You see, they use the iceberg as an extended ramp, helping the planes reach their altitude by going straight up a (roughly, can go up or down in some parts) 90 degree slope! And the ice being thrown at their face is to help wake them up if they missed their coffee.

The target is a little larger than two meters wide, though. ;)

You didn't know about the top secret hover project for planes with propellers?

Well the Germans and the US did create some helicopters during WWII. The US even used them at one point.

Oh.. No wait! I know! All the planes go off the rear of the ship.

 

Look carefully, you actually can see the planes taking off the front.

I wonder how the aircrews feel when they are taking off...

*heavy breathing as they take off*

I bet they're feeling just fantastic! nothing says "have fun!" better than a face full of arctic iceburg.

 

I feels as if they knew they had to be super cautious and sneak away! we can all be a little sneaky

It's cold, and since cold air sinks, the air is very dense it'll generate more lift for the plane to lift off. The afterburners will create hot air therein creating a tornado that propels the jet further into the air. Jetnado.

Well ya never know... They could be reversed polarity aircraft that take off backwards.

That's not an iceberg it's an optical illusion.

Here's another theory: They've replaced their radial pumps with spinach cans...

IRL, carriers in the age of propeller powered aircraft required wind flowing over their decks in order for launch operations to occur. I wouldn't mind seeing a similar mechanic added here. The "park and play" design of current carriers is infuriating, particularly when it's some idiot on your own team who decides to simply camp out right in his starting spot (how many times a week do I have to see someone doing this?).

As a CV captain, this makes it easy for me to take out the enemy CV if they do this strategy :P.
