I am one of 5 Air Intercept Controller Supervisors in our Carrier Strike Group. The Sups and the AIC (the other controllers) from the Aircraft Carrier and the ships that our in our Strike Group come out here with the Air Wings that we will deploy with. Our mission is to attend the fighter briefs for missions and then control the fighter missions and get great training and control time! It is awesome fun!
Ahh... What a beautiful shot I captured below! A line of F-18 Hornets with the snow capped mountains in the background.
