Checkmate on Ready Five
It’s an early evening during the fall of 2010, aboard the USS Enterprise in the Persian Gulf. An F18 Super Hornet assigned to the renown Checkmate Squadron VFA 211, sits in Ready Five status, poised, fully armed and ready for immediate launch. Rolling clouds of catapult steam in the cooler evening air engulf the deck crew preparing the Hornet for launch.
The catapult officer and team have completed their launch check list while the ordinance officer has verified weapons check. Pilot and Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) awaits go signal.
