U.S. Navy Employees of Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard install new propellers on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS CARL VINSON (CVN 70) in dry dock in Newport News, Va., on Jan. 5, 2007.  The shaft and propeller project is a major milestone in the aircraft carrier's refueling complex overhaul, and is one of the final major components of outside-the-hull work.

Aircraft carriers are warships that act as airbases for carrier-based aircraft. In the United States Navy, these consist of ships commissioned with hull classification symbols CV (aircraft carrier), CVA (attack aircraft carrier), CVB (large aircraft carrier), CVL (light aircraft carrier), CVN (aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion) and CVAN (attack aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion). The first aircraft carrier commissioned into the United States Navy was USS Langley (CV-1) on 20 March 1922.
