An updated thread from that which I posted before.Three pictures of her-on the building berth at BAe Systems' Govan yard in 2000 where construction,although prefabricated was carried out in the open in time honoured fashion.
The second shot taken from TV news coverage shows her launch on 9th February 2001 and the third shows her passing under Erskine Bridge on her way to drydock pre-trials in May 2002.

Another nightmare build programme, with the Navy wanting Naval vessels built to commercial standards. Don't think BAE made a penny on the 2 Wave ships.
