Flight Deck and Island, HMCS Bonaventure
This photograph shows part of the Canadian aircraft carrier HMCS Bonaventure's flight deck, as well as its island (background).
Various parts of Bonaventure's flight deck were used for takeoffs, landings, and the storage of aircraft, which deck crews moved around as necessary. The engine nacelle and folded wing of a Grumman Tracker are visible at left. The carrier's island contained command and control facilities, as well as providing space for the ship's stack (centre right, with maple leaf) and supporting a variety of masts and antennas for electronic equipment including radio and radar.
