Four ships from three nations sail together during the NATO exercise Display Determination '91. The ships are, from front to back: the Spanish aircraft carrier Principe-de-Asturias (R-11), the American amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD-1), the American aircraft carrier USS Forrestal (CV-59), and the British aircraft carrier HMS Invincible (R-05).

Artist's concept of CVN-78, a new class of aircraft carriers. A new nuclear propulsion plant will power the next class of aircraft carriers. The new plant will require fewer operators thereby lowering life-cycle costs, and will provide increased electrical power that will be available for the demands of developing technology. Smart sensors will assist in further reducing Navy watch standing requirements and in automating damage control functions such as detecting fire and flooding situations. Flight deck redesign and a transition to an advanced aircraft recovery system (AARS) will reduce crew workload, enhance safety and reduce the costs of operating and maintaining a carrier throughout its planned 50-year life cycle. On 29 May 2011, the Department of Defense announced that CVN-79 would be named for John F. Kennedy.
