HMS Ark Royal visits the Tyne

.

.
HMS Ark Royal is paying a courtesy visit to the River Tyne this weekend, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of her completion at Swan Hunters yard in Wallsend on this once great ship building river. She is pictured here with the Tyne Pilot cutter,"Collingwood" in the foreground.

  1. Great contrast between the two vessels.

  2. That's one BIG ship, makes the Collingwood look insignificant in the foreground.

  3. This is just wonderful in every way. The red is astounding!

  4. Thanks for all these comments gentlemen; a grey ship on a grey river on a very grey day; so that Pilot cutter sure stood out.
