John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) Lower Bow Lift

Sep 28, 2018



Shipbuilders lowered the final piece of the ship’s underwater hull into place on Friday, Sept. 28 at Newport News Shipbuilding. The joining of the 726-ton lower bow, which includes the distinctive bulbous feature, completes the section of the ship below the waterline and extends the nuclear-powered warship an additional 122 feet.
