The supply ship for St Helena’s airport project has arrived off the island for the first of what promise to be many visits.
A gallery of pictures of the ship sweeping into James Bay has been published on the St Helena Air Access website, here. It will be updated as unloading progresses.
Members of the crew of the NP Glory 4 – known as the Basil Read ship, after the airport contractor - went ashore soon after arrival in James Bay.
On Wednesday, 11 July 2012, the ship is due to become the first ever to dock at the island.
