I assume their wings fold up?

Good question! Simple answer. "No"... Strangely one of the only carrier borne aircraft not to have folding wings. They fitted perfectly across the hangar and came up on the lift diagonally.
I'll sort some photo's later.

Fascinating, I wonder how many accident they had clipping the wings?
