    April 9, 2014, north of the Arabian Sea, the anti-aircraft frigate Jean Bart escort the U.S. aircraft carrier USS Bush. Integrated into American carrier battle group Carrier Strike Group 2 (CSG 2) from 8 April, the frigate provides a protective bubble around the U.S. aircraft carrier. Within the CSG2, he assumed the Air Defense Commander (Air Defense Command) function. Familiar with the procedures and methods of U.S. equities, the Jean Bart was also given the function of Fleet Air Defense Identification Zone (FADIZ) Coordinator. Better known as the "Red Crown", to check the conformity of the identity of the various aircraft entering or leaving the area around the air carriers that function aims. This mission demonstrates the confidence of our ally in our material and human air defense capabilities and interoperability of our forces.

    U.S. Navy North American A3J-1 Vigilante nuclear bombers from heavy attack squadron seven VAH-7 Peacemakers of the Fleet on flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVAN-65). VAH-7 was assigned to Carrier Air Group Six (CVG-6) aboard the Enterprise in 1962 for a deployment to the Mediterranean Sea and during the Cuban Missile Crisis. In the foreground is the tail of a McDonnell F4H-1 Phantom II of fighter squadron VF-102 Diamondbacks.

    A U.S. Navy North American A-5A Vigilante bomber (BuNo 149285) from heavy attack squadron VAH-7 Peacemakers of the Fleet landing on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVAN-65) in 1963. VAH-7 was assigned to Carrier Air Group 6 (CVG-6) aboard the Big E for a deployment to the Mediterranean Sea from 6 February to 4 September 1963. The aircraft was later converted to an RA-5C reconnaissance plane and crashed on 21 May 1966 while in service with heavy reconnaissance squadron RVAH-5 Savage Sons aboard the USS America (CVA-66). The crew ejected safely.

Also visible are two McDonnell F-4J-35-MC Phantom II fighters each from Fighter Squadron VF-92 Silver Kings (BuNo 155794, 155804), and VF-96 Fighting Falcons. The Big E and assigned Attack Carrier Air Wing 9 (CVW-9) were working up for a planned deployment to Vietnam from 6 January to 2 July 1969. However, the carrier had to enter a shipyard until March 1969 after a devastating fire off Hawaii on 14 January 1969. Losses totalled 28 dead, 343 wounded, and 15 aircraft destroyed.

The nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser USS Bainbridge (DLGN-25) is visible in the background.
