At sea aboard USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Jan. 3, 2003 -- After a successful barricade drill, the barricade is carefully lowered as supervisors watch attentively.  Barricades are used as a last resort for emergency recoveries of aircraft aboard the ship.  Lincoln and her embarked Carrier Air Wing Fourteen (CVW-14) are conducting missions in the Western Pacific.  The Lincoln Battle Group, due to return home in late January, was notified the deployment has been extended.  U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 3rd Class Jennifer Nichols.  (RELEASED)
