Hi Bob,

Yes, I'm not sure if she's a temporary addition to the Thames fleet or more permanent. I think she was working at Felixstowe for a while, judging by some of the photos on site.

I heard that the factory was coming down, to be replaced by more apartments eh? Great if you can afford one.. Maybe I'll win the lottery this week :lol:

Hi Phil,
Was completely ignoring this one yesterday, more interested in the Lica Maersk it was "tied" to, then I noticed the short name and took a closer look. Wonder how many times it had got past me before?
Notice any difference in the background? If not, you soon will. The old AEI factory at Northfleet is soon to be demolished. Unfortunately, it will be replaced by the usual "yuppie" apartments. Or - in the present climate - will it?
Nice photo, though, considering you are on the wrong side of the river! You must have been out and about pretty early on Saturday.

Great shot in the windy conditions Phil, glad you got down there. I've never seen this one on the Thames.
John J.
