mmm launched in 1988, commissioned in 1990, probably has only about 10 years of active service left.

If you paste the following co-ordinates into Google Earth and then drag the Streetview Icon to it you will have one of my favourite views.
Move north if streetview will allow you to get to the end of that sequence of shots.
Take a look at the monkeys on the rocks and then take in the 360 degree view showing Gib, Spain and Morocco

in which case perhaps they will be opening up all the old Welsh coal mines then.

I think Nuke is here to stay, but despite the stealthy nature of such boats they can still be found - eventually. Stealth is a prime aspect for a hunter-killer, they are the ones who take it to the enemy.

I'm utterly fascinated by the place now.

I used to work with a computer engineer in London who came from Gibraltar, and used to urge me to go there and not Spain.
