US Navy Warplanes and USAF Strategic Bomber Attack Iranian Military Target

Following a bombing raid by a US Air Force B1-B strategic bomber to seal a railroad tunnel in a mountainous region in Iran, US Navy F/A-18C Hornet all-weather fighter/attack aircraft of the VFA-41 "Black Aces" squadron were sortied to destroy railroad bridges to effectively trap a train suspected of carrying military armament.  The Hornets encountered moderate resistance from Iranian fighter aircraft and ground forces, but were able to inflict substantial damage to the bridges.  Mission details may be viewed HERE.
