Carriers at War: EPISODE 2
Ready to Launch
For every F/A-18 leaving the air wing of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, there's a hardworking team onboard making the war machine run. Witness life aboard the USS George H.W. Bush and see what it takes to successfully operate a carrier. From the command master chief, who's equal parts guidance counselor and taskmaster to 4,500 sailors, to the air boss directing flight deck operations from the control tower, these are the men and women working around the clock to ready the supercarrier for war, whenever and wherever it's needed most.
