there are only 2 occasions on WARTIME OPERATIONS where land a/c took off AND landed, the Hurricanes on HMS GLORIOUS Norway , and a single Spitfire that had fuel flow problems on a Malta delivery that landed back got it fixed and departed.
all the rest were either delivery trips with the a/c flown off , the Doolittle raid , and trials . did the U2s over do an "operational flight from the carriers, or just the trials??
Which CVs can you name that operated (not ferried) land-based aircraft (took off or landed or both)?
