Anyone know how carrier takeoff's will be organised.
During WW2 the leader would take off, climb to a certain altitude and orbit the carrier. Subsequent aircraft would take off and join the formation. Once all the aircraft are in position the formation departs to target.

A similar, but more open formation would be applied for landing.

I just think it would be good to watch you AI mates forming up.
