QE2 bids farewell to British waters 238


As part of her Farewell to the British Isles’ tour the QE2 has berthed off the Edinburgh-Fife coastline.

The iconic vessel set sail to Southampton before making her final voyage to New York.

She will then continue on to Dubai where she will be de-commissioned and become a floating hotel.

Her final journey to Scottish waters was marked by two RAF fly-pasts down the Firth of Forth and over the QE2.

A selection of tug boats also performed a series of manoeuvres called “Dancing tugs” while operating water sprays around the ship and a flotilla of yachts from local clubs bid her farewell.
