The "Angle" of the Angled deck on U.S. carriers

Recommended Posts

Just a question regarding angled flight decks...


Can someone confirm for me what the exact angles are for each class of carrier.


In particular I wanted to get the USS Midway's angle clarified as I read in a blog somewhere that it was 13 degrees after it's major rebuild of the 1966-70 time period. Before that it was stated as being 10 degrees.


I've looked at wikipedia and it says a figure of 9 degrees in one of those flashy looking gif images for the Nimitz Class carriers. Nothing about the Ronnie having a different angle though.
