The Super Cobra was just one of an entire arsenal of aircraft landed in preparation for the ship's spring patrol. Others included AV-8B Harrier jet aircraft, as well as CH-53E Sea Stallion, CH-46E Sea Knight and UH-1N Huey helicopters. Essex is the lead ship of the only forward-deployed U.S. Expeditionary Strike Group and serves as the flagship for CTF 76.
