Amazing to see this. These two paddlers were used to train not just the pilots, but also the deck crews in flight operations.
Thank you for posting it here.

Very interesting ships! Quite chic interior as civilian steamers in the 1920! The paddles were not so conspicuous, as in XIX Century side paddlers. The wake is rather odd due the paddles, but I think that it was a Smart choice for a pair of hull that were without Actual use, with a los rate of casulties and accidents, and an incredibe high output of trained. Thanks for the link! Cheers.

As a by - product of landing accidents, there are some USN WWII
aircraft at the bottom of Lake Michigan, not far from Chicago.
Also, since this is a fresh water lake, the aircraft are well
preserved, with less corrosion and virtually no marine plant
or animal growth on the wrecks. And, unlike ocean training,
these aircraft lie in shallow water and can be easily viewed
by divers.

I believe "Corp" drew an AU version of Wolverine for the Carrier Challenge.
