Newport News shipbuilders added a 965-ton structure comprising two pump rooms to the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) earlier this month. This is the 21st superlift that has been placed in the dry dock since the ship’s keel was laid in August 2015. Photo by John Whalen/HII.
