"tested ashore at Lakehurst, N.J." Well if something was going to go wrong with the catapult, that's definitely the place for it to happen i guess.

The one I am most interested in them building is CVN-80 (Enterprise). Of all the ships in Navy history, I'm sure that name has the longest and most distinguished history. Used on sailing Ships as far back as the war of 1812 to one of the 1st Aircraft Carriers in WWII (CV-6), all the way to the 1st Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carrier (CVN-65), even Goodyear Tires made a "Blimp" for the US Navy to use to guard the West Coast during WWII. In total, I believe the US Navy has had 6 vessels with that name at 1 point or another.

I'll not get into the many uses in Star Trek

She's still not ready yet

The Navy's New $13 Billion Aircraft Carrier Has Some Serious Problems

http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the...-serious-24520

Quote:
The DoD’s intensive assessment of the Ford, conducted by the Office of the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation and published last month, along with its other 2017 technical analyses, reveals “poor or unknown reliability” among many of the Ford’s essential systems, including newly designed catapults, arresting gear, weapons elevators, and radar.”

These systems aren’t just high-profile (see: that steamless catapult) but critical for the vessel’s roles in counterterrorism and great-power deterrence. “[The limitations] could affect the ability of CVN 78 to generate sorties, make the ship more vulnerable to attack, or create limitations during routine operations,” the report states. “The poor or unknown reliability of these critical subsystems is the most significant risk to CVN 78.”

I just hope they solve all the problems by the time they get CVN-80 (Enterprise) ready and I'll be happy.

They sure do have a lot of people walking around on the fight deck of the USS Ford (CVN 78) including girls:

Hmm, where are all the F-35s in that video? Even with all the Ford's hiccups it might be ready before it's F-35s are.
