U.S. Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic 2nd Class Antonio Archibeque of Las Cruces manually raises the canopy of an E/A-18G Growler in the hangar bay of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. Nimitz is in the U.S. 7th Fleet, conducting routine operations. The 7th Fleet is the U.S. Navy's largest forward-deployed numbered fleet and routinely interacts and operates with allies and partners in preserving a free and open Indo-Pacific region, the Navy said.
