Cool time lapse of an aircraft carrier being assembled piece by piece

Thought this was really cool to watch.

Man, building an aircraft carrier is just like playing with Lego bricks! At a much, much larger scale, of course. Here is footage showing how the final section of the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier the HMS Prince of Wales was slapped on top of the ship. The piece, known as Aft Island, weighs 750 tonnes and will control aircraft operations on the carrier.


That’s awesome.

Awesome video, great post

I saw the ship I was on being built. It’s amazing how all of it fits together like a puzzle.
