Ibrox at Night Framed Panoramic

A fantastic framed panoramic photograph of Ibrox at night, in celebration of 140 years of glorious history.
Ibrox Stadium is a football stadium located on the south side of the River Clyde in the Ibrox district of Glasgow. Ibrox is the third largest football stadium in Scotland, having an all-seated capacity of 50, 987.
Ibrox is best known for being the home ground of Rangers FC. It was opened as Ibrox Park in 1899. Vast earthen terraces were built in its place, while a main stand, which is now a listed building, was built in 1928. A British record crowd of 118, 567 gathered in January 1939 for a league match with Celtic. After 1971 the stadium was largely rebuilt. The vast bowl-shaped terracing was removed and replaced by three rectangular, all-seated stands by 1981. After renovations were completed in 1997, the ground was renamed Ibrox Stadium.
The Ibrox pitch is surrounded by four covered all-seater stands, officially known as the Bill Struth Main (south), Broomloan (west), Govan (north) and Copland Road (east) Stands. Each stand has two tiers, with the exception of the Bill Struth Main Stand, which has had three tiers since the Club Deck was added in 1991. The two corner areas, known as the West and East areas of the Govan Stand, have one tier of seating below a JumboTron screen.
Ibrox has also hosted the Scotland national football team, particularly when the national stadium Hampden Park was redeveloped in the 1990s. Ibrox also hosted three Scottish domestic cup finals in the same period. It has also been the venue for concerts by major performers, including Frank Sinatra.

Merlin Helicopter Releasing Decoy Flares

As the sun goes down over the Indian Ocean, HMS Northumberland's Merlin helicopter sends more than 100 decoy flares cascading through the sky.
In the middle of her counter-piracy and counter-drugs work, the Devonport-based frigate's helicopter tested one of the many tricks in her box her flares.
These are installed to decoy incoming heat-seeking missiles fired either by other aircraft, or ground-based threats - drawing them away from the helicopter's engines on to a much hotter target.
A crew of four Fleet Air Arm personnel two pilots, one observer and one aircrewman plus nine engineers and technicians, and an aircraft controller, who oversee sorties from Northumberland's operations room in the bowels of the frigate, are responsible for the helicopter, which is embarked for the duration of the deployment.
The Merlin is one of several Flights (in this case 05) provided by 829 Naval Air Squadron in Culdrose, Cornwall, to Type 23 frigates for operations around the globe.
HMS Northumberland took over from her sister HMS Sutherland at the end of November and will be prowling some of the 2 million square miles of sea that's more than eight times the size of the North Sea which is the domain of the international maritime security effort in the region until the spring
