These pictures capture the majesty of HMS Ark Royal, now decommissioned and sent to Turkey for scrap.
In Picture 1, the ship is given a rapturous welcome in 1993 as she returns to Portsmouth from the second Gulf War.
Picture 2 shows a Sea King helicopter lifting off from the carrier before she departed for the Gulf.
Picture 3 is a reminder of her predecesor - and a moment of history, when a Harrier 91127 made the first vertical take-off from a naval warship.
Picture 4 shows the Ark entering Portsmouth Harbour in 1994 and Picture 5, taken in the same year, shows her sailing out of the harbour into a sunset.
