    The QE offers an extremely broad beam compared to the Harrier generation, the F-35 Brave has an extremely luxurious existence, and a much more stable platform to depart or "come aboard"!

    What a shot

    I remember the land based mock up models showing the impact of waves and simulations between QE and Tide class

    HMS Prince of Wales is due in Portsmouth at Friday lunchtime, she's currently south of the Isle of Wight in the channel.

    She has recently met up with the USS Gridley and HNoMS Thor Heyerdahl. Quite an evocative picture.

    A PRINCE AWAITS FIRST ARRIVAL AT A NEW HOME! - 14 NOV 19

    R09 HMS Prince of Wales pictured recently at the end of her Builder's sea trials as she set sail south for her first Homeport entry - now scheduled at high tide (circa 1300) on Saturday 16 Nov 19. A flypast will help welcome R09 home for the first time!

    R09 still flies the Blue Ensign reflecting her civilian ownership until the Nation's 2nd QE class carrier is Accepted off contract and then commissioned into RN service. Commissioning Day is anticipated for 10 Dec 19 - a date very significant for an RN warship named Prince of Wales. 75625255_10156511645741481_2801508997113315328_n.jpg
    Meanwhile across the pond, here's an additional excellent pic collection taken from an 845NAS Merlin of A139 RFA Tideforce, R08 CV HMS Queen Elizabeth & T23 F238 HMS Northumberland undergoing a double RAS (Replenishment At Sea). In some an F35B can be seen hover landing concurrently.
    Superb skill, teamwork and professionalism proving what can be done to keep worldwide UK CEPP on tap 24/7 anywhere on the worlds oceans. 76762600_10156511683116481_524571354024902656_n.jpg 75474099_10156511638596481_1971890975324241920_o.jpg 74605581_10156511638321481_1789680715823054848_o.jpg 75084020_10156511637836481_8088155104701579264_o.jpg

    A couple more views of QE, we've all seen pictures of a Nimitz and Ford class making high speed turns, well here's proof we know where the handbrake is too! Also a view of the flight deck awash with Lightnings: 76232072_10156511540276481_7729500252876570624_o.jpg 74696660_10156511471246481_5589958596407328768_o.jpg
