WW2 Ark Royal Google Earth

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is the shadow/ outline off Gibraltar 36degrees 08mins 39 N 5degrees 18 mnutes 38W -22m
    the WW2 Ark? When viewed against the surface ships seems a likely candidate size and shape wise. Meanwhile I'll start searching for the wreck of the Hesperus.
     
  2. Documentry on finding the Ark

    HMS Ark Royal -- Part 1 - YouTube

    Wikipedia says it was found 35 mile out to the east of Europa Point, those co-ordinates are roughly 2-3 miles off gib.
     
  3. Do you think you'd see light reflecting off a wreck 2000mtrs (?) down? When they filmed the wreck (Utube link above this post) it was in complete darkness as sunlight doesn't penetrate to that depth.

    Plus, to the best of my knowledge, googles cameras don't film over sea... or the site google earth doesn't assemble the mosiac of photographs over water... they just do the coastal strip and any islands.

    Pearl harbour is worth a look on google earth as are some of the US airfields and if you want a laugh have a look at Faslane.
