Re: Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers - News and Discussion

When I go on that link it shows her still against the wall :wtf: Yes. Same too. But PoW's AIS has been OFF for hours. Ignore PoW, look at the tugs. Craigleith is on PoW's bow, Hopetoun is on her stern. https://twitter.com/C_CPeebles/status/1174708128501444613 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EE1mJpUXkAA...
