A Portsmouth based sailor has become the first Briton to qualify as an aircraft director on a US carrier.
Chief Petty Officer Stacy Gager was put through an intense training programme on the USS Eisenhower so he could manage a continual stream of aircraft.
Stacy Gager said: "I am really pleased. I wanted to do this from the first time it was mentioned and the first to be out here learning these new skills and bringing them back to the Royal Navy."
Stacy is on board the USS Eisenhower with three other RN aircraft handlers as part of a new scheme between Britain and America called the Long Lead Specialist Skills Programme.
