USS Gerald R. Ford Ship Sponsor Susan Ford Bales continued her personal involvement with the completion of CVN 78 by participating in the EMALS testing which successfully launched sleds from the ship. Huntington Ingalls Industries captured numerous images throughout the day and created a photo album detailing the preparation and successful EMALS testing.

Following the demonstration of the system,  Susan issued the command signals for the launch and thanked personnel from the U.S. Navy and Newport News Shipbuilding for their continued commitment and hard work.
