Three aircraft carriers, belonging to three different navies, work together

Even if this naval formation was only arranged for photographic purposes (as three such warships would be much more effective if operating at significant distance each other), the sight of three aircraft carriers belonging to three different navies, sailing close each other is at least unusual.

The Italian Navy aircraft carrier Cavour, front, the American flattop USS Harry S. Truman and the French navy aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, are conducting maritime security operations in the Gulf Oman.

USS Truman Carrier Strike Group is currently operating with the Task Force 473 “to enhance levels of cooperation and interoperability, enhance mutual maritime capabilities and promote long-term regional stability” within the 5th Fleet AOR (Area Of Responsibility).
