After seeing photos of HMS Illustrious at Greenwich once before with fireworks, on a whim I just checked the PLA website, and they have a navigation warning that advises that there will be fireworks tonight (Thur 7th May).

The barge will be stationed just outside Deptford Creek, so it should be possible to get some really good photos of the aircraft carrier and the fireworks from almost anywhere in the vicinity.

Alas, I am elsewhere tonight otherwise I would be down there like a shot!

(on the upside, my other appointment is at another recording of Have I Got News for You – my favourite TV show)
