QUEEN OF THE FUTURE

Progress report on the Q4, the Cunard Company's successor to the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth. At John Brown's Yard on Clydebank, the first British liner to combine a Transatlantic service with Winter cruising to the sun is taking shape.

Thanks, Rob, for posting these videos.  It is very interesting to see shots of the welding and of work on Q4's test model, especially of the anchors.  I guess the bow anchor did not work quite as planned...
QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !
