I remember many times doing refuel at see with carriers, and while us real sailors were getting tossed around on our destroyer, those airdales were up on the flight deck with a cup of coffee laughing their heads off at us, not spilling a drop.

Pppppppt!



All nuclear powered now. Probably only get refueld once in their entire life

The carrier does, but they have to refuel to add jet fuel and weapons as they run low.

They're in the process of correcting any issues found during the builders trials, and then they head to sea again for acceptance trials. After acceptance trials, they will correct any problems and take delivery of the ship.


“Delivery, pending the results of acceptance trials, we expect to turn delivery around quickly after that,” Stackley said.

“The crew is already onboard, operating and running the systems; she’s at the naval station; she’s loaded out; so the steps to go from acceptance trials to delivery, it’s going to be contingent on, what are the critical starred card type of deficiencies – if any – that are identified during acceptance trials,” he said, referring to the Navy test community’s way of denoting the most serious issues they find during sea trials.

“We came out of builders trials strong, we’re correcting those deficiencies” now before the ship heads back out to sea, Stackley continued. “I’m pretty confident right now in a good [acceptance trials] and a quick turn around to deliver the ship.”
