Man with a gun guarding helicopter

 

There were a couple of RN Lynx helicopters from RNAS 702 tied down on the flight deck and they were being guarded by a marine in combat gear with a gun at the ready, just can't trust these scousers climbing all over the ship.

It would seem that Ark Royal's main task these days is carrying helicopters rather than the Harrier of previous times.

Wow, this looks great. I can't believe I missed your blog this far.
Les Auld: Thanks for the compliment lulian, appreciate it.
A sign of the times Les. One false move and you are locked up for 42 days!
Les Auld: Or end up being shot perhaps, thanks Bill.
Where have the Wheels gone?
Les Auld: Low angle and the edge of the deck gets in the way, thanks for the comment Martin.
This looks a bit sinister Les, go along with Martin re the wheels though!
Les Auld: The grey skies don't help Brian, and I was way below deck level when I took this.
