HMS Prince of Wales moves out of dry dock after nine months of repairs

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Britain's biggest warship which had been stricken since breaking down last August is ready to resume duties after completing nine months of repairs expected to cost about £25m.

HMS Prince of Wales, the Royal Navy's future flagship, broke down off the Isle of Wight 11 months ago as she set sail from Portsmouth Naval Base for a deployment to the US.

The £3bn aircraft carrier has now been moved out of dry dock at Rosyth shipyard and into the River Forth, and once at anchor in deeper water, she will fire up her systems, sail under the Forth bridges and head to Portsmouth.
