You don't realise how big that funnel is until someone stands near it!
"The QE2 is one of the last great transatlantic liners, and arguably the most famous liner in the world"

"QE2 and Concorde, a partnership that lasted almost 30 years... two stunning pieces of engineering, never to be forgotten!"

Those who did the "Funnel run(s)" will vouch to that.. ;)
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,

George C Griffiths mentioned to me this video about why QE2 was not re-engined in a UK yard. 

There has been previous discussion on this video in early post but it is such an excellent video that it is worth another viewing.

Were QE2s propellers the most powerful in the world?
