Of course not! Early STOVL! ;D

Personally, I wouldn't be letting the carrier get that far ahead of me ... Could take half your fuel load just to catch up! :o

From wikipedia and I would assume describing the box art above:

Quote
Royal Navy Tiger Moths used as target tugs and "air experience" machines became the last military examples when that service purchased a batch of refurbished ex-civilian examples in 1956. One became the last biplane to land on an aircraft carrier (HMS Eagle) in the English Channel during the summer of 1967. On takeoff, the wind over the deck allowed the aircraft to fly, but it was slower than the carrier, which turned hard to starboard to avoid a possible collision. These planes remained in service until the early 1970s.
