    Still no sponsons have been fitted yet to PoW? Makes me wonder if ACA are going for a skid first, then add sponsons afterwards. Very different assembly to QE.

    That is good news, and hopefully it means we'll see LB02/3 skidded together in a couple of weeks.

    The newsletter is out, it looks like the PoW build is the 'lessons learnt' build. http://www.aircraftcarrieralliance.c...mms-201014.pdf

    Is it at all possible or planned that both ships will be in the non tidal basin at the same time??. If so how?

    By the time PoW is ready for fitting out in the basin, QE might be out at sea having her trials.

    Very carefully.

    When it was said that the PoW build would be a bit quicker, I wasn't expecting it to be this quick. Great work by all those involved
