THE Spanish frigate Mendez Nuñez recently visited Mallorca after joining the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group earlier this month.
The Lincoln is the first US aircraft carrier to enter European waters since the Harry S Truman carried out a double deployment last year in the US Navy’s recently-revived concept of operating in an unpredictable pattern.
“Our mission is to provide the Lincoln with defence capacity, carry out different maritime security assignments and guarantee the freedom of shipping and commerce,” said the Mendez Nuñez’s captain Antonio Gonzalez del Tanago.
