"Aircraft Carrier 1922--Scheme 'B'" ... May 5, 1921 ... Additional Attached Notes


Paper note attached to Bureau of Construction and Repair Plan No.006217, Aircraft carrier 1922 Scheme "B" (see Photo # S-584-179). This pencil note was attached to the original drawing No.006217 and apparently represents instructions given to the draughtsman, Mr. Coolidge, in making changes to the plan following a meeting with Navy decision makers concerning this future aircraft carrier design. (The next version of this design is shown in Photo # S-584-180). This list of changes may duplicate those shown in Photo # S-584-179-A
Instructions include extending the arresting gear aft "so as to make total length 200 feet", omit catapult slot aft of forward elevator, put in three single 21-inch torpedo tubes on each side, make two specific changes to sloping protective deck thickness, make unspecified changes to the bow anchor and forefoot, plus other now illegible instructions.
Note: The original document was pencil on paper (black on white).

The original plan is in the 1911-1925 "Spring Styles Book".
