HMS Queen Elizabeth Bridge Lifted Into Place

The forward bridge of the future HMS Queen Elizabeth is lifted and moved to its spot on the flight deck in this timelapse photograph series from the Aircraft Carrier Alliance. The Queen Elizabeth-class carriers are unusual in having two bridges, a forward one, shown here, for the typical naval uses of operating the ship itself, and one just astern that will contain primary flying control spaces.
