Foreign Object Damage Search Personnel teams on board the USS Kitty Hawk walk the flight deck 2-3 times

per day in search of foreign object damage, or FOD. They look for small

objects that have broken off of equipment and also for liquid foreign

objects. The purpose of the search is to find and remove these from the

flight deck so as not to damage and potentially down any of the fighter jets

and other aircraft on board. Small foreign objects can get into the engines

of aircraft and potentially bring them down. close
