The USS Gerald R. Ford is a first-in-class aircraft carrier that has had its fair share of growing pains. Still, its commanding officer says that there's nothing he misses about the Nimitz-class carriers and that he wouldn't want to go back.

The Ford is behind schedule, over budget, and still sorting out certain developmental challenges. The $13 billion aircraft carrier has at times been a point of tension between lawmakers, Navy leaders, and the primary shipbuilder. But the Ford CO told Insider the carrier is getting back on track. https://www.businessinsider.com/ford-captain-says-he-does-not-miss-older-aircraft-carriers-2020-4
