Aircraft Carrier Christening

Susan Ford Bales, daughter of former President Gerald R. Ford christens the Navy's newest nuclear powered aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford at Newport News Shipbuilding in Newport News, Va., Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013. The Ford class represents the first new aircraft carrier design in more than 40 years. Among other things, it will be able to launch jets faster than previous aircraft carriers and will require fewer crew members. Standing behind Bales is Commanding officer of the ship, John F. Meier, left, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., second from left, and president of Newport News Shipbuilding, Matt Mulherin. (AP Photo/Steve Helber)
