On Sunday April 25, 2004 The Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Elizabeth 2 created history when they sailed from New York Harbor together. This particular trip was the Queen Mary 2's maiden voyage, and the Queen Elizabeth 2's final voyage.
Security was extremely tight and Launch 5 was assigned a post off the Statue of Liberty as part of the security detail maintaining the security perimeter. The day was capped off with a fireworks display in the Harbor.
That summer, Launch 5 was asked to be a part of the security detail for the New Jersey Offshore Grand Prix. Check out the photos below, especially one of the boats that disintegrated!
