UK moves forward with carrier construction

The Royal Navy let a contract to buy the elevators, or “lifts” in England, as part of the overall construction program for the two new large deck aircraft carriers it intends to build. See a story here. The contract was awarded to the engineering firm McTaggert Scott. The elevators will be used to move aircraft, ordnance and equipment from the hanger deck to the flight deck. While there have been stories of slow down in the work on the two ships this contract indicates that the Navy is starting to move forward.
