VIDEO: Royal Navy’s largest-ever aircraft carrier visits Halifax


The Royal Navy’s 65,000-tonne warship, its biggest ever, arrived in Halifax on Thursday for an historic first visit.

HMS Queen Elizabeth is being joined in the harbour by other ships from the UK Carrier Strike Group, on a deployment called WESTLANT 19 that will take place off the east coast of the United States.

“The carrier has made Canada her first port of call, since crossing the Atlantic from her home port of Portsmouth, in a demonstration of the high regard in which the UK holds its close relationship with its fellow Commonwealth nation,” Maritime Forces Atlantic said in a news release.

HMS Queen Elizabeth is anchored southeast of Georges Island.
