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.
During the course of the HMS Queen Elizabeth’s first deployment, the F-35B Lightning jet has completed over 200 launches and landings, 20 high-risk shipborne rolling vertical landings, and nearly 100 bomb drops.
After four months of gruelling training, it all ends with pageantry and military spectacle in New York Harbour.
Witness the challenges and achievements of this remarkable ship, her pilots, and her crew during the final weeks of her assignment.
