Gibraltar

HMS Queen Elizabeth arrives for first overseas visit

The Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth arrived in Gibraltar for her first overseas port visit.

The 65,000-tonne future flagship will be conducting a routine logistics stop having left her home in Portsmouth last week for helicopter trials.

These helicopter trials take place before the fixed wing F35 Lightning II trials later this year.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: "As the Rock casts its shadow over the flight deck of our world-class aircraft carrier, Gibraltar rightfully marks HMS Queen Elizabeth's first overseas stop as she refuels and takes on supplies before continuing her sea trials. I'm sure our friends in Gibraltar will be proud to see our future flagship sail through British waters into their famous port."
