Nice video of the RV landing. Looks like a MK3 or 4 Merlin at the end of the video acting as plane guard.

With rolling vertical landing eventually becoming a regular occurrence, will there be (or, is there already) a safety barricade system installed aboard the Queen Elizabeth-class carriers?

Merlin MK4, the grey ones are the fully navalised versions and the only ones deployed on QNLZ, the MK3 are still NATO green and are used for Training whilst awaiting their turn to upgrade. I think one is currently used on QNLZ as plane guard and COD whilst the other two are deployed ashore with the Royal Marines training with the USMC.

Nice find fredymac, now the Queen Elizabeth is now a proper Warship since they have handled ordnance.   B)

The aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth has returned home to Portsmouth after successfully finishing her sea trials of the US.

The video below is from the Royal Navy's You Tube channel.
