    The U.S. Navy has started a series of tests on its newest and most advanced aircraft carrier by detonating powerful explosions to determine whether the ship is ready for war. The first of the tests, which are known as Full Ship Shock Trials, occurred Friday when the Navy set off a giant explosive event near the USS Gerald R. Ford, according to a statement. Images and video footage showed an enormous burst of water shoot from the ocean as a result of what carrier officials called a 40,000-pound explosive. Video of what the explosion looked like from the carrier's bridge wing was posted to Twitter. Ever wonder what a 40,000 pound explosive looks like from the bridge wing of a @USNavy aircraft carrier?

    The Navy has fired thousands of pounds of explosives at one of its aircraft carriers, creating a blast equivalent to a 3.9 magnitude earthquake, to test its wartime abilities. USS Gerald R. Ford, the first of a new class of carrier, was struck by the blast about 100 miles off the coast of Florida around 4pm Friday. The explosive event was the first in a series of full-ship shock trials to prove whether the carrier can take a hit during battle at sea and marked the first shock trial in more than three decades on a Navy carrier.  The Navy celebrated the success of the trial Saturday, tweeting that 'the leadership and crew demonstrated #NavyReadiness fighting through the shock, proving our warship can 'take a hit' and continue our mission on the cutting edge of #NavalAviation!'  The Navy has fired thousands of pounds of explosives at one of its aircraft carriers, creating a blast equivalent to a 3.9 magnitude earthquake, to test its wartime abilities USS Gerald R.

    After one sailor tested positive for the coronavirus, about 100 members of a fighter squadron aboard the USS Gerald Ford were taken off the ship as a “precautionary measure,” US Navy officials said Friday. The unidentified sailor is a member of the Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 213, which flies F/A-18F Super Hornet aircrafts and is based out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia, Stars and Stripes reported. He was never aboard the Ford but he did have contact with other squadron members who had been on the ship Tuesday. Most of the sailors will be able to return to work Saturday, but those who had been in close contact with the sailor will be quarantining for 14 days. “At this time, the risk to other USS Gerald R. Ford sailors and embarked personnel is believed to be very low,” Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg, a spokeswoman with Naval Air Force Atlantic, said. “All sailors who may have come into contact with the [coronavirus] positive sailor were removed from the ship, placed in a precautionary quarantine, and will be tested for [the coronavirus]...
