C-2A Greyhound

A Sailor gives hand signals to the pilot of a C-2A Greyhound from the Providers of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VRC) 30, Detachment 5, aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). George Washington is participating in Annual Exercise (ANNUALEX ) 2011, a bilateral field-training exercise sponsored by the Japan Self-Defense Force. ANNUALEX allows the U.S. and Japan to practice and evaluate the coordination procedures and interoperability elements required to effectively and mutually respond to the defense of Japan, a regional crisis, or a contingency situation in the Asia-Pacific region.
