Aircraft carrier construction. Worker standing on the deck of the INS Vikramaditya, formerly the Soviet 'Admiral Gorchkov', during preparations for sale to the Indian Navy. The ship is being converted from helicopter-only operations to full aircraft operations by the addition of a 'ski-jump' ramp toward the bows and arrestor wires at the stern. This will allow the use of MiG-29K fighter aircraft such as the snow-covered example at lower centre. Photographed at Severodvynsk, Russia.
