HMS Illustrious and HMS Queen Elizabeth

HMS Illustrious and HMS Queen Elizabeth

Gives a great comparative view.

HMS Illustrious became a helicopter carrier following the retirement of the British Harriers in 2010 and was herself retired in 2014 shortly after this photo was taken. The HMS Queen Elizabeth is expected to be commissioned next year and to enter operational service in 2020.


    1. Thanks. I didn’t want to start back up until I was pretty sure I would be able to stick with it this time. I mean to, but then I always mean to. Life has a way of getting in the way, but hopefully I’ve got things on the right track for a change.
