HMS Ark Royal at Greenwich - Inside Flight Deck - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The interior of the flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal is vast. It has to be. It was quite amazing to stand here and see the inside of this floating hanger. The yellow cast on the picture is a result of the tungsten lighting used inside the ship.

This panorama shows the interior of the flight deck of the HMS Ark Royal. The picture was taken while the HMS Ark Royal lay moored on the River Thames in London off Greenwich Pier as part of the National Falklands 25th Anniversary Commemorative events in June of 2007. The interior was being prepared with a number of displays for the events taking place on the 16th June. A nose cone of one of the planes is clearly visible in the picture. To the left of this is one of the lifts used to transport aircraft and helicopters to and from the flight deck itself. These enormous lifts are powered by a series of huge driving engines which raise the platform on the two arms seen here.
More information about the HMS Ark Royal is found on the panoramic picture of the flight deck, giving a unique view over Greenwich. Whilst the location pointer shows the place where the HMS Ark Royal was moored, there is no aerial photo of her on the satellite view of the Google map of London. This panoramic picture was taken near the rear of the ship, the bow lies at the other end of the cavernous space.
