Hanger Deck Cat Launch

Another view of the hanger deck level catapult, taken 25 February 1944. HORNET was the only carrier to keep its hanger deck catapult until the end of the war. Since the aircraft could not benifit from the ship steaming into the wind, these catapults were deemed unpractical, and replaced with a second flight deck catapult.
