We have flown our first multi-ship, launching 4 jets in quick succession and recovering on completion of their ‘mission’. Absolutely awe inspiring to watch, hear and feel!
Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth Carrier Strike Group, USS Philippine Sea and USS Truxtun . The Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser and Arleigh Burke-class destroyer have joined us as jet trials continue in the USA

Anyone still ❓ our legitimacy as an aircraft carrier?🤔 Peek into our hangar - this cavernous space suddenly feels a bit cramped! Still plenty of room for more but this gives you an idea of scale when 4 ⚡️& 5 🚁 were put to bed last night
Two more UK Lightnings have landed onboard, as Operational Tests by and continue. The deck is getting busier and louder with six ⚡️ now embarked, is just a taste of what is to come.
Want to see a busy flightdeck? Enjoy this great video by Leading Photographer Dan Shepherd, of pilots from VMX-1 carrier qualifying on our deck. Preparations for our first operational deployment with & Lightnings embarked in 2021 are in full swing
Personnel from all three Services, and our jets, formed up on deck this week, to pay our respects to our war dead. This weekend and always, we will never forget those who served before us .
