Response to one flight deck modification IS clear



Before anyone needs to ask, yes of course, the linear measurements were made along the port side of the flight deck: as the image appears on my computer screen, 35 mm for the total length of the 439-foot flight deck, and 6.3 mm for the distance between the forward portside corner of the flight deck and the point where the catapult track intersects the port side of the deck, equivalent to 79 feet by such a rough estimate. Thus whatever might have done with the catapult mechanism itself when the forward flight deck was lengthened 77 feet, its location vis-a-vis that in the original 362-foot flight deck did not change. Hope all is now clear.
