The Flying Sailors: Airborne On a Jet of Steam. (Main picture) The Ark Royal; (inset left) Buccaneer 52 fighter and Sea Vampire prototype; (inset right) how flight decks have changed. This is the original artwork from Look and Learn no. 1025 (31 October 1981).

HMS Ark Royal (R09) was an Audacious-class aircraft carrier of the Royal Navy and, when she was decommissioned in 1978, was its last remaining conventional catapult and arrested-landing aircraft carrier. She was the world's first aircraft carrier to be commissioned with an angled flight deck, preceding the first American carrier with this feature, USS Forrestal, by nine months.
