    Royal Marines from Lima Company, 42 Commando have been practicing their fast roping technique from an 845 Naval Air Squadron Merlin Mk4 helicopter onto the flight deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth. Lima Company is embarked on HMS Queen Elizabeth for the duration of the WESTLANT 19 deployment which will see them conducting maritime operations training and exercises in the United States.

    Who remember the mock up models that RN was testing on the land based facility with Tide class resupplying QE class?

    Investigation waves and air flow etc etc having said that check the wave hitting the tanker, probably caused by carrier

    Now it’s for real

    and from among of related articles I later saw, NavalToday has the most positive spin narrative:

    UK DEFENCE DIPLOMACY AT WORK - AN EVENING ABOARD HMS QE - 13 SEP 19

    Following her arrival at Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada, HMS QE hosted an evening event for Canadian VIPs and local signatories - held in the hangar of course and to the music of HM Central Band of the Royal Marines.
    The world’s newest aircraft carrier is an imposing facility for modern Defence Diplomacy!
    Some of the pics are of the hangar event and another from earlier in the evening showing the QE at anchor and finally others alongside at night - a really good one of the (aft) transom boarding platform (wodge) 70666783_10156352879841481_7450230256541106176_n.jpg 70314008_10156352879966481_7851362330628587520_n.jpg 71251976_10156352880056481_7525311494670516224_n.jpg 70707607_10156352879981481_1305760780578193408_n.jpg 70293981_10156352901761481_1935982488929173504_n.jpg
