Aircraft Carrier Operations – USS Dwight D Eisenhower

Deployed in support of Operation INHERENT RESOLVE since June 2016, the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D Eisenhower, or “The Mighty Ike”, has been conducting daily strike missions against so-called “Islamic State” in both Syria and Iraq, from both the Arabian Gulf with US Navy 5th Fleet and more recently from the Mediterranean Sea with US Navy 6th Fleet.

To achieve the end goal of projecting US Naval power anywhere on the globe, the USS Eisenhower relies on the teamwork, professionalism and commitment of over 5,000 sailors. Flying from NSA Souda Bay in Crete to join the ‘Ike’ shortly after the ship entered the Mediterranean, AeroResource present this second report on US Carrier Air Power. Details of the Eisenhower’s involvement with Operation INHERENT RESOLVE can be found in our first article.
