HMS Queen Elizabeth?

Postby keithjs on Wed 23 May 2018, 9:45 am

I know this is an aviation forum but does anyone know when the carrier is due back into Portsmouth? (or even where it is at this moment)?
If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful. I've emailed the dockyard but no reply and I've tried shipfinder etc but no luck.Thanks in advance.

From a post on FC from an article dated 03May18

HMS Queen Elizabeth is now alongside in Portsmouth naval base on England’s south coast, covered in tents and scaffolding for a 13-week capability insertion period in preparation for an inaugural transatlantic voyage in September. The ship will then conduct a long-awaited first flight trials with F-35B aircraft and is also expected to visit New York City.

Thank you. Is it still covered in tents and scaffolding as the article says?

Saw it there yesterday. It still had a big white marquee on the flight deck.

Thank you. Where's the best place to get a boat trip around the harbour? Is Portsmaouth dockyard still the only option or do they go from the Gosport side too?

She put to sea this past weekend. Not sure if its for another shakedown before going to the U.S. or whether she's on her way now.

Ah, right, thanks for that. I'll have to go down when shes back in then...whenever that might be...?

Interestingly the RN Dockyard website says she's still alongside...so much for that....
