Watch an exclusive, behind the scenes journey of the development and testing of EMALS, the electro magnetic aircraft launch system that will be state of the art on the US Navy's new class of Aircraft Carriers.

If I were 18 again that is where I would be working on a deck of a super carrier, mastering the landing strip and thereafter moving on into pilot school. Antonio, the 18 wheeler

Disheartening to see women on Navy ships & submarines. They ruin the armed forces. I spent 5 years of my life flying in a Navy P-3C Orion antisubmarine warfare aircraft so I know first hand. When I wasn't flying, I had to work side by side with the females. Every sentence that comes out of their mouth starts with "I cant" - as in I cant reach the bomb rack, I cant lift this sonobuoy, I can't hoist this bomb, I can't push this bomb cart, I can't torque this bolt, I can't untorque this bolt, etc. etc. One time right before a mission, I was standing next to one of my pilots at the front of the plane (outside the plane). We were prepping a plane for Harpoon missiles. The females received the task to prep the plane which involves installing Harpoon umbilical cables on the bomb racks among other things. It was like watching a 3 ring circus & the keystone cops at the same time. I'll never forget; my pilot leans over to me and says, and I quote "This is when I wish I had my video camera. So I could film this debacle and send it to our congressman." I know they are shit, the pilots & other officers know they are shit - but yet if you squawk about it - you're a racist, woman hating man. So everyone lies on performance evaluations and says "Petty Officer Smith is an outstanding asset to work center 230. Without her expertise blah blah blah....." It's all bullshit. At least when I was in they didn't allow woman on ships, submarines or aircrew. Just as I was getting out in 1995 - we got the first female aircrewman. What a joke that was. Now they have polluted the submarines as well as the ships. God help us all if we really ever have to go to war.

America is emotionally stuck in the golden age of carrier force, a time in which the carrier begun it's supreme reign. The future is going to be sub and satellite launched warhead packed pilotless drones.

lmao - an aircraft carrier (50+ fighter jets) that also travels with multiple other ships can't defend itself from an attack. You didn't give that much thought did you. Stop stressing you will give yourself a heart attack.

Nope, nope, and nope. These aviation assholes that watch videos like this and masturbate to completion don't understand the primary mission of the Navy. The first and foremost mission of the Navy is strategic deterrence. That is conducted by Ohio class submarines with nuclear missiles. Also, the first strike capability of the US is conducted by submarines that carry cruise missiles, not the outdated manned aircraft of an aircraft carrier. Aviators need to acknowledge that they are a dying breed that can be replaced by drones.

With Chinese and Russian hypersonic cruise missiles, aircraft carriers are obsolete jobs programs that will never be risked in a forward position. It just makes MIC billions of profit but has no benefit. What do you call a $6billion dollar carrier? Target.

Darn...30 years of designing databases and when he said that using nuts and bolts was impossible to replace...I sat back for a moment and imagined first a 3D holographic like you see on TV sci-fi and can be expanded or shrunk like your photos. Every ship plane located in space for 300 miles and in zoom every plane on the carrier and its location. Color coded with text descriptions., Etc. Willing to work as an advisor with any company with the ability to do the design....

China and Russia do not have the capability to take on the entire world.... sure they will inflict massive damage, but in turn, other countries will demolish China and Russia simultaneously, besides this is just mass fear mongering at its best, do you really think these greedy self-appointed demigod politicians want to live in fancy bomb shelters while the nuclear fallout exists , like forever... doubtful..(please pass the top roman MrXi Jingping)... these programs are painful to watch...
