My father served in USS Vicksburg in 1949. Very different sort of ship.

MAY I add my voice to the other dissenters, what are they thinking??

Straighten out that curled up bit at the front and she'd be good as new. Sheesh - what a waste. Great snap!

Superb photos - especially this one.

great shot of the farewell. the moody sky is very appropriate.

Nice moody shot.

She's a fine-looking ship. I'm just not sure what role carriers and jets have in the country's defence. Are we threatened by enemies with big gray ships and fast jets?

Bloody stupid idea to scrap the Harriers.

They could still have been used on the new carrier.

As it is, the only thing they'll be flying from that for a while will be kites.

Nice shot and a nice memory as Ark Royal sails into the err su...err distance.
I saw it at Liverpool for a well received visit.

And the jump jets get scrapped with her. Another of our inventions just thrown away.
