I'm doing a historical comic book on Pearl Harbor at the moment. Here are the few pages so far. This is the heart of the Japanese strike force that launched the attack on the US fleet Dec 7.

Guys, I know, it's sounds like I'm total idiot... But could anyone please tell me, how does airplanes take off, if there's another ship in front of the carrier? And how do they're langing? Or is it all about distance between the ships? Or do ships have different formation dufing take-offs and landings?

I hate to necro this, but I must put my two cents in. Although the attack was aimed at crippling the US Pacific Fleet while at anchor, the Japanese were prepared for the possibility that the US caught on to them, and dispatched the fleet to meet them in open water. Throughout the rest of the war, the US would have similar formations centered around a powerful carrier force. The fact that the IJN still had devastating Battleships despite the loss of (most of) their carriers still made it apparent that if just one got through, the carriers would be finished. If my history is correct, the Yamato alone took over 200 planes aprx. 90min to finally sink.
