A-4 Skyhawk

An A-4 Skyhawk embarked on the Brazilian aircraft carrier BNS Sao Paulo (A12) performs a touch and go landing aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76). The U.S. Navy's newest Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and its crew are underway circumnavigating South America as they make their way to their new homeport San Diego, Calif., while participating in exercises supporting Summer Pulse 2004. Summer Pulse 2004 is the simultaneous deployment of seven aircraft carrier strike groups (CSGs), demonstrating the ability of the Navy to provide credible combat power across the globe, in five theaters with other U.S., allied, and coalition military forces. Summer Pulse is the Navy first deployment under its new Fleet Response Plan (FRP). (Photo: U.S. Navy/Photographer's Mate 1st Class John S. Lill)
