This day in history:
On this day in 1967 the QE2 is officially launched at John Brown Shipyard on the Clyde by the Queen. Over 40 years the QE2's passengers have included most of the crowned heads of Europe, politicians including Lady Thatcher and Nelson Mandela, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and explorer Sir John Blashford-Snell, stars including Vera Lynn, most of the Beatles individually, Mick Jagger and David Bowie. Cunard is now selling the QE2 to Istithmar, the investment arm of Dubai World, owned by the government of Dubai. In 2009 the QE2 will become a floating `hotel, retail and entertainment destination` at the Palm Jumeirah, the enormous palm-shaped artificial island being developed as a complex of tourist hotels and apartments, also by Dubai World. read more
