This was the first carrier specifically designed to operate the new generation of jet aircraft, and built from the outset with an angled flight deck and modern landing-signal aids. The earlier carriers, such as the USS Midway, were modified straight-deck carriers originally built during WW-II.

Would have loved to have watched A-3s trap aboard, I just missed 'em by the time I got in! What a beast. Thanks for the photo.
