    Default H.M.S. Ark Royal

    Heard on the news today,that the Ark Royal has sailed into Portsmouth for de-commisioning,3 years earlier than planned,and will also make the Seaharrier redundant! It seems more than a little strange to leave the U.K. without this capability,but I can only assume they know what they are doing?!Here are a couple of pic's showing the Harriers leaving for the last time,and sailing into Portsmouth.

    The Argentinos are celebrating, there is nothing to stop them attacking the Falklands now.
    The French wont help they were assisting Argentina last time in `82.

    So I wonder where that leaves us,if, we went ahead with the hare-brained scheme to share aircraft carriers,with the French??............maybe fire Exocet's at ourselves!

    The Argentine navy consists of 42 vessels,including 4 destroyers,9 corvettes,and 3 sub's,so no tourists allowed!They are only 290 miles away,while we are nearly 8,000!
