ENTER- Misc. Av. Contest: A Transport of Delight

OK, I searched and couldn't find anything similar, so apologies if this has been done before. This contest will be for any mode or vehicle of air, water or land transportation that you find particularly grand, historic, noteworthy, impressive, awesome, bitchin' or whatever. Entries must be non-fictional, and the images not from any fictional or dramatized work. ETA: The primary purpose should be transportation of people or goods, so cargo ships and transport planes OK, battleships and fighter planes No-K. Normal av rules apply, 150 by 150 pixels or 140.0 KB. Please post only one image per entrant. I will not vote except in case of a tie. Entries accepted for the next five days or so. Thanks for playing and good luck!

Considering the contest title, I figure this iconic vehicle is more than appropriate.

Photobucket has been completely messed up. Their photo editing program is a pain right in the butt.

Sorry there was a problem.

Well, I'll go with the Queen Mary II, which is the largest cruise ship built to date and quite grand.
