Night Flight Ops Aboard the Aircraft Carrier USS Carl Vinson In The Bay Of Bengal

As a former sailor who served aboard an aircraft carrier during the Vietnam War, I was interested in the above photo of night flight operations aboard the aircraft carrier the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70).

The photo depicts an aircraft director signaling as aviation ordnancemen unload ordnance from an F/A-18E Super Hornet aircraft aboard the Carl Vinson while under way in the Bay of Bengal on Jan. 28, 2011.

The USS Carl Vinson and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17 are on a routine deployment to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility.
