Royal Norwegian Navy Glimt at Eriksberg

Missile fast patrol boat P964 photographed at Gothenburg on 5 May 2013.
See picture #23339 for details of this extremely fast (over 60 knots top speed) Skjold class corvette.
Some of the remaining buildings dating from when Eriksberg was one of the largest shipyards in the world (until 1979) can be seen in the background, on the right. The one with the black upper storeys is now the Hotel 11, and the red brick one is now an exhibition hall.
This area is nearly all apartments nowadays, including mine!
