We’ve been following (sort of) the construction of the UK’s largest ship – the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. It is being assembled in Rosyth, but parts of the vessel are being constructed all over the UK. One of the latest assemblies is the bridge structure, which has just left BAE Systems in Portsmouth. This weights 680 tonnes and has its final paint colours applied, windows fitted and consoles installed, along with 43km of cables and 3,101 pipes.
If you want to see more about this major project, there are now more than 10 video clips in YouTube showing how different parts of the ship have been made and/or transported to Rosyth.
