Day 081/19. Almost ready to go.
A harbour tour today around Portsmouth.
HMS Queen Elizabeth, the first of two new aircraft carriers for the British Royal Navy.
HMS Queen Elizabeth is the largest and most powerful vessel ever constructed for the Royal Navy. Designed to carry 40 F-35 aircraft (but if needed can accomodate 62), this awe-inspiring warship will enter the naval service in 2020.
In April she will leave her home base of Portsmouth to head back to Scotland where she was built for some final modifications.
I have taken a similar shot last year, but today the Spinnaker Tower was not obscured by scaffolding and cranes.
