Carrier Air Wing 3 ends mission


HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) – Carrier Air Wing 3 has ended its mission for Operation Enduring Freedom.

Since August, pilots spend more than 16,000 hours in the air flying more than 2,900 sortie training missions. The Air Wing embarked on the Norfolk-based USS Harry S. Truman and has been in the Gulf of Oman.

USS George H. W. Bush and Carrier Air Wing 8 are set to relieve the Truman and Air Wing 3 later this month.
