[Brief] In May, the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) was redelivered to the fleet following the completion of her nuclear refueling and complex overhaul at Huntington Ingalls’ Newport News Shipyard. The ship marked her return to the fleet after four days of sea trials with high-speed maneuvers that tested her systems and crew; recently released video (above) shows her heeled over in sharp turns, the signature look of a nuclear supercarrier out on trials. Like other Nimitz-class carriers, Lincoln’s published top speed is over 30 knots, though her true maximum is likely higher.
