  • On board a US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf

The ability to launch both transport planes and fighter jets from such a small landing deck is one of the most impressive features of aircraft carriers, and the USS Carl Vinson has been working around the clock since it arrived in the Gulf in October last year. Pilots from here have flown more than 2,000 missions, more than a third of all the raids carried out by the US and its allies on Islamic State, under the watch of the ship's captain, Karl Thomas.
