The U.S Navy and Marine Corps spend a lot of time on aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships respectively according to mission specifics.
The flight deck crew can keep a small number of fighter jets on the deck of these warships.

One of the earliest forms of this technology was found on the Lexington class aircraft carriers in 1927. Watch video below for more information:
