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

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.

Click on the pictures to see them full-size. The St Helena Community website has some excellent shots looking down on operations, here. A gallery of pictures of the ship sweeping into James Bay has also been published on the St Helena Air Access website, here.
