Once completed, HMS Queen Elizabeth will be the United Kingdom’s largest warship, longer than three football fields and taller than Niagara Falls.
Rise of the Supercarrier is a 2019 behind the scenes documentary looking at the UK’s largest warship.
Britain’s biggest warship, HMS Queen Elizabeth, is in her second month of a gruelling four-month deployment in the west Atlantic Ocean to test her compatibility with the top-secret F-35B Lightning stealth jet.
After dozens of landings and launches – by day and by night – Commanding Officer Jerry Kyd wants to find out how well the aircraft and the supercarrier will operate in difficult weather and wind conditions.
They are put to the test when the ship is pounded by one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the southeastern US in decades.
