Queen Elizabeth Sets Sail

Our new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth sets sail today for the US where fighter jets will land on it for the first time.

 

Queen Elizabeth

 

I wonder if @shutter will be there to see it.

No,..... been there.... done that ! ! ... but will try and make the effort if she comes home with the decks full of aircraft.... but that is unlikely, as they usually "fly off" before entering Portsmouth, to their base for any servicing/maint issues to be sorted, while the ship is alongside.

Imagine the disappointment when the people of Maryland flock to see Queen Elizabeth only to find that it's a ship, not the actual queen!

Imagine the peoples' disappointment when they go to see an aircraft carrier. 

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
