USS Eisenhower Patrols Arabian Gulf

From the deck of one the largest, most powerful warships in the world, the attack jets of the most powerful country in the world take to the skies above the Arabian Gulf. The missions from the USS Dwight D Eisenhower, a Nimitz class carrier, are an almost bone-shudderingly loud constant. The jets, 44 in total, scream into the skies across the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan day and night. But we are just 80 miles south of Iran, and Carrier Strike Group 8 knows its next biggest task could involve Iran, shipping lanes and keeping the world's oil supplies moving.
