Aboard USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) Nov. 21, 2003 -- The new E-2C Hawkeye is coming in for it's first trap ever on an aircraft carrier aboard USS John F.

Kennedy is conducting flight certifications in the Cherry Point Operating Area.  U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 3rd Class Christian Weibull.  (RELEASED)
