THE huge section of the navy’s new aircraft carrier will start its 600-mile journey around the north coast of Scotland tomorrow.
The 11,300 tonne aft section of hull – known as Lower Block 04 – was last week moved out of BAE Systems’ shipbuilding hall at Govan and loaded onto a huge sea going barge in preparation for the journey to Rosyth.
Since then, final preparatory work, including sea fastening, has been undertaken by workers to prepare the block for her departure.
The aircraft carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales are being put together at Rosyth.
When in service they will be based in Portsmouth.
