THIS image shows the bow unit of the navy’s new aircraft carrier being put into place.
Aircraft Carrier Alliance workers fitted the section to the HMS Prince of Wales, which will be based in Portsmouth.
She is the second of the two Queen Elizabeth-class carriers coming into service in the Royal Navy.
The 620-tonne block was lifted using a huge Goliath crane, which was attached to a lifting frame.
Delivery director Angus Holt said: ‘Seeing the forward island in position on the flight deck marks a highly visible achievement in the assembly programme. And with her bow now attached she is taking on the appearance of the immensely powerful aircraft carrier she will be when she enters service.’
