By modern standards, the USS Kitty Hawk was not a particularly large aircraft carrier – at 80k tons dripping wet and a little under 1100 feet, she suffered by comparison to the Nimitz class, which is only a trifle longer but 20k tons heavier.
The HMAS Melbourne was in another class entirely.
See if you can find her, ca. 1978.
Say what you will, those RAN pilots had marbles.
