Photos of the QE2 Visit to the River Tyne in September 2007.

These photos were taken from North Shields in September 2007 when the QE2 finally entered the River Tyne at the fourth attempt.

After heavy rain the sun shone, water cannon sprayed from fire fighting tugs and fireworks crackled overhead.

History in the making and a sight unlikely to be seen again rewarded those who had stayed.

The photos may take a while to load depending on your connection speed.

Water cannon spraying from Tugs at the entrance to the River Tyne gave the signal that this time the QE2 was was going to enter the river.

Soon the huge ship sailed past Tynemouth Pier - this time it did not turn away.

Timing could not have been better as the setting sun shone and cast a shadow
of the lighthouse on the ship as she sailed majestically past.
