A nice image of the French aircraft carrier Béarn at anchor.

Béarn was originally to have been the fifth and final member of the Normandie class superdreadnoughts. Powerful ships armed with twelve 13.4" guns, the Normandie class were laid down in 1913/1914. Unfortunately, the start of World War I led to the suspension of work as the workers were mobilized for war and the construction materials were diverted to the Army.

The hulls sat idle in various stages of construction until after the war. Though the thought was given to completing them, they were ultimately canceled in 1922. Béarn by virtue of being behind her sisters in construction, was chosen to be converted into an aircraft carrier as she would require the least amount of modification.

Much of the material from the first four sisters was used to hasten the reconstruction of Béarn. When completed in 1927, she was the first aircraft carrier to be built by France. It was intended that Béarn be a starting point for future designs, helping France learn the intricacies of carrier development and operations.

In this regard, she was successful though her capabilities as a fleet carrier were minimal compared to her contemporaries. Still, she ended up being the only French carrier to be built until after World War II.
 
¡ADIOS DÉDALO!

Spain's first aircraft carrier Dédalo, the ex-USS Cabot (CVL-28) hands over the naval aviation torch to Principe de Asturias. AV-8 Matadors (Harriers) are on the decks of both carriers, circa 1988. Dédalo was decommissioned in August 1989 and sent back to the US where she was scrapped despite efforts to save her as a museum.

The aircraft carrier "Cabot" after remaining in the US Navy Reserve Fleet since 1955, was transferred and assigned to the AE in 1967, receiving the name "Daedalus". In its first years it acted as a helicopter carrier, until Starting in 1976, it began to board vertical takeoff aircraft "Harrier" called in Spain "Matador". Starting in 1975 and with the decommissioning of the cruiser "Canarias" it became the flagship of the Fleet. It had its Base in Rota. It had 26 40 mm Bofors A/A cannons, arranged in double mounts. It displaced 16,185 APC tons, 190 MTS in length. Spain acquired it in 1973. Its take-off runway was 168 meters long by 32 meters wide. It carried a combination of airplanes and helicopters, but it already showed some instability, as it was getting old. The propulsion plant broke down from time to time. taking into account that it was delivered in 1943, in the middle of SGM.Y, in 1989, already tested with a guarantee, the R-11 "Prince of Asturias" took over. Our "Daedalus" was decommissioned to become a museum ship in the US, but in the end it ended up being scrapped in 2002.
