U.S. Navy Air-Traffic Controller 2nd Class Gregory Clemmons (left) stands the departure position watch as Air-Traffic Controller 3rd Class Marcus Tucker sets up on-screen maps in the air traffic control center aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77).  The Bush — the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier — was in the Atlantic Ocean last month conducting carrier qualifications for new pilots (see video here).

The nuclear-powered George H. W. Bush is the last of the Nimitz class super carriers. The ship was named the top aircraft carrier in the Atlantic Fleet in the 2011 Commander Naval Air Force Aircraft Carrier Battle Efficiency and Departmental Awards program, Feb. 10.

The Battle Efficiency Award, or Battle “E”, recognizes superior operational performance, assessing the command’s accomplishments during training exercises and various command inspections. The crew of George H.W. Bush won the honors on the heels of the ship’s first combat deployment.
