The U.S. in Guyana embassy release noted:
“Today, with collaboration and approval from the Government of Guyana, two U.S. Navy aircraft, F/A-18F Super Hornets, embarked on USS George Washington, took part in a friendly flyover exercise with the Guyana Defence Force. The exercise builds upon our routine security cooperation and expanding bilateral defense partnership with Guyana.
The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS George Washington and Carrier Strike Group Ten are in the region as part of a two-month transit to the Pacific. During its transit, USS George Washington will conduct exercises and exchanges with longstanding defense partners to increase interoperability, build capacity, and support hemispheric security and stability. These engagements reflect what General Laura Richardson has described as “Team USA’s unwavering commitment to partner with like-minded nations who represent Team Democracy.”
As part of its worldwide defense mission, U.S. Navy vessels routinely transit international waters around the world, conducting similar exercises and exchanges with partners and allies.”
