English: The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Tarawa (CVA-40) underway on 18 December 1952.

Note: the official description reads "... underway, probably in the Mediterranea Sea on 18 December 1952." However, this cannot be correct as Tarawa returned from the Mediterranean Sea to the U.S. on 11 June 1952 and left again on 7 January 1953. On neither deployment she carried F2H-2 Banshee fighters. Fighter Squadron 62 (VF-62) flew F2H-2 with the tail code "F" (as shown here). This was the tail code of Carrier Air Group 4 which was deployed to the Mediterranean Sea aboard USS Coral Sea (CVB-43), 19 April to 12 October 1952, and USS Lake Champlain (CVA-39), 26 April to 4 December 1953.

Assuming that the date is correct, the carrier was working up for her coming deployment off the U.S. East Coast.
