040601-N-6213R-021 Gulf of Alaska (Jun. 1, 2004) -Flight deck personnel cross their hands, giving the signal for "Foul Deck" to the shooter prior to the launch of an F/A-18C Hornet on the flight deck aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). With the loud noises from the aircraft on the flight deck, hand signals are essential to proper communications. Stennis and her embarked Carrier Air Wing Fourteen (CVW-14) are currently at sea conducting a scheduled deployment.  Photo by Mark J. Rebilas
