Remarks: A very heavy landing when the pilot misjudged the rise and fall of the deck onboard HMS Illustrious. He could easily have broken the outrigger wheels, but, luckily, didn't. You can see by what happened to the outrigger wheel that it was a close call.
Remarks: Starting up to taxi and depart from HMS Illustrious for the last time before the type was retirement from service. This photograph is dedicated to all of the aircrew and groundcrew who have made this aircraft into the legend that it has become.
