............was commissioned today
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/12/07/queen-commissions-royal-navys-newest-aircraft-carrier-hsm/ in Portsmouth Navel base.

While I am immensely proud of her as a ship I can't help wondering if the cost can justify the end result. And, of course, there is the second carrier - H.M.S. Prince of Wales still to be completed.

They look like white elephants to me ..........

"white elephant
noun
a possession that is useless or troublesome, especially one that is expensive to maintain or difficult to dispose of."

We shall see.........

Interesting looking design with the two towers.
Seems most of her aircraft are American made...... :USA:
