VFA-41 performed an area familiarization flight after arriving in the Gulf of Oman.

VFA-41 performed the flight as two flights, Dealer 1 and Dealer 2. Both flights departed CVN-72 and formed up at WP1. All flights then proceeded along the assigned waypoints while receiving information about the local area from Lemur 601 an E-2 Hawkeye.

As part of the mission both flights performed CCIP bombing practice as well as strafing practice at UAE's bombing range.

After finishing up at the range both flights were to refuel from two separate tankers. Dealer 2 was able to refuel from Texaco. Shell experienced a communications failure resulting in Dealer 1 diverting to Aldhafra to get fuel. While departing Aldhafra one of Dealer 1's aircraft experienced an incident that required an emergency land back at Aldhafra.
