    USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78)     

    French navy Rear Adm. Eric Malbrunot, middle right, deputy chief of naval operations for plans and programs, receives a brief from Lt. Christopher Jones, left, USS Gerald R. Ford’s (CVN 78) aircraft handling officer, on the ship’s flight deck design, in Ford’s flight deck control during a ship tour, April 23, 2021. French Armaments Procurements Agency (DGA) executive leadership visited Ford to view the electromagnetic aircraft launch system (EMALS) and advanced arresting gear (AAG) in operation, to enable France to refine the design of the Future French Carrier. Procurement of EMALS and AAG by France and the adoption of a Ford-class carrier flight deck operations model will ensure continued interoperability between both nations. Ford is underway in the Atlantic Ocean conducting its final independent steaming event of post-delivery test and trials. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Zack Guth)
