Sea Hawk lands on Nimitz

PACIFIC OCEAN (Dec. 3, 2016) An MH-60S Sea Hawk helicopter, from Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 8, prepares to land on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68). Nimitz is currently underway conducting Tailored Ship's Training Availability and Final Evaluation Problem (TSTA/FEP), which evaluates the crew on their performance during training drills and real-world scenarios. Once Nimitz completes TSTA/FEP they will begin Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) and Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) in preparation for an upcoming 2017 deployment.
