On August 9, Newport News Shipbuilding will be conducting air traffic control testing on the Gerald Ford. During testing, jets will fly within 500 feet of the carrier to test the dual band radar with may result in noise for nearby residents. The Ford is docked at the south end of the yard which will hopefully minimize effects in the North End – Huntington Heights neighborhood. Time and duration of testing not yet set. Back up date will be August 11 if the 9th gets scratched.
