    Sorry if there was a specific section for Naval Aviation that I missed, but I really need an answer to this.

    In this diagram, on wikipedia:
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipe..._class_battleships_inboard_profile_EN.svg.png
    There is an "aircraft hangar" area near the rear, but on all other photographs and diagrams I can find that area is shaped differently (about half as tall) with not enough room to put a flying boat inside there. Does the ship have a hangar or not?


    Edit: Oh wow I'm an idiot, please move along nothing to see here. Turns out she did, but after a 1943 refit the hangar was removed...
