Description

After several days of preparations, the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy’s 932-metric ton lower stern lift took about an hour to complete, thanks to a team of about 25 Newport News shipbuilders—from riggers and the crane operator to shipwrights and ship fitters. Photo by Matt Hildreth/HII
