ROYAL NAVY: Flyco ready to go

Upper Block 14, one of the final pieces of the future HMS Queen Elizabeth has been rolled out at the Scotstoun shipyard in Glasgow. More recognisable as the aft island, the 753-tonne structure was later topped by a polemast cartridge section and made ready for shipping to Rosyth. Measuring 52m (L) by 14m (W) by 31m (H), UB14 is slightly larger than the forward island, which was installed on the ship in April. Amongst its 110 compartments, is Flying Control (Flyco), the ship’s aircraft control tower.
