QE2 arriving in Dubai
« on: May 11, 2009, 06:51 PM »
I know it has been 6 months now QE2 has been retired but I found this newsreel of QE2 arriving in Dubai. She did recieve quite a welcome didn't she.



Quite a lot of British ships was there aswell.

Thanks for the link.

That's one video I don't recall watching.

Though, I was watching from the bridgecam as she docked. Very heart-breaking.

Watching the Utube video tears in my eyes build up even after 6 nonths and now knowing she
in a coma far, far away from home.

Click picture for larger image but you may need to change the zoom level.

Thank You, Robert

It's a great photo - until clicking to enlarge,
then a massive aeroplane, sky and no sign of QE2!!

Hmm!

Lucky you :) If I click the image all I get is a bit of the sky in the top, left hand, corner :( There are no scroll bars and I've tried to scroll using the mouse and nothing happens. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Down in the extreme bottom right hand corner of the enlargement you can see a little box marking 100% - with a drop down menu. try reducing it.

Thank you, both Waverley and Eyrebrush!

Unfortunately there's nothing that I can do to see the Bigger Picture with QE2 in the frame -
and in some ways... 
it's not that I don't care - it's just that like many others I feel so, so sad when something really beautiful is there for us to see -
That was such a sad day for QE2 too.

I s'pose that no news could be good news - but it is now 6 months less 4 days since she was left there - and I wish she was here.

Yes :) and no :(

When I look at the image in my usual browser there is no zoom box at the bottom right hand corner. However if I use Internet Explorer the zoom box is there and, by using it, I can see the full picture. I prefer to use Chrome which I find far faster then IE except there are some sites that it does not work with. This appears to be one such site.

WOW!  Thanks Chris.  Beautiful shots, but hard to forget just how sad that day was.   :'(

Great find Chris and thanks.  On the down side, the clip rushes through and would benefit from being slowed down to enable the viewer to savour the images but certainly impressive and good on Nakheel - one wonders what other material they might have?
