Meet the Navy pilot who’s landed on six classes of US aircraft carriers
Geoff Ziezulewicz
 
Just another day in the office for Capt. Cassidy "Dudley" Norman. (Navy)

Roughly 25 years ago, Capt. Cassidy “Dudley” Norman landed his jet aboard the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy, an old workhorse of a flattop that was commissioned in 1968 and was one of the last non-nuclear carriers in the Navy’s fleet before it was decommissioned in 2007.

Last month, Norman completed carrier qualifications aboard the nation’s newest carrier, the Gerald R. Ford, ahead assuming command of the carrier John C. Stennis next month.

That arrested landing provided Norman with some distinctive bragging rights: he has now landed aboard six different classes of U.S. aircraft carriers in his career.
