F/A-18C of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 136 Knighthawks behind the massive Jet Blast Deflector of the USS Enterprise (CVN-65). The Hornet is armed with air-to-air sidewinders as well as a series of bombs underneath the wings. The aircraft was assigned to a Counter Insurgency mission near Baghdad (Iraq) with some twenty other aircraft from Carrier Air Wing ONE. The Enterprise was floating in the Arabian Sea at that time.

A F/A-18F Super Hornet seconds away from its controlled crash on board the USS Enterprise (CVN-65). The carrier was set in the Arabian Sea for several months during Operation Iraqi Freedom. All aircraft flew with live weapons, and when not used in the combat theater, many aircraft were able to take the weapons back to the carrier. Jet fighters of an earlier age than the Super Hornet were often forced to throw their weapons into the sea before landing at a carrier, as they were too heavy for a safe landing.
