Default AI aircraft will not unfold their wings when taking off from a carrier

It pretty much happens just like I said. Carrier aircraft will be lined up for takeoff at the start of the mission, but their wings are in the folded position like so:

Then they launch, but with their wings still folded, the pilot ejects and the plane crashes:

I will note that I am just starting to make missions in DCS: World but before I had a lot of experience making AI aircraft operate from carriers just fine in Flaming Cliffs 2. In the editor, everything is exactly the same. I tell the aircraft to "take off from ramp", they snap to the carrier, but for some reason they start with their wings folded and never unfold them. Can anyone help me out?

I get same problem on 1.2.7.23803.

Workaround is to set the aircraft to "Takeoff from parking" .

Hi dasmoo.
Bug reported, thanks.
Provisional solution as described by Rivvern (or take off from runway).
Cheers.
