    USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) conducts flight operations

    220718-N-DW158-1109 SOUTH CHINA SEA (July 18, 2022) Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) Airman Randy Sumpter, left, from Charleston, South Carolina, and Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) Airman Julian Bibb, from Detroit, watch an F/A-18E Super Hornet attached to the Dambusters of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 195 land on the flight deck of the U.S. Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76). The Dambusters earned their nickname on May 1, 1951 when the squadron's Skyraiders destroyed the heavily defended and strategically positioned Hwacheon Dam in North Korea with aerial torpedoes by making precise low level runs. Ronald Reagan, the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 5, provides a combat-ready force that protects and defends the United States, and supports alliances, partnerships and collective maritime interests in the Indo-Pacific region.
