Queen Elizabeth II

On Sunday, 16th September, 2007, Queen Elizabeth II sailed past Flamborough Head. She was on one of her last round-Britain cruises before sailing to Dubai to become a permanent fixture there. It was a beautiful fine day and thousands flocked to the headland to see this magnificent ship.

QE2 at her closest. Between her and the camera the offshore (Marine Engineer) and inshore (Lords Feoffees III) lifeboats of Bridlington can just be made out.

This photograph of the QE2 was taken at her earlier sail by Flamborough Head. It was in the late 90s if I remember correctly. We took time off work and a large group of us were there to see this magnificent ship.
