O esquadrão ao qual o lutador foi designado não foi confirmado pela Marinha no momento desta publicação. De acordo com informações públicas da Marinha, o único esquadrão de transporte que voa com uma variável F de dois lugares é o "Black Knights" do Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 154 da Estação Aérea Naval de Lemoore, Califórnia.

Theodore Roosevelt returned to sea on June 4 after spending more than two months in Guam battling a COVID-19 outbreak that infected more than 1,200 crew members and resulted in one death. Carrier Air Wing 11 was re-certified to operate from Theodore Roosevelt before the deployment resumed.

The ship is back underway currently operating in the Philippine Sea, according to Navy officials.

The following is the complete June 18, 2020 statement from USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71).

PHILIPPINE SEA (June 18, 2020) – Two aviators safely ejected and were quickly recovered by a helicopter assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 8 aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) while conducting routine flight operations in the Philippine Sea.

The incident occurred as the F/A-18F Super Hornet assigned to Carrier Air Wing 11 was conducting routine pilot proficiency training. The incident is currently under investigation. Both aviators were assessed by the medical team on board Theodore Roosevelt and are in good condition.
