Aircraft carrier hull moved out of Portsmouth plant
A 6,000-tonne section of hull from the new HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier has been moved out of a Portsmouth shipbuilding plant.
A team transferred Lower Block 02 across the BAE Systems shipbuild hall on to a sea-going barge using remote controlled transporters.
Next week it is due to travel 600 miles (960km) to Rosyth in Fife where the ship is being assembled in dry dock.
