How an Aircraft Carrier Gets Assembled, in Timelapse

Shaunacy Ferro

A few days ago, the final chunk of the under-construction British aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales shipped out from Glasgow toward the dockyards on Scotland’s eastern coast. The ship, constructed in pieces at various locations across the UK, is one of the largest British warships ever built. 

Watch in this timelapse as the mammoth pieces—the final one weighs 827 tons—fit together like the world’s most serious LEGO set.
