The trip included visits to the nuclear submarine base, the SEAL
training base, and the amphibious warfare base at San Diego (Coronado), CA.
The flight out
to the USS Carl Vinson was on a Navy C2A COD
aircraft which made an arrested
landing on the carrier. The Carl Vinson was on qualification exercises about
west of the Mexican coast, in preparation for a deployment to the
Arabian Gulf later in 1998.
The return flight on the same aircraft started
with a catapult take-off.
