This is a U.S. Navy photo found on Wiki Commons and properly attributed to PH3 Mac M. Thurston, USN.

This excerpt from the text associated with that U.S. Navy photo should answer your questions:

"A U.S. Navy Douglas EA-3B Skywarrior from electronic reconnaissance squadron VQ-2 Batmen taking off after having just misses (sic) the wires aboard the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga (CV-60) on 22 March 1986."
