Construction continues on the ship that will be the USS Gerald R. Ford, the Navy's newest Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. It's also called CVN 78.
Wednesday morning, the US Navy released this photo of the ship's progress. In this photo, CVN 78 is moved to Pier 3 at Newport News Shipbuilding.
Officials say the military vessel will undergo additional outfitting and testing for the next 28 months.
