Image of the Day: Flight Deck Sprinklers On!

Taking an unusual shower aboard an aircraft carrier sometimes seems to be just a part of the job in the US Navy.

This is exactly what happened when Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 3rd Class Travis Beach, from Redway, Calif., and Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 3rd Class Anthony Jones, from Oakland, Calif., unclogged flight deck sprinklers during an aqueous film forming foam test aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74).

John C. Stennis is completing a docking planned incremental availability maintenance period at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.
