A national endeavour

The programme to build the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers is a hugely significant national endeavour.

The primary ship building facilities used to build the aircraft carriers were based in Glasgow, Appledore in Devon, Hebburn in Tyneside, Birkenhead in Merseyside, Portsmouth and Rosyth in Fife where the blocks for both ships have been brought together. There are also hundreds of companies based around the UK that make up the wider supply chain and provide many of the component parts used to construct both aircraft carriers.

Having hundreds of companies involved in the programme means that many thousands of people are currently working together as part of the massive team responsible for delivering both ships.
