Royal Navy’s 932-foot HMS Queen Elizabeth visits New York

By: The Associated Press   1 day ago

NEW YORK— The largest ship ever built for Great Britain’s Royal Navy is visiting New York for a week.

The aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth sailed into New York Harbor on Friday carrying about 1,500 sailors.

Commanding officer Capt. Jerry Kyd called the visit “very symbolic of the intimate relationship the Royal Navy has with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.”

The ship is anchored in view of the Statue of Liberty and can be seen by Staten Island Ferry commuters.

The 932-foot (284-meter) warship carries up to 60 aircraft.

British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson welcomed the Queen Elizabeth to New York. He called the ship “a symbol of our commitment to our #security and the security of our allies” on Twitter.



1,500 Brits on shore leave in New York City.....what could possibly go wrong? ;)


Welcome to NYC----spend your money!

Well, it's a giant floating ePenis that may well be a bit of a boondoggle, but even so...

... it is pretty cool. :lol:

I think Obi-Wan Kenobi would be proud to fly an F-35, and he didn't even "like" flying.
