    Background: In the Fifth of Forth today, it was a special occasion for the aircraft carrier ARK ROYAL. Her whole air group -- nearly forty planes -- was launched in under twenty minutes.

    The Navy's largest carrier was moored to a buoy as the planes were launched by the new steam catapult. A helicopter stood by in case of accidents.

    When they were all in the air, we asked their Commander if this exercise was something new.
