CORONADO, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2012) Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Equipment) 3rd Class Johnathan Smereka, assigned to the air department aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), cranks a winch lowering a power cylinder into the trough of catapult four on the flight deck. Carl Vinson is pierside at Naval Air Station North Island for a planned incremental availability. The U.S. Navy is reliable, flexible, and ready to respond worldwide on, above, and below the sea.
