Here are some interesting facts...

  • Over 470 London buses can park on the flight deck.
  • The Queen Elizabeth is more than three times the size of HMS Illustrious.
  • The on-board water treatment plant can produce over 500 tonnes of fresh water every day.
  • The Queen Elizabeth was built in sections across the UK & shipped to Rosyth in Scotland.
  • It's range is 10,000 nautical miles!
