Im assuming as its named Queen Elizabeth and not QE2 that its named for HM predecessor of similar namesake. Will be nice to have this and the PoW enter service, but its a shame they frittered around and between cost overruns and errors wernt able to put the steam catapults in. Carrier nuts will tell you that having to have the take off ramp is always kind of second class.

Put given the UK economy, having two new active carriers and taking on the F-35 will be a very large expenditure....on the upside, dont think Argentina will re-think the whole Falklands thing again with these new toys. :xmas4:

Perhaps they thought there might be confusion with the old passenger liner? Anyway, in this century, there is only one Queen Elizabeth. So glad she liked the cake!
