    Wish they'd gone into more detail about the Fleet Problems, which were only mentioned at the very end and almost in-passing, and how there were not only mock attacks on Pearl, but also a successful simulated strike on the Panama Canal. The results of the Fleet Problems caused the USN to begin shifting its doctrine to be more carrier-centric in the runup to WW2, and that's a big part of the reason the Essex class of fleet carriers were already beginning construction before the IJN attacked Pearl Harbor at the end of 1941. If the USN had waited until after Pearl to start laying down a new class of CV, it would have been quite a few more months before they started putting hulls to sea.

    5:35 - "The landing was the issue." Why, what's the problem with that landing? Seems pretty decent to me. :) Anyway, as usual, quality historical content. Kudos for including the very early steps, for some reason I love those frightening, fragile-looking pre-proto-barelyinvented contraptions.

      They are many problems with landing.The flight deck may be too short or the plane is too fast,so they can't catch the anchor rope in time and go overboard.

    The version of the F6c shown in the video does not have a P&W wasp as this was a radial engine. Only one prototype was made with the wasp afaik and it would look quite different

      I've been to the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola and yes the F6c does have the Pratt & Whitney wasp engine it just doesn't look like it because it was sitting at the bottom of the ocean for more than 40 years
