On Air Night Flight | Midnight - 5:00am

Surprise royal visit later this week!

There will be a special royal visit on Friday when the cruise liner the QE2 sails through Manx waters on her farewell tour of the British Isles.

She is due in Douglas Bay at around 6.45am, and will stay until 7.30am.

The flagship of the Cunard Line for 30 years, she made her maiden voyage in 1969, and she will be hard to miss at more than 70,000 tons and 963 feet long.

To celebrate the visit, Isle of Man Post says it will issue a limited edition of covers commemorating the call to Douglas.
