Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... (eventually ... see the video clip ;) ... its the RAF that flies off the decks of RN carriers, right? So that might have been part of getting the RAF on board for the ships. Even the larger jump jet complement that can be put aboard the Príncipe de Asturias is not great for getting the RAF onside, if the precedent is that the yanks would still only want them to be used as "mere helicopter carriers".

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
