Wow, she's back already! That was a pretty fast sea trial. Is that normal for new ships?
Four, five days seems alright for a first trial. There's bound to be more.
CARRIER HAS ARRIVED! ^^

I think not possible.
Next step after dry dock will be adding arresting hook and prepare for real air operation landing and take off trial.
I am using this CG in my overview page and want to give credit..ala:

Great stuff going on.
My guess is that they will identify the things needing fixing, get them fixed, go back out and test those to make sure, and move on to the next tests.
It may be several iterations before they get to the air ops at all...but we shall see. We'll kinow when the arresting cables are laid out...that doesn;t mean the next trip they will test them, it just means they could.
