The British navy’s newest and most expensive aircraft carrier needs repairs after a faulty shaft seal was identified during sea trials. Officials say the HMS Queen Elizabeth, which cost roughly 3 billion pounds (USD 4 billion) to build, will be “scheduled for repair” at Portsmouth. Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson today said the repairs would not be paid for by taxpayers because contractors who built the ship would be responsible. A Royal Navy statement says the problem will not prevent the ship from sailing or interfere with the extensive sea trials program underway. Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month attended the commissioning ceremony of the carrier, which is named after the monarch.
