Aircraft Birthday Card - Royal Navy McDonnell Douglas Phantom & HMS Ark Royal R09

 

Two icons of the Royal Navy are seen together some time in the 1970s as a McDonnell Douglas Phantom II leaves the decks of HMS Ark Royal, the only British carrier equipped to carry them. Both were the victims of huge political controversy as the F-4 was procured to replace cancelled British projects and the “Ark” was decommissioned at a time of great change and downsizing for the Navy.

 

For anyone serving in the navy during the 1970s, this card would make an ideal Birthday card.
