On Google Earth, somebody has gone to the trouble of converting QE2 into a 3D object.

See attached.

QE2 from the air - with a clear picture of Port Rashid

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

QE2 in exactly the same berth that the good ship Arcadia used for nearly a week in 1972!

Someone at work showed me the Flight Simulator mode in Google Earth (desktop version).

If you turn on the 3D model layers you can overfly Dubai's skyscrapers and the QE2.

So ill in bed the other day I did a flew flypasts of the QE2 in Dubai.

Screenshots attached :o)

You can turn of the HUD if you want.

Here is a link to a good overhead photograph of our lovely QE2--

Zoom in and see all the deck chairs just waiting for passengers to sit/lie on them.

New Image of QE2 on Google Earth
« Reply #29 on: Apr 16, 2011, 03:47 PM »
I was on Google Earth yesterday, and QE2 no longer shows up at the Dubai shipyard.  The current image of Port Rashid is from later in 2009, after the drydocking, and QE2 is now at the main port, although not yet pushed forward in the corner.  She looks magnificant in this view, obviously fresh from the Summer 2009 drydocking.

You stole my thunder there as I was about to post that info!  ;D

Also noticed that she is no longer showing in Sydney. I've still to check Gibralter and Malaga. I guess eventually as Google Earth gets updates she will only show up in Dubai  :-[

QE2 on Goolge Maps in Dubai - Update.
« Reply #32 on: Jun 18, 2011, 01:40 PM »
Just noticed today that QE2 is moored at Port Rashid (rather than in the Dubai dry docks) on Google Maps now.

Obviously the satellite images were taken some months ago before her move to the inner Harbour.

Thought you'd like to know.

QE2 and her lack of expansion joints compared to other similar liners.
