B-Roll: USS Abraham Lincoln Embarks for Sea Trials

May 12, 2017



The USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) embarked on sea trials on Tuesday, May 9 as Newport News Shipbuilding wraps up the ship’s refueling and complex overhaul. Sea trials put the aircraft carrier through a series of tests designed to prove system performance and demonstrate all the carrier’s capabilities at sea. The RCOH process is performed only once during the ship’s 50-year lifetime and involves upgrades to nearly every space and system on the ship.
