HMS Ark Royal #5.
Having travelled from South Shields and stood in a huge queue, being blasted by a freezing easterly wind, it was great to get on board the Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal berthed at North Shields. This is the huge hangar deck looking more like a Steven Spielberg movie set or a stage set for a James Bond film. It is here that the Sea Harriers are prepared and made ready to be lifted up to the flight deck during operations.
Today the crew had used this space to house a number of small exhibitions depicting life on board.
