On 2 August 2005 when this photo was taken, the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious (RO6) on the left had just completed major alterations including the addition of an extra mast abaft her after funnel. Falklands veteran HMS Invincible (RO5), her sister ship on the right, was decommissioned and placed in indefinite reduced readiness the following day. Note the Harrier jump jet on her ski-jump forward and the Chinook helicopter on her flight deck amidships.
