Bravo Zulu Pat!

The newest aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush is another step closer to certification after Lt. Pat McKenna made the first arrested landing .

USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) made history May 19 after safely landing the first fixed-wing aircraft, an F/A-18F Super Hornet. Lt. Patrick McKenna and Cmdr. Beau Duarte, from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md., piloted the Hornet.

President Bush offered this congratulatory handshake shortly thereafter. It’s  an honor  and his Dad, Mike, is rightfully proud. We continue to enjoy following Pat’s career.  BZ and keep up the good work!
