HMS Queen Elizabeth: Time for rest and relaxation in Mallorca

The Royal Navy aircraft carrier is on the return leg of her Carrier Strike Group (CSG21) maiden deployment.

HMS Queen Elizabeth has arrived at the capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca – Palma – rewarding the ship's company with some time for rest and relaxation. 

Recently the British-led Carrier Strike Group 21 mission (CSG21) bid farewell to American F-35s that have been part of the deployment.

The aircraft had just returned to operations from HMS Queen Elizabeth, following a crash involving a British Lightning jet from the aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean earlier this month.
