Sea Vampire lands on HMS Ocean, 4 December 1945

Here we see the Sea Vampire flown by Lt Cmdr Eric 'Winkle' Brown as it comes in for the first landing of a entirely jet powered aircraft on an aircraft carrier, HMS Ocean, on 4 December 1945.

Many thanks to David Horne for sending us these pictures, which came from the collection of his father, Peter Horne, who served with the Fleet Air Arm from 1942 to 1946.
