Harrier Jump jet aboard HMS Ark Royal, farewell tour 2010

HMS Ark Royal (R07) visits Northumbrian Quay, North Shields as part of her farewell tour of Britain. The Keel of the Ark Royal R07 was laid down in 1978 at the Swan Hunters Shipyard in North Shields and so made for a fitting final stop over prior to her final voyage to Portsmouth where she will be decommissioned.
