US Navy to come for some circuits on the Melbourne. The yanks joined the circuit, looked at the deck, and went home.

Here you go... airforce introducing a brand new system to combat ready within two years. And don’t tell that is because the F-35 is so much better cause it isn’t... It also has its problems but the airforce has found solutions how to “work with it”.
