The USS Hornet leaving San Francisco in 1942 with Jimmy Doolittle's B-25's on board. The first strike against Japans mainland. Awesome pic.

Dumb question. How did they make space for the 1st ones to take off??
The newer carriers I've been on had elevators to move planes to lower level when others are landing or taking off. Assuming this one has elevators also.
