    USS Ford Sea Trial Video

    I just found this cool.

    I got to be on the Eisenhower when it did some turns like like, in a workup after refitting. Kinda neat seeing it from the outside.

    Try eating on the mess decks when the ship is rolling. My second cruise we went from the gulf, to a NATO exercise of the coast of Norway, and went through real bad weather getting there(when waves are breaking over the bow of a carrier, it is really bad weather). Walking through the mess decks, you had to dodge the tables that where sliding from one side of the deck, over to the other, then back again.

    The only ship close to that size I have been on is the Missouri and it wasn't going anywhere but I seem to recall the tables being fixed to the floor.

    I did notice that they had all the Chief's coffee mugs locked down tight, however.
