Unfortunately it will be a few years yet before that hangar is full of F35s

QE2 will be commissioning QE2 in Portsmouth on Thursday 7 December.

Not exactly the most auspicious day for naval ceremonies.

This photo is too good not to share.

HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH passing Gibraltar. There's no doubt about it, she's a very impressive ship.

There will be some great photos coming shortly when she arrives in New York. She is doing FOCFT (First of Class Flight Trials) with the F-35Bs off the coast of USA. She has already visited Mayport in Florida and she will go to Norfolk, VA and a PR visit to the Big Apple. That will be a sight, seeing her passing the Statue of Liberty.

Two very different technologies. HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH transits with the future USS MICHAEL MONSOOR DDG-1001. MONSSOR is heading to the West Coast of the US for her commissioning. QE is finalising her flight trials with the F-35Bs.

Now that is one of those photos that makes you stop and think.
Think of the 80's, back then that photo would have been HMS Hermes and a Charles F Adams DDG, things certainly have changed.
