Maneuvering the aircraft carrier in port

BAE Systems, the main contractor of British aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, has just released a video of maneuvering an unfinished ship at a Scottish shipyard. Operating in such a small space with such a colossus is no small feat for seafarers taking part.

She was transported from the dock where she was born and was baptized (4th of July, a bottle of whiskey by the queen herself) to the place where further finishing works would be carried out.

To remind HMS Queen Elizabeth is the largest ship ever built and served in the Royal Navy, its displacement is 65,000 tons and a length of 280 meters. F-35 Lightning II multi-role fighters will be operated from its deck.
