The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) makes high-speed turns in the Atlantic Ocean. After successfully completing a midlife refueling and complex overhaul, Abraham Lincoln will spend several days on the road and conducting sea trials. Its dry weight is 93,000 tons. And will act when necessary. And back in the ’80s beno station in Beirut and many other places. It was a tough turn and you felt almost the entire 1100 ft. You’d be surprised how fast a ship this size can go!!!
These maneuvers are a test to make sure the ship is up to the required standard. Large ships like this are not normally used like race cars. Wow, what a sight even though it’s clear that the aircraft carrier is a beast and the Navy has shown it to the world. After watching how incredibly maneuverable an aircraft carrier is, it kinda makes one wonder how something smaller and even more maneuverable like a Burk class destroyer, was unable to maneuver out of the way of a tanker ship.
