Like my Dad always used to say, "There's nothing more useless than the sky above you and the tanker deck behind you."

Reminds me of a story a work friend of mind told me several years ago. He was serving in the Navy on an aircraft carrier (Cannot remember which one) in the English Channel when three Belgian Stampe aircraft (similar to a Tiger Moth) visited the ship. The carrier was heading into a head wind with the ship's speed over 30 knots which combined was in excess of the stalling speed of the Stampes, they had to slow the ship down so they could land. I forgot to ask him what they did for take off.
