The government announced recently that the RN's new carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, would be arriving in her home port of Portsmouth around 19th/20Th August.

I wonder? I have just spotted it on AIS south of Weymouth, pointed directly at the Isle of Wight and making 24 knots. It does claim to be heading for Rosyth but doesn't that seem silly? Travel all the way around the UK south and east coasts, then turn around and get back here for Saturday? Now pointing at Portland, according to ship finder. Nothing on Southampton VTS or Portsmouth QHM web sites>

An update; QHM Portsmouth is now showing HMS Queen Elizabeth at the OSB at 05:45 and OSB to harbour at 06:45.

And just to make sure she behaves herself, they are sending out HMS Exploit to keep an eye on things!
