S-3B Viking

An S-3B Viking, assigned to the "Scouts" of Sea Control Squadron Two Four (VS-24), prepares to launch from the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). This is VS-24’s last deployment due to the squadron being decommissioned in 2007 with the retirement of the S-3B Viking aircraft. Roosevelt and embarked Carrier Air Wing Eight (CVW-8) are currently underway on a regularly scheduled deployment conducting maritime security operations.
