Who knew a 100,000-ton aircraft carrier could drift!
With a top speed of about 35mph you would think maneuvers like this would be impossible especially when the ship is over a thousand feet long. Well, it’s not impossible for this ship the U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier can turn on a dime. That’s part of the reason why it costs $4.5 billion! These ships need to go through rigorous testing and the crew needs to know what to do in these situations.
