HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH
Having been named by Her Majesty The Queen on 4 July, it was the turn of BTA member Targe Towing to take the stage for the shift of the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier from her dock to Rosyth’s West Wall on 17 July. The high profile and novel operation was a complete success following months of careful assessment, planning and trials. The simulator at South Shields was utilised for the latter and the joint effort by Targe, Forth Pilots, Babcocks and BP on the day contributed to this important milestone for the mighty ship.
