The cockpit of a Harrier jet, and we mean just the cockpit, has been spotted on the deck of aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales.
The vessel isn’t going to start operating Harriers, get that out of your head right now.
Amy Savage, a renowned naval photographer in the Portsmouth area, captured the following image.
I really recommend following Amy on Twitter as she frequently posts great snaps of the ships coming and going from Portsmouth. You can find Amy on Twitter by clicking here or going to her profile at @AmzJS13.

Why is it there?
What is HMS Prince of Wales doing?
The vessel is preparing for the next carrier qualification trial that’s coming up later this year. For this deployment, Lightning Team UK will need to ready six F-35s for another at-sea deployment. The first F-35 landed on HMS Prince of Wales earlier this year.
