The Royal Navy’s massive 70,600 tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth is floated out of dock for the first time in Rosyth, this happened in 2014 and work has progressed rapidly.

A question I always wanted to ask is, whilst floating the QE out of the building dock how did they get a tug fast on the bow ? There does not seem to be enough room down the sides. I hope someone can help me solve my puzzle.

Looking forward to seeing this arrive at Pompey. Looking at recent pictures the other day, looks like she’ll need another paint job first!!

Do we have enough sailors to crew it? ?

Yes. It’s high level of automation means crew is about the same as Invincible class…

Harry Robinson Top criticisms from apparent Facebook Military “experts” are that the carriers aren’t nuclear powered and that a Sea Typhoon would be far less costly and infinitely superior….which it wouldn’t…..ever

Pity about the limitations of the “Jump Jet” configuration – it could have been so much more versatile,
