HMS Queen Elizabeth returns to Portsmouth

Britain’s newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, returned to the UK on Wednesday having spent three months in the USA conducting air trials with F-35 stealth fighter jets. 

For the first time the Royal Navy’s two giant aircraft carriers have docked together, stern to bow, at their home base of Portsmouth.

The 65,000-tonne warship manoeuvred into place alongside her sister ship, HMS Prince of Wales, which arrived for the first time at Portsmouth last month and will shortly be commissioned by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
