In the next breath we are told that after these planes get up into the air and fly around they must have a place to land or they will drop helplessly into the :sea.. In we must have "landing fields" at sea. otherwise our air force is (useless after a few hours. And this statement is used by conservative naval officers and "experts" as an I argument for more battleships .and pcruisers. The airplane carrier is a seago- ing landing field. Lacking carriers, we lack naval landing fields. And lacking these, the planes that we stow on our battleships and cruis- ers are of use only for a few min- utes. Our air force, so-culled, evaporates. Two battle cruisers are now being converted into carriers. But we are informed these ships will not be finished until the autumn of 3026. At Mercy of British Fleet.
