Ike gets back to work


The carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower is back in business. After a nine-month availability, the second-oldest Nimitz-class carrier is conducting flight ops and taking on fuel; now there are pictures to prove it.

The ship, underway in the Atlantic, is completing carrier qualifications and flight deck certifications in preparation for its next deployment. Ike completed sea trials June 15, completing almost 300 INSURV tasks along the way.

Here are a few pictures from this week’s activities as the carrier works toward its next deployment.
