HMS Ark Royal arrives in Portsmouth for the very last time.
Fleet flagship HMS Ark Royal returned to her home port of Portsmouth for the final time on 3rd December 2010, ending 25 years of service to the Royal Navy across the globe.
The aircraft carrier is being decommissioned early next year and sailed into Portsmouth Naval Base following a brief farewell tour of the UK and a stopover in Hamburg.
In keeping with tradition she flew a decommissioning pennant.
Her role as the current Royal Navy flagship will initially be taken on by amphibious assault ship HMS Albion.
