All secure: airport ship is first to dock at St Helena

Sharing is caring!

The NP Glory 4 has become the first ship ever to dock at St Helena. The ocean-going landing craft dropped her bow ramp on to the new jetty at Rupert’s Bay shortly after 08:00 local time on Wednesday, 11 July 2012.

First to come off were several heavy construction vehicles that had been secured on the deck of the vessel – nicknamed the Basil Read ship, after the airport construction company that has chartered her for the duration of the island’s airport project.
