  • QM2 at Cobh

    She departed here yesterday, and will be in Cobh on the 21st October if anyone is in the area.

    Here is a photo I took of her departure yesterday. Reversing out of the new Mayflower Terminal.

        Cheers GH. She's probably the most photographed vessel I've done.

        Goldie, Im sure you have taken pics of QM2 at Cobh? or was that Independence of the Seas.

          She hasn't been here yet... I'm not that good.

              Straight from the original Queen Mary, I believe?

                Im not sure sure on that one.

                But her whistle is audible for up to 10 miles!

                Im 7 miles from Dock and can hear her depart.

                          Goldie linked me to photos he uploaded to the gallery via msn. Thought I'd link the rest of you in case you're interested.

                          Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
                          Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
                          Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
                          Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

                              Very nice pic

                              Anyone know why the escort tug ' Alex' was shadowing QM2 on her arrival and departure?7

                              Or was she just letter off her water jets as can be seen in my pic by the Southampton based tugs.
