Vert Rep!

Service to the fleet!




080301-N-9639L-209 PERSIAN GULF (March 1, 2008) An SH-60 Seahawk, assigned to the "Sea Knights" of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 22, transfers cargo from the Military Sealift Command fast combat support ship USNS Arctic (T-AOE 8) to the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) during a vertical replenishment. Truman and embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3 are deployed supporting Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and maritime security operations.

UPDATE: As noted in the comments, the aircraft is a MH-60S Knighthawk and not an SH-60 (and yes, I know they are still called "Seahawks" officially).
