HMS Queen Elizabeth

An 11,000 ton section of the aircraft carrier manufactured in Glasgow has been loaded on to a barge for transportation to Rosyth where the ship is being assembled. It's questionable whether Britain needs or can afford two 65,000t aircraft carriers (the biggest in the world outside the US Navy) but at least it brings employment to the city.

  1. I like the way it is labelled "aircraft carrier" just in case you wondered what it was.
