Good picture to highlight the fact that Ranger does not incorporate smoke stacks into her island superstructure as all our other carriers did except Langley. Ranger was the first purpose built aircraft carrier in the USN. There are 3 stacks along each side between the island and the stern. And they rotate.

Notice that Ranger doesn't incorporate smoke stacks into her island superstructure as all other US aircraft carriers did except the Langley, our first carrier. Ranger smoke stacks are located along each deck edge, 3 to a side, between the island and the stern. They can be rotated from the vertical to the horizontal for flight operations.
