HMS Warrior - the planes (2)

These are photos that are in dads albums of HMS Warrior of some of the ships planes. I've got no idea what he was doing on the flight deck to take these photos other than he must have been off watch at the time, either that or they were taken by someone else. Either way, I think that they're pretty spectacular.

In November 2000, Tony Pearce, who was one of the two meteorologists, emailed me saying that there were two photographers, Kingsley Jones and Norman Ford, on HMS Warrior, it is more than likely that these took the photographs.
