06 Jun 17. US Navy’s Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier to conduct carrier qualifications. The US Navy’s USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Nimitz-class aircraft carrier has departed Naval Station Norfolk to conduct carrier qualifications (CQ) and flight deck certification (FDC) tests.
USS Abraham Lincoln has recently completed a four-year mid-life refuelling and complex overhaul service at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding site.
