Carry On Crew: World Of Warplanes

Aircraft carriers, majestic caravans of the sea, are apparently home to all sorts of winged wonders. A combination of being disturbed by having no land in sight and a terrible fear of being shot at means I'm unlikely to pilot any carrier-based aircraft in real life, so perhaps the addition of nine such warriors into World of Warplanes provides my best chance to take them for a spin. They're all from the US Navy and include the "Grumman F2F and Brewster F2A Buffalo, the first biplane fighters with retractable undercarriage, as well as the boldly designed Chance Vought F5U and Vought F7U Cutlass fighters, both of which pioneered the use of turbojet power." This isn't Flare Path and none of that means much to me, I just used a picture of the funniest looking one. The rest are idling in the trailer below.

Closed beta signups are open, if such a thing is possible. Anyone tried this yet? Any aces among you?
