Region: US deploys aircraft carrier to the Gulf
The United States Navy aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis arrived in the Gulf region towards the end of 2018, after an eight-month period in which there was no US aircraft carrier in the area – the longest period for 20 years that there has been no US carrier presence. Residents of coastal areas of Muscat, Oman witnessed some very low-level, tea-spilling visits over the New Year period by the carrier’s complement of F18 fighter attack aircraft.
