Here's another chance to watch the BBC video, on another site with a collection of QE2 videos, all taken from YouTube as far as I can see :

She really must be the most photographed and filmed moving thing on this earth   :)  -- and no wonder!

Thank you for the BBC Hampshire links.
I have been following them heaps of years.


She really must be the most photographed and filmed moving thing on this earth   :)  -- and no wonder!

Along with Concorde the only Supersonic Passenger Transport Aircraft in the history of mankind.

There was no Concorde or other 2x+ Supersonic Passenger Transport Aircrafts before and considering the state the world economy is in, we will most probably never see her successor in our lifetime.

There were other beautiful cruise ships before the QE2. France (not the crippled Norway) was certainly on par with the QE2. She was my first cruise ship experience from childhood, so sleek and elegant and I loved her winged funnels. I still love her dearly and I will never forget her.

Hi all,

I emailed the generic hampshire@bbc address last night and this is the reply that was sent back this morning

"John -
 
Thanks for your email.  We've had to move our QE2 content as we have just relaunched the website on a new publishing system.  All the QE2 content is still available through this page -
http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/hampshire/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8156000/8156546.stm
 
Just scroll down to the QE2 farewell section
 
Best wishes
Stephen"

Hope this helps!

John

I'm *gutted* to say, its GONE!

It was FAB!

I thought everything on BBC News's site stayed put forever, but maybe this wasn't core news so got the heave-ho.  Anyway, its a real shame, and a waste considering the huge amount of effort that must have gone into it.

Rob, I think you may be able to retrieve your guts.

Have a look at this site :

http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/hampshire/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8353000/8353074.stm

with its link to the Forum (in first place among the external sites!) and to various other BBC QE2 web pages, themselves opening into others again...

Check it out and see what you think. Looks rather good to me...  :D
