At the very end of a cloudy day on board, the sun briefly broke through, bathing these six Tomcats of the Tophatters and Black Aces squadrons in golden light. To left and right are rows of F/A-18 Hornets. Midships, left, are SH-60F Seahawks. Far right is the tail of an S-3 Viking. There was a total of 35 aircraft on the flight deck. Seen from the ferry back to port.
