The Register: "Electric Plane-Flinger For US And Royal Navies Doing Well"

The dreaded deadloads lol, used to be a laugh watching those trials in Pompey. I do remember (pic missing) an old piano getting waved off the Vic. Yes the old deadloads were painted yellow.

But Prince of Wales will be gas-turbine propelled, not a steamer as in days of yore (or a nuclear steamer like US carriers)

Er, no. The ships will be propelled by electric motors. Gas turbines will be the prime movers for 2 of the 6 11kV alternators.

....a steamer
Excuse me while I yell; KNOB.

I seem to recall that the US will require that we share the R&D cost of EMALs if we buy it so it won't be 'cheap'.

Brilliant pics, I do have most of them somewhere Soleil, I was looking at the list of the sick bay tiffies, trying to remember the name of "Danny", he was a character alright. The old Vic was certainly a very handsome ship.

The Older Ark fired off a piano with two dummies in evening suits. Part of the Peter Cook and dudley Moore show. The dummies first evening suits went missing during the middle watch.

Without wishing to come across as all stroppy...

I seem to recall that, O U A T, there were some concerns (these days that would be 'issues' :roll:) about the rising costs of those old steam cat launching strops being 'wasted': One ending up in D Jones's Locker at every launch.

Didn't someone bright spark invent a patent bow-strop-catching-net, or similar, and thus ensure everlasting glory for himself in the history of the FAA and a Herbie Lott Pewter Tankard, too?

And - Will these new electro-magneteric launch cat systems need suchlike strops/recovery nets?





Out of my realm but just curious ... After all, I once proudly wore a cap tally with 'VICTORIOUS' embroidered in gold thread upon it, albeit preceded by 'TS' :blush: :blush:

You are quite correct, the Old Ark had them fitted. Will forward your suggestion,( For the QE Carriers) of recovery nets onto "Scouse" who will recommend you for the Herbert Lott prize. Believe the prize this year is an ELWE at an Aggie Westons of your choice.:-D
