Dramatic change of wind direction26 viewsMy Dad's (James A. Hypher's) photo taken from Calshot Spit on Saturday 25th June 2005 as we watched QE2 depart Southampton with my Grandad onboard, on her Trafalgar 200 cruise.

QE2's funnel smoke went from trailing aft and slightly off to starboard, to swinging around to trailing ahead out of the funnel and to starboard, before then trailing almost vertically from the funnel in the middle of the famous "reverse S" manoeuvre past Cowes.
