    When every 40 seconds an aircraft hits the deck, there is no time to connect it with a towing tractor and push it backwards. You have to split the incomming aircraft one forward one to the aft to get the landing strip immediately clear. The aircraft will taxi on their own power to reach their parking position in the shortest time possible. After all aircraft are recovered, you respott the deck, rearm and refuel them, and than can bring them into the air again.

    This is the scene after all aircraft are recovered and pushed from the foredeck to the stern for refueling, rearming, and a new departure:

    Aircraft #120 is one, that seems to be recovered from the recent mission. Number #118 and #111 may be aircraft that remained on deck while the other aircraft performed the mission.

    This is a showpiece for a beautiful photo. The guard helicopter is still on deck, the next departure phase has not yet begun - if it was planned at all.

    Explanation of separation for landing (this example on a land base, but the principle is the same):



    Four aircraft coming in on the upwind leg (in landing direction overhead the field), than split off every 10 seconds, turning to the downwind leg and separate for an other 10 seconds = touch down will be every 20 seconds, that is normal for a land base. On an aircraft carrier, where the aircraft comes to a full stop and the arresting wire has to unconnect and rolled up, 40 seconds is standard.

    Example of a carrier traffic pattern:

    This is with 10 to 15 seconds splitt, that means 20 to 30 seconds apart on final. As far as I know that is very taff and not normal.
