Watch in awe as this giant aircraft carrier performs a series of high speed maneuvers during recent sea trials.
“The sea trials period we completed today went exceptionally well,” said Capt. Ronald Ravelo, Lincoln’s commanding officer. “Of course there was some discovery, the ship hasn’t been underway for over four years, but everything went for the most part on schedule.”
“During the buildup to our high-speed runs we had to do some cleaning of our lube oil coolers, things like that,” said Ravelo. “It wasn’t like anything broke, per se, the lube oil coolers rely on sea water and they needed to be cleaned out as we went into our high-speed runs.” – Navy Times
