On Wednesday March 20 teams at the ACA lifted the heaviest section yet. In a four and a half hour operation the section, weighing more than 900 tonnes, was gently moved into place, revealing the full length of HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time.

Two pictures show the view of Queen Elizabeth from the dockside and an aerial view on Good Friday 29 March 2013. Four aerial shots on 1 May.
