Suggested correction: An aircraft carrier is only a 1000 ft long and the F14 launches off them.half a mile would be about 2,500 ft.

This correction is nonsense and shows no understanding how aircraft carriers work. First, the runway on an aircraft carrier is typically around 300 feet. Second, they use a catapult system to launch planes so the planes can get up to the proper speed in time. Without a catapult, the F14 needs 2,500 feet.
