Navy secretary says learning of Ford elevator delays from shipyard was a 'gut blow'

Recommended Posts

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (Tribune News Service) — Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said frustration regarding weapons elevators on the USS Gerald R. Ford stem from how senior leaders at Huntington Ingalls Industries communicated the problem, not the effort from employees.

Spencer spent part of Sunday at sea with the $13 billion aircraft carrier, which left HII’s Newport News shipyard Friday. The Ford is undergoing sea trials after spending 15 months at the yard for extended repairs and upgrades. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/navy-secretary-says-learning-of-ford-elevator-delays-from-shipyard-was-a-gut-blow-1.605002
