Taking off in a loaded bomber off an aircraft carrier deck was an amazing feat. Those guys are the real heroes.

You get the ship going 30+ knots and add in a 30+ knot head wind and you have 60 knots air speed before the plane ever moves 1 inch. Most of the planes made it off way before the end of the deck. One pilot forgot to lower his flaps and had a longer run and a bit of a dip.

The forgotten part of this tale is the 10's of thousands of Chinese that were executed by the Japanese in the area where they flyers made their escape.
