USS Bush launches Super Hornets to pound Islamic State

Supersonic F/A-18 Super Hornets soar off the USS George H.W. Bush to bomb Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria at all hours of the day and night.
Their pilots speak almost affectionately when describing the Super Hornet’s speed, maneuverability and destructive power.
This is the second time the Bush has been deployed to battle ISIS. The first time was in 2014.
The Bush launched airstrikes against ISIS in February while in the Mediterranean, then traveled to the Persian Gulf to continue the assault with the Super Hornets.
