Trivia

Langley at first was the USN First Carrier but if saying a Carrier that was completely made as a Carrier in Design, this title would go to the Essex class. She, like in many regards saw many firsts in US Naval Aviation from the First US Plane Launch to Landing and was a further test bed for Future Naval Aviation Technological advancements. Her fate as a Carrier Change to the Lexington class Battlecruisers were instead converted to Carriers, and she was changed into a Sea Plane Tender changing her hull from a CV-1 to AV-3. It is funny to consider Langley carried Pigeons as a Message Courier but due to some Pigeons not being able to return back to Langley the Pigeon house was changes, instead, into a Officer Room but in the orignal design draft for the Lexington it included a Pigeon House which at that time the Naval Board already had changed the policy of the Pigeon Courier.
