Final Hull Section of HMS Queen Elizabeth Arrives at Rosyth Dockyard (UK)

“LB04 is the largest section of HMS Queen Elizabeth, and the final part of the hull to make the journey.

“This marks a huge milestone for the programme to deliver the nation’s flagships.

“Now it is at Rosyth the hard work continues, as we begin the massive task of joining it to the sections of HMS Queen Elizabeth already in place,” reports the Scotsman.com citing programme director Ian Booth.

The Queen Elizabeth-class (formerly the CV Future or CVF project) is a class of two aircraft carriers being built for the Royal Navy. HMS Queen Elizabeth is expected to enter service in 2016 and HMS Prince of Wales in 2018.
