USN Douglas EA-1F Skyraider of electronic warfare squadron VAW-13 Zappers making a touch-and-go landing on the British aircraft carrier HMS Victorious (R38) off Cubi Point, Philippines, late 1963
Grumman F9F-2 Panther fighters of fighter squadron VF-51 "Screaming Eagles" launching from the aircraft carrier USS Essex (CV-9) in 1951.
All 3 Invincible class carriers together at sea. Possibly the only time this has happened. I think this is 1989 just after Invincibles's refit. HMS Invincible (R05) is closest, then HMS Illustrious (R06) and then HMS Ark Royal (R07). Generally, two were active while one was in maintenance.
USS Leyte (CV-32) in Korean waters, 1950–1951. Left to right AD-3N Skyraider, 2 F9F-2 Panthers and a F4U-4 Corsair.

Not a real aircraft-carrier, but a very nice model. I really like the air group of Q-5 & JJ-6.
