I should think the Yanks discovered that adrenaline was brown when they found out how small a space they had to land on the Ark !

In fact there is very little difference in the size of the actual landing strip down the deck. Its all the other parkland that makes it seem so much bigger on US carriers. Somewhere in the gallery is a photo of Ark moored beside a US nuke and its surprising when you compare the landing area, how little difference there is.
