BREMERTON Wash. (Oct. 29, 2019) The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Olympia (SSN 717) transits Puget Sound, arriving in Bremerton, Washington, and is scheduled to begin the inactivation and decommissioning process at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The 35-year-old Olympia was commissioned on Nov. 17, 1984.

HMS Queen Elizabeth @HMSQNLZ

Possibly the most photographed man on our deck - Flight Deck Officer (FDO), Lt Cdr Richie Turrell busts more moves launching a @USMC F-35.
If you want to ask Richie a deck-related question, please post below. He will answer as many as he can over the coming few days #WESTLANT19

A video of this formation would definitely require Flight of the Valkyries as background music.

You can barely see it in the bottom picture, but in the forward inboard corner of the LH main wheel well, you can just see the intake for the APU (there's a similar one on the other side).  I do not believe that any B-2A kit out there really depicts this nor do the detail sets that I've seen add it.

I loved that close-up.  I recognize several panel assemblies I worked on, as well as other bits and pieces.  I could tell a few stories...

That must be hard packed snow, the aircraft appears to be sitting on it gear up and neither the engine exhaust nor the prop-rotor downwash appears to be stirring up loose snow.
