WW1 Carrier and aircraft

I'd like to see them make an aircraft carrier out of that battleship, then land SE5a planes on it, and take off again. Bonus points if the boat has multiple planes on it that get shuffled around by some sort of flight deck tug, built by the Drive On guys

I may be wrong but I don't think an SE5a ever landed on a carrier. In fact 'landing on' was rare as none of the the carriers, or aircraft, at that time had any facilities to achieve it.
WW1 carrier landings were very rare, only a few tries were made.
I picked the SE5a just because it was in the FT catalog, rather than picking the Sopwith Pup that had done it in practice or the Camels that had launched but not landed on one. I figure it was more of a fantasy challenge.
