    Carriers on the Great Lakes: The U.S. Navy acquired two large paddlewheel excursion steamers and converted them to the training aircraft carriers USS Wolverine and Sable in WW2. Largely unheard of outside of naval aviation, these two ships performed yeoman's service by training the hundreds of new pilots in the most critical task of their job; landing on an actual flight deck while a ship is underway, in all kinds of weather. Sable & Wolverine trained 17,820 pilots in 116,000 carrier landings.
