Driftwood 9 56

The Atlantic Conveyor is a container carrier ship, built in 1985 at Swan Hunter’s shipyard in Wallsend. One of the last large ships to have been built on the Tyne. (Built as a replacement to SS Atlantic Conveyor, a merchant navy ship that had been requisitioned to the Falklands war and was struck and sank in May 1982.)

The North East Maritime forum has a series of photos from the launch …¬†Apparently she’s still out there, now under Swedish flag?
