We won't diminish the fine reputation of the individual who sent us these photos, but that person doesn't work for Lockheed Martin in case you are wondering.
However, because these pictures have been made available by Lockheed Martin and Marinette Marine, we will give proper credit to Lockheed Martin and Marinette Marine for an excellent job with the PR here. I think I speak for everyone when I say it will be a good day when this ship finally gets to sea, and no we are not talking about the Great Lakes.

Click the images for a better view, most are larger than what you see here. There are a lot of things to like about this ship. For us, Freedom is to motherships what the Langley was to aircraft carriers, in other words not quite the right platform but one way to execute the right idea.
