26 November 2008 was the day QE2 spent her last hours on open water. It was exactly 40 years since she spent her first hours in open water on 26 November 1968.

Wonderful photos - thank you for keeping and sharing them here, too.
The last days...these must have been almost unbearably sad for those on board too.
