Section of new RN Aircraft carrier leaving the Clyde

Filmed this today at Bowling Harbour on the Clyde on way to a call. Section of new Queen Elizabeth class Aircraft Carrier. It just squeezed under the Erskine Bridge. It's on it's way round the north coast of Scotland to Rosyth for assembly.

Excellent !! thanks for posting that, Ive been passing the AMT Trader in Port Glasgow outside the Ferguson yard for about two months and wondered what it was for ? ... Only discovered this morning when I was passing the BAE yard on the other side of the Clyde on South St and saw the barge there with its load

You don't get the appreciation of just how big it is from the vid. BAE will now be building an even bigger section. Nice MOD Delta RIB ahead of it and a wee Humber at the back.
