Lovely photo. I used to see the Venus and Jupiter all the time. I think they are great looking ships too.

I like the way Ship designers and builders in the 60's started pushing boundaries and getting creative.

Ugly or not, that bridge is giving a nice 180 degrees view from a single spot!

The BDS houseflag was wonderful and she's certainly not an ugly ducking.
