U.S. Navy C-2A Crew Conducted Qualification Flights with French Navy Aircraft Carrier

On January 6th, a US Navy C-2A Greyhound carrier on-board delivery (COD) aircraft from fleet logistic support squadron VRC-40 "Rawhides" performed some qualification flights with French Navy (Marine Nationale) aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. Nine traps (arrested landing) and a series of touch and go were performed by three US Navy pilots. The goal was to re-qualify them in operations aboard the French aircraft carrier.
