PHILIPPINE SEA (June 10, 2015) Members of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 5 fast-rope from an MH-60S Sea Hawk helicopter
Members of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 5 fast-rope from an MH-60S Sea Hawk helicopter from the Golden Falcons of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 12 onto the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) during a helicopter rope suspension technique exercise. George Washington and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, are on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. George Washington will conduct a hull-swap with the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) later this year after serving seven years as the U.S. Navy's only forward-deployed aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan.
