4 July on board QE2
« on: Jul 04, 2013, 04:51 PM »
Theodore Scull has just posted a photograph on his Facebook page of QE2 in New York harbour on 4 July 2000, with fireworks in the background.

There is a link to this from the QE2Story Facebook page too.

I wonder was that the only time she was in the USA for 4 July, and indeed whether she was given special treatment when she was!

Happy 4 July to our US Forum members -- enjoy the festivities!

I have a QE2 couple of menus for 4 July. 

One for 4 July 1979 commemorating 203 years of independence and the other for 4 July 1986 for the 100th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.  Looks like she was in NY for 1986 but not sure if she was there in 1979, but given that the menu commemorates the celebration it is possible. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
