A floating city with it's now airport. My "city" doesn't have an airport.

That's a great image.

Outstanding! Great subject, the aging of which is captured perfectly with a marvelous B&W conversion. Good stuff, Mike.

I think this is partly correct ... they run out of money for planes for the 2nd vessel HMS Prince Charles (well, poor Charles again).
If I remember correctly she experienced a significant flooding in the engine room during sea trial some weeks ago. And NOT because of the parts my engineering team designed for the propulsion
It was a fun project - thanks for your tax money KD!

It was the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier I was thinking of... the one that had propeller problems and underwent further safety checks while anchored up here at Invergordon.

Which we all thought was an awfully polite way of saying... it's broken.

So what your actually saying is... you didn't have a hand in breaking it then.

That's not just a Sailors thing... we used to have a phrase saying that all military kit had to be "Squaddy Proof".

A fine old adage states "If anything can go wrong, it will".

I've seen it far too many times now... so I know for sure it's true.

It would seem that quite a few folk are laying claim to be the originators of such things...
