Outstanding!: USS Ford makes history: Launches, lands fighter jet with magnetic technology

I love this!  It so nice to see advances to our military.
Fox News reports the USS Gerald R. Ford, the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, successfully launched and landed an aircraft with advanced digital, magnetic technology, which replaces the older steam-driven catapult system.
The successful missions Friday came less than a week after President Trump commissioned the nearly $13 billion ship in Virginia.
