Looking back.

The Naval Aviation News Year in Review article is published annually to document key events from the previous calendar year. This issue's chronology includes an unprecedented event that affected the entire nation: the 11 September terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Naval Aviation's response to the attacks was immediate and unwavering.

These pages highlight images from on board some of the aircraft carriers that stood at the ready to respond to the terrorist threat in the month after the attacks. Clockwise from top: a chief aviation warfare systems operator scans the horizon above Carl Vinson (CVN 70) from an SH-60H Seahawk on 24 September. A Sailor stands watch on Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) on 13 October as Vella Gulf (CG 72) steams in the background. Less than a week following the attacks, a VAQ-141 EA-6B Prowler is spotted on the catapult before launch from Enterprise (CVN 65) on 17 September.
