    Looks to be a COB - Carrier On Board - the equivalent of UPS, delivering supplies (and people).

    That sounds like a C-2, which is prop driven. The audio in the video indicates it's a jet, which, given that you have side by side pilot/co-pilot, is most likely an S-3 Viking. The only other jet that I know of that has side by side occupants is the ea-6b, but there's no re-fueling probe to the left of the pilot in the video (which is where it would be on the ea-6b).

    The S-3 is an anti-submarine aircraft, and is the same kind of jet that President Bush flew onto the USS Lincoln several years ago.

    That makes sense, although I was under the impression that the Navy used jets for COB these days.
