HMS Ocean - Full Flight Deck

Sorry Peter, can't answer that one, however, Wikipedia shows Ocean as 630 feet in length.

There is still a Sea Fury in service in the historic flight at Heron (Yeovilton).

I know people from Heron use this site so hopefully someone may be able to answer the take off roll for you.

I remember when I was in Gibralter in '53. The Theseus or the Ocean came on her way home from Korea, and instead of using tugs to turn the ship around, she had aircraft ranged on the flight deck, for'd of the island faced to starb'd, aft faced to port. They then just revved the aircraft engines up and the ship turned around on the proverbial sixpence. the tugs then just nudged her in alongside.
 
The Aircraft are being launched by catapult. The free takeoff would be from approx, the fourth aircraft down.

Junglydaz bear in mind that the wings fold.
