    USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) conducts flight operations

    220717-N-WI365-1198 SOUTH CHINA SEA (July 17, 2022) Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 3rd Class David Wilson, left, from North Conway, New Hampshire, and Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) Airman Randy Sumpter, from Charleston, South Carolina, direct an F/A-18E Super Hornet attached to the Dambusters of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 195 lands on the flight deck of the 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.
