I figure there's a few folks that visit this forum that would have some appreciation for this event. Almost 107 years to the day after the Wright Borthers first took flight the US Navy successfully test the first new launch system (designated for use on the CVN 78 carrier) in NJ. The link below is a video of the first launch for the EMALS program.
I've never had the honor to serve but have spent my entire career since getting an engineering internship in college on this project. It has been a long time coming and I am extremely proud to know that I played a part in making it happen.
Enjoy, and thank you to those that have served or are serving. Merry Christmas!
