USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) Photo Gallery

The photos below were taken by me and show USS GERALD R. FORD anchored in the Solent off Portsmouth, UK, on November 16, 2022. The carrier left its homeport of Norfolk, Va., on October 4 for what the Navy calls a "service-retained" deployment meaning that the FORD will stay under the operational control of the US 2nd Fleet and will not be assigned to a regional commander. It's USS GERALD R. FORD's maiden cruise and Portsmouth is her first-ever overseas port of call. This deployment serves as a test of the carrier's advanced technologies prior to its first Global Force Management deployment in 2023.
