Aircraft carrier hull time-lapse video


How do you move a 13,000 tonne aircraft carrier hull into position?

The time-lapse video captures the building of the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth at Rosyth shipyard.

A 13,000 tonnes section of the carrier was moved more than 90 metres along the bottom of the dry dock to be joined with the rest of the front end of the ship.

The HMS Queen Elizabeth is the first of two new aircraft carriers being constructed for the Royal Navy.
