Britain’s new aircraft carrier launches from Fife

HMS Queen Elizabeth launched today from Rosyth dockyard in Fife.

It is one of two new aircraft carriers and comes at a cost of around £3bn.

It is the largest warship ever built by the Royal Navy, its flight deck is the size of three football pitches and will be able to hold a crew of 1,000 and 40 aircraft including fighter jets.

The carriers launch for sea trials will mean it is the first time since 2010 that Britain has had an aircraft carrier after the previous Government scrapped it during spending cuts.
