    Lots of excited photographers around Gibraltar this morning!

    It isn't as big as the biggest American carriers but the brand spanking new HMS Queen Elizabeth is the biggest vessel in Royal Navy history and on its first voyage it's now coming to pick up supplies and give some shore leave to the sailors here at Gibraltar after launching in December.

    "The Royal Navy's largest-ever warship is taking another step towards deploying on operations, and is training at sea with military aircraft for the first time.

    HMS Queen Elizabeth, the first in a new class of British military vessels, sailed out of Portsmouth Naval Base on Friday to learn how to work with helicopters on the open waters.

    The huge ship, which weighs 65,000 tonnes, is undergoing tests and training in pursuit of its ultimate aim of launching F35-B Lightning jets from its 280-metre flight deck." (LINK)
