The hangar deck (right). The nearest photograph shows the mechanism for one of the flight deck lifts.
|Views from the bridge, forward and starboard side. The presence of the vessel drew large crowds to the Liverpool waterfront during the weekend on June 07 /08/|
|Views of the flight deck. The Sea King helicopter on deck is from RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall. The ship's bell is at a slightly odd angle - it isn't the camera! Finally at the bow (right) one can see one of the three "goalkeeper" guns which protect the ship. from air attack|
