American aircraft carrier "George HW Bush" launched after repair

American aircraft carrier "George W. Bush." (George HW Bush CVN-77) completed the next phase of the overhaul and after 18 months in dry dock was launched. This was reported by the press service of the US Navy.


An aircraft carrier that left the dry dock until it is returned to the American fleet, but will continue to repair. The ship is currently undergoing final checks, after which the crew will return to the aircraft carrier.

We are now focusing on the main readiness phase of the aircraft carrier before returning it to the fleet in a "like new" condition, ready for its vital mission.

- said the manager of the shipyard "Norfolk" Captain Kai Torkelson.

The aircraft carrier George HW Bush (CVN-77) arrived at the Norfolk Naval Dockyard early last year and was drydocked on February 22, 2019 for scheduled maintenance. As the naval command said then, the repair of the ship should take 28 months, i.e. almost 2,5 years.

The command of the US Navy does not disclose exactly what work was carried out on the aircraft carrier, but with a high probability it can be argued that the ship was converted to be based on board the fifth generation F-35 fighters. In addition, work was to be carried out on the ship to recharge the reactors. Another problem of the ship that had to be fixed during the repair is the latrine. For the first time, dry closets installed on an aircraft carrier constantly broke, it was reported that 423 toilets on the aircraft carrier simultaneously failed while patrolling the Persian Gulf. Most likely, this problem was solved during the repair.

"George W. Bush." (George HW Bush CVN-77) - the tenth and last in a series aircraft carrier of the Nimitz class. It was laid on 6 of September 2003 of the year, launched on 9 of October 2006 of the year, and the 10 of January 2009 of the year was included in the fleet. The ship has undergone a significant number of improvements compared to previous project aircraft carriers.

      It is not excluded. There were no fires during the repair. So the workers have found other ways to leave early, and perhaps at the expense of quality. If so, now the crew is waiting for an exciting mission to identify jambs smile

        Don't say gop. Smoke a couple of times and again for a thorough repair, or even for junk. fellow Our scouts have a rationalization proposal - to distribute Marlboro cigarettes and matches to all the sailors of this ship on a ball. fellow

        Yes, given the fact that the number of normal (white) workers is rapidly declining, the quality is deteriorating accordingly. Crews are starting to live more and more fun))))

    The ship is 11 years old, and it was already docked for 2,5 years. In fact, a capital. What was the designers' club-handedness corrected?

        These are all the fantasies of the author.
        The aircraft carrier has the following innovations:

        1 "Island": Reduced and upgraded with armored glass windows, new radars and communications installations.
        2 Deck: Updated gas bumpers.
        3 Aviation fuel storage and distribution system: Updated to the level of semi-automatic control of the refueling process.
        4 Toilet flushing system: Updated to vacuum system.
        5 Electronics and communication systems: Upgraded to increase automation and reduce maintenance costs.

        It turns out I'm right, the jambs were corrected

          Not only. The brief description of the tender for the planning of work on CVN-77 (Dry-docking Planned Incremental Availability - DPIA, duration - 28 months) indicates that the planned work should include work at the power plant, including repair work at reactors and in radiation hazardous areas.
          Total labor costs - 1,3 million man-days, of which 775 thousand - for the shipyard, the rest - subcontractors.

          And for "Bush" - this is the first dock entry since the launch in 2006.

                  For that, a special thanks to the person who planned the schedule for setting up AV for repair. For example, for the Atlantic, it did not take into account the capabilities of the Newport News Shipbuilding. As a result, the ship repairers had to patch up the Trishkin caftan, transferring materials from Washington, in order to deliver the Truman on time.

                  For 2019, the situation with Norfolk-based ABs was as follows:
                  USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) - training and delivery of tasks before deployment.
                  USS George Washington (CVN 73) - maintenance (RCOH - reactor refueling and overhaul).
                  USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) - combat-ready, planned for maintenance (RCOH).
                  USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) - under repair, all measures are being taken to complete the repair as soon as possible.
                  USS George HW Bush (CVN 77) - maintenance.
                  USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) - tests.

                  Believe it or not, this is exactly the normal cycle for AB. They generally spend up to a quarter of their service life in scheduled repairs - and that is why they serve for 40-50 years
                  By the way, our "Kiev" raised the flag in 1975 and already in 1982 got up for a two-year repair at the ChSZ.

        The Accounts Chamber conducted an audit of state property for 2017-19 and came to a stunning conclusion. Most of the state property is absent from the federal register, despite the fact that it is listed in the budget reporting. Thus, the Russian authorities "lost" objects of state property worth 90 billion dollars. You mean that something cut

          Well, stop talking nonsense. The Accounts Chamber, as always, likes to show off out of the blue. For some reason, this is a normal phenomenon for them. I translate into simpler language - the property is in place, it is registered in the accounting records, but there are no entries about this in the register. Therefore, how to write to the register you have to twist and torture yourself by providing the most idiotic information on several levels. This is by no means a loss

              Here's the point in explaining to you what is really behind these eternal numbers of SP reports, if you just do not listen to what they tell you? They made an idiotic conclusion in the matter in which you are not a specialist and rested on it. Well, this is stupid.
              And the fact that the Accounts Chamber likes to name numbers without explaining their meaning is even more evident from its 2018 report, for example. When they announced the identified violations in the amount of 462 billion, they will not write that most of them are violations at the planning stage, not spending. That is, conditionally, they brought them an estimate for the Crimean bridge in the amount of 100 billion, and they deleted 20 billion from it. And they write it down as a violation. Although not a ruble has not been spent correctly yet. Formally, they are not lying, but in fact they do not say that this is a violation not with real money, but with numbers on paper when planning. Why they behave this way is not clear to me. And exactly the same with these 90 billion - in fact, all this is available and in accounting, but the data was not submitted to the register - formally, this is a violation. But in essence - distortion of facts and lies. The reasons for the lies are not clear to me. They want to show themselves more beautifully - it's good if so. But somehow other reasons come to mind

            Why break through? Supersonic the same "Dagger", etc. will pierce this vessel through and through and do not have time to blink an eye .. Everyone is at a distance!

            Hmm ... I'm embarrassed to ask - have there already been successful tests of the "Dagger" against a sea moving target?

            And I hesitate to answer cough cough .. wink Want to check it out ? Match the red line .. hi

    What doesn't work doesn't break.
    Axiom.
    Apparently, there is also money for the arrangement,
    means - and plans for further use.

    A floating airfield is a grandiose thing.
    So I don't understand the bile of the "commentators".

    I think such a thing is a strong argument off any shore
    for the pliability of any country.

    Only two bombs were thrown to the Japanese how many years ago
    and they are still tame and bow shallowly into the ground.
    And at the same time those who were not thrown off. So, just in case.

    It's a shame the dry dock can't sink. Even mattresses.
    And the correct welder was not found :(

    Aircraft carriers are certainly good. But few people know that even a simple floating dock can sink submarines and ships. At the moment, a domestic floating dock is being tested - the killer of submarines and ships.
    Well, and a short video from the tests:
