Nuclear-Powered Aircraft Carrier Does High-speed Turns
This is what it looks like when a 100,000-tonne warship does high-speed turns.
The Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday (29 Oct) saw the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) conducting high speed turns during Sea Trials.
Aerial photography and heart-stopping video captured the scene as the $13B United States Navy aircraft carrier was put through its paces.
The 1,106 ft, nuclear-powered vessel was at sea from 25 Oct to 30 Oct before returning to Norfolk Naval Base in Virginia.
