The U.S. Navy’s Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) was redelivered to the fleet May 12, marking the completion of her refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) carried out at Newport News Shipyard.

The aircraft carrier rejoined the fleet after four days of sea trials with high-speed maneuvers, that tested the ship’s systems and crew.

At sea for the first time since March 2014, the crew conducted rigorous tests of engineering components, the modernized combat systems suite and flight deck equipment that supports Lincoln’s mission at sea. Damage control capabilities and basic deck seamanship were also checked to ensure both the ship and the crew’s operational readiness.
