A US aircraft carrier is in the frigid waters north of the Arctic Circle for the first time since the Soviet Union collapsed


Recommended Posts

In September 1991, three months before the Soviet Union dissolved, the US Navy aircraft carrier USS America sailed into the Arctic Circle for NATO exercise North Star.

The America was the last US aircraft carrier to operate above the Arctic Circle until Friday, when the USS Harry S. Truman and ships from its strike group sailed into the Arctic Circle for operations ahead of Trident Juncture, which will be NATO's largest military exercise in nearly 20 years. https://www.thisisinsider.com/trident-juncture-navy-aircraft-carrier-in-arctic-first-since-cold-war-2018-10
