HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH BACK IN THE GAME!
11 years between these pictures; the RN has today again launched a jet from a carrier whilst replenishing at sea. This force-multiplier shows the Service's transformation in that time; Invincible to QE class, Wave to Tide class and Harrier to Lightning

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

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
