UK's new Aircraft Carrier HMS Prince of Wales leaves Shipyard for the first time.


Check out this drone video of the UK's newest aircraft carrier heading out to sea for the first time, compliments of contributor Hightning McQueen.  It's the HMS Prince of Wales, which is built around the F-35 short take-off and vertical landing aircraft (STOVL) aircraft.  The PoW is the second of the two planned Queen Elizabeth-class of small conventionally-powered carriers, the first of which was commissioned in December, 2017.  The 280 meter long ships (around 920 ft.) displace about 65k tons.
