Cross Deck Helicopter Ops – Malabar 2020

November 3, 2020 – Rotary-wing aircraft land and take off on the flight deck aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) during cross deck flight operations during Malabar 2020.

Participating aircraft included a Sea King 42C helicopter from the Indian Navy Shivalik-class stealth multi-role frigate INS Shivalik (F 47); an MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopter from the Royal Australian Navy Anzac-class frigate HMAS Ballarat (FFH 155); and an SH-60 Super Auk from Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) JS Ōnami (DD 111).

Malabar is an India-led multinational exercise designed to enhance cooperation between Indian Navy (IN), Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) and U.S. maritime forces. Australian, Indian, Japanese and American maritime forces routinely operate together in the Indo-Pacific, fostering a cooperative approach toward regional security and stability.
